1 day to go!
I feel remarkably calm considering tomorrow is the Pole Divas championships qualifiers in Bristol tomorrow. I have felt nervous all week but for some reason I feel OK today, that either means I will be a complete nervous wreck tomorrow or that I am finally learning to deal with performance nerves. Unfortunately I think the bundle of nerves option is more likely! Tonight I plan to visit the Mussel Inn with my husband to get some serious protein in the form of a bowl of mussels or a fish steak depending on what is on the menu.
I am aware that I have neglected my practice over the last few days as I know I have over-trained so I thought it was better to rest my muscles in the hope that my strength will return by tomorrow. The first half of my routine seems good it is the second half that worries me. I will blog on Sunday and let you know how Hayley, Tamar, our student SJ and myself get on.
Yesterday I did manage to spend a few extra moments on the pole for a photo shoot for the Herald to promote the Tavisrock Festival to be held on Sept 19th - I will blog fully about that event in the week and am thoroughly looking forward to perfoming there.
The pole dance community site is continuing to grow from strength to strength and it now has some great new articles on forthcoming UK workshops as well as another Felix cane Interview courtesy of Tiny from Candy & Chrome.
A quick bit of news on the Cystic Fibrosis trust, if you live in or around Torquay then why not visit the fabulous CF trust ball to be held at the Grand Hotel in Torquay on the 25th September, if you would like more info or would like to buy tickets just e-mail - firstname.lastname@example.org. I am unable to make the event unfortunately as I will be in Bolton opening the fabulous new JLN fitness studio! I do however hope to organise a dance event in November to raise money for the CF trust so will keep you posted on developments for that.
Off to drink some peppermint tea and do some admin!
