Brief Hiatus

Hi Everyone!

I’ve been overwhelmed lately with my classes and new work commitments that I’ve been at a loss of what to post on here lately, and I feel like I could use a brief break to get everything organized and focus on my ballet classes and practice and figure out the direction this blog is headed.

I also need some time to figure out and manage the issues I’ve been having with horrible shin splints/tendonitis/whatever.

I’ll be back in roughly two weeks with more articles and profiles (sorry to those who’ve been waiting to see there’s go up, they’ll be up when I get back, I promise!)

Thanks for continuing to read this blog, and I’ll try to keep posting some links with tips and other advice in the meanwhile to the Facebook page.

Injury Woes

I finally went to my university’s Student Health Services for my leg/ankle pain again this morning, and didn’t get great news. I was told it’s probably tendonitis (again…I just dealt with this in my right ankle a few months ago and took a significant amount of time off) and I’d have to spend a good month off of ballet (I’ve already cried because of how heartbreaking this is to me). I’m headed to my university’s hospital this afternoon for an x-ray to check for a stress fracture.

So while this means lots of time for stretching (I’ve been keeping up with the 30 day challenge and I’ll have a picture up later today since we’ve hit Day 7–one week–I can proudly now say that my nose can touch my knee while I’m reaching for my toes!), I was wondering:

For those of my ballerina friends who’ve¬†unfortunately been injured before, how do you stay in ballerina shape while you can’t dance/how do you deal with boredom?
