All out in Nia Class

Posted by terrepruitt on June 4, 2011

I subbed a Nia Class this morning.  Nia is a lot “about” the music.  We dance to the music.  Today while I was teaching I really just let the music take me and I danced.  I didn’t hold back much because of my foot.  I don’t put my weight on my right foot when I am in ball of foot position or bow stance, but I was DOING ball of foot (a GREAT step forward in my healing process).  During the class once or twice I wobbled or missed a beat because my foot kind didn’t want to support me.  At another point I realized I was on the EDGE of my right foot (another HUGE step forward in my healing process).  I had enough time in which to think about that and while it seemed ok, I was glad when the music told me it was time to move again because it didn’t seem like I should be doing that for much longer.  I really worked my foot this morning.  I went all out in Nia class.  That led me to not wanting to do my Ten Minute Workout.  I was really dreading the lunges because I am not ready to put weight on my right foot in ball of foot position—-and that is what a lunge is!!!

I came upstairs to do it.  Then I sat down at my computer, did an e-mail or two and I decided my foot really was too tired to do it.  I logged onto my blog to post that I was skipping Terre’s Ten Ten in Ten today, but when I saw the picture of my “gym” I thought, “It is really only 10 minutes.  And it is really just the first exercise that you are dreading.  So . . . do it LESS.  Even more “less” than you have been.”  So . . . . I did it.  It is obvious to me that I spend a lot of time in my long lunges — when I do them fully on a stable foot — because I thought that I was not going to make it two times through and when I looked at my timer I had plenty of time left and I was on the stability ball pass for the second time.  When I do lunges little it takes me less time.

I did my little workout, how about you?  What are you finding while you do these exercises?
