Not gonna lie or sugar coat it, tonight’s class was hard. My asthmatic lungs took a hit with all that stamina in a humid room, my muscles cramped quickly then went to jello. But I pushed through and did everything minus 6 bars at the end of my set at the end of class when I could not breathe anymore.
But my stamina is getting better, I just need to get it to the point where I can make 40 bars look as good as 16 and not feel like my throat is closing up!
I am quite happy with the amount of dancing I was able to do tonight though. I think I’m able to do more stamina now than I was before nationals and I’m happy with how I danced at NANs. So, I feel like I’m in a good place for the O and I still have nearly 4 weeks.
Onward and upward, 25 days till the Oireachtas!
