Today has been a major improvement on yesterday! Whilst tired, I have been able to get through this day with a smile on my face and positivity in my heart. Thank you all for spurring me on. Whilst I would like to say it is because I got a good sleep, I can’t, but I think it is more because of the good support I received from family, friends, and boss… and possibly the fact that I indulged in the most amazing burger and fries last night! I was so worth it, let me tell you! Have been eating a bit like a rabbit since I got here and I think I just needed some good old MEAT to make me feel better! Hahaha!
It’s been a long day. Four of us went in to do the 8:15am class and then we practiced our set-ups (for teaching all the different exercises throughout class) for an hour before beginning training. I got to teach standing-seat today. “What’s that?!” I hear you cry! Well it’s one of the many amazing seat exercises that make your bum look absolutely fabulous in jeans! It went pretty well and I got some good positive feedback and helpful constructive criticism. It was one of the other girls’ turn to have a meltdown today. Bless her… she was just being hard on herself. I totally understood her frustration. Secretly it helped me to know that someone else was feeling the pressure. I think everyone has felt tired and overloaded with information, but I think each of us is reaching that “Oh shit!” moment at different stages.
We’ve pretty much worked our way though the manual…. we just have to implement everything physically now. It’s amazing how much we have covered in just 3 days. My brain is on fire. I feel like I am going to be dreaming about this stuff soon. As it is, it is the first thing I think about whenever I wake up (during the night…. several times!!!).
I managed to read some and study tonight. Tomorrow I have to teach warm-up. We are all teaching sections of the class. Then we are working on hands-on adjustments. All good fun! I like that part particularly, as I have done a lot of adjustments during my time as a yoga instructor. I’m not afraid to grab and body and tweak it!
I’m currently waiting on the hotel’s laundry service. I’m getting though workout clothes and Bar Method socks like there is no tomorrow! Had to do a little wash to tide me over! Nine hours a day of being a working, sweaty body will do that! I hope they come soon coz I’m ready for bed!
We plan to be at the studio for 8:15am again tomorrow. Practice first and then class afterwards.
