Many goals!

Valentine Dreamer Annika SlabyHey everybody! Summer is almost over… and time for ballet to start. Yay!! I have made a goal with myself that I would stretch every single day and everyday this month (August) I get a sticker on my calendar for a reward, but really, flexibility is the best reward. Plus, I am doing yoga and pilates every day. I do yoga to help my flexibility and pilates to strengthen my core. I am also trying to make my feet stronger by flexing and pointing my feet.

I can feel and see the differences, but I do NOT want to get tendonitis. That is when the muscle that connects your ankle to your hamstrings (it hurts a LOT!) especially when you pointe your foot really hard and you don’t stretch it out. So, I’m very determined to get very flexible and strong by the time ballet starts.

Ta ta for now…. Love,
