11:37 am - Dance Journal #1
Okay, so I'm taking a physical education class called "Stress Relief Through Movement" the description made me think it would involve yoga, stretching and "rhythmic movement". Yes, looking back I know I should have realized that meant dance, but I wasn't expecting it at the time.

One of the requirements is that I keep a journal of what I feel about the class. Odd, but if that's what I gotta do, that's what I gotta do.

So what do I think after class number one? Easy. One word. OWWWWwww. Don't get me wrong, during the class it felt good to move and aside from being unable to do some of the poses due to knee issues it was fun, but I HURT afterward. Even after a night of sleep I'm achy. My legs do not like me at the moment, especially given that I have to walk to and from the bus stop again due to issues with my scooter.

Did I mention I have a scooter? Well I do, and she served me well until right before Spring semester began. As in, RIGHT before. I was late to my first class because it didn't want to stay on.

But I digress. Dance Journal...Aside from the pain, it was a pretty fun class. We did a lot of focused breathing and I realized that I've been around the yoga-loving friend long enough to automatically breathe to my diaphraghm (sp?) when told to breathe. My stomach was rising along with my sternum, but the stomach came a hair faster. I didn't do the shallow breathing thing where chest goes up and stomach goes in. It was actually a bit hard to try and make myself breathe that way, so I just gave up and did the deep slow breathing. It's a lot more relaxing that way.

I really need to get myself some proper dance clothes, because jeans are not gonna cut it and I need something built to wick away sweat. Because I did sweat...a lot...it was stinky. Might want to add a miniature deodorant to that list. I just need to get my darn student aid first.
