I’m not sure where the time went. It’s been 3 weeks since I last posted and it’s been crazy with two trips, my birthday, working, working out, teacher training, etc! April has been a crazy month. Now for updates:
I mentioned earlier that I’m Bibrave pro! What that means is I get some perks like the awesome tank and Procompression socks that came in the mail recently. (side note my Procompression socks and lightweight – unlike my other compression socks. I’m absolutely in LOVE with these).
The awesome thing about being a BibRave Pro is races! I’ll be checking out 3 race partners: St. Jude’s 15k in Ridgewood, NJ on 6/8, 8/9/14 Camp Chingachgook Half in Lake George and 8/17 Falmouth Road Race 7 miler in Cape Cod. Pretty excited since I’ve never raced in any of these locations before. Also, he Lake George and Cape Cod ones will be perfect summer time racecations.
2) New gear
I’ve already mentioned how amazing my Procompression socks are but I’ve been able to get some other new gear this month as well. For my birthday, I got an awesome present of Treadfast barre/grippy socks (thanks Nicole!). Treadfast offers two pairs of grippy socks – knee highs and thigh highs (I’m modeling the knee high “Tiffany” socks below). The best thing about these lightweight socks are how much better they are than regular ankle barre socks. These stay in place and are just so much more comfortable for barre.
Tonight I was successful in putting together my routine (finally). I’ve been randomly practicing in class in small groups which is fine but I don’t have control of the music in those situations but also I was caught by surprise each time we had to “teach” The purpose in those situations is to be able to talk and move at the same time (which is hard). I’m finding the “cue-ing” to the music to be hard but also the counting reps versus just speaking corrections during a timed piece. Tips anyone?
