Sigh. C was sick most of this week and last night I felt it starting for me at the back of my throat. The recipe for wellness? Superdoses of Vit C, sleep, warmth and fluids. That's what needs to happen. I hope I'm sick all weekend and better for work on Monday. Wish me luck.

I'm trying to understand and rekindle my relationship with my body. After that weekend I spent down town walking around: the rally, the flash mob, the women's march and my subsequent uncomfortable and sharp jump down from a low rise my right knee has been painful. I skipped ballet thinking that that would definately be an aggravator and then went to tap on thursday. Saturday my knee hurt so I limped around in pain for most of the day. Sunday - all gone. Better. I went to ballet on Tuesday and felt great. Went to tap on thursday and there it was *twinge* the knee. Tap is the only dancing that I do *in shoes* maybe the assertions that my massage therapist made about flat feet and arch support has some kinda sense.

So I've decided. I think I have another 10 solid years of pain free dance in me (barring dance related injury) but I really need to see some sort of practictioner who will look at my feet, my knees, my legs, my hips and tell me what I need to proactively do to keep those strong, straight legs in tip top dance condition. I'm thinking my chiropractor is a good place to start but aside from that I don't know who else would be willing to join me on my misison of proactive joint health . A massage therapist? Doctor? Sports medicine Dr? Occupational therapist? Physiotherapist?

Well my dear - thanks to you, will say more about this next time we meet... I've been taking ballet and tap at Shadbolt which is super close to my house. Just started tap which I am rocking which means: I NOW HAVE TAP SHOES and some skills so if you wanna drop into a tap class somewhere I'd be SO game.
