Today, my sister and I took a gymnastics lesson.
We used to take gymnastics. Over twenty years ago. Needles to say, our athletic abilities are not exactly the same as they were then.
Actually, the lesson went pretty well. The instructor (Miss Hannah!) was fairly easy on us, but definitely made us get out of our comfort zones. Ballet has prepared me for the flexibility and posture, and some of the leg strength. But my upper body needs work! Do you have any idea how much wrist strength (yes – WRISTS) gymnasts have?
We’ve scheduled our second lesson for next week – more to follow! I’m sure I’ll be grand jete-ing on a six foot balance beam in no time!
