And it was great to hear your perspectives on it too. 🙂
So I took a step back and analyzed what I’d been doing for the past few months, to see where I could mix things up.
And I realized that I was getting caught up doing lots of stuff, and lacked focus. It was tiring me out and frustrating me at the same time. Kinda like running on a treadmill and wondering why you’re not moving!
At the same time, I was also safely within my comfort zone. Not really concentrating on learning anything new and too challenging.
Oh, and I definitely lacked solo practice! My lefty training got completely shelved, and I wasn’t developing most of the new things I’d learned. All the classes in the world can only do so much if you never take the time to do some ‘homework’ by yourself and work things through on the pole by figuring it out with your own body.
A conversation I had with Queenish made me remember how simple my pole routine used to be back when I was in inter 1: Just 1 or 2 classes of pole a week, and 1 or 2 hours of solo practice. I hadn’t learned so much yet, and my practice was pure and focused with no distractions.
So I think it’s time to revisit the simplicity of those early days, and see how it changes things now.
After all, when in doubt… isn’t it usually best to keep things simple? It sounds strangely exciting already!
