Last lessons before the competition are done!
Today was about putting together last minute pieces to the smooth VW and ironing out a few ‘odd spots’ that creeped up in some of the routines as we were running them today.
I feel very good about where I am right now. Will the routines go perfect and be as strong as possible? No, I don’t expect that, but I do know that the routines will go as well as they can and I will be dancing them instead of just trying to ‘get through’ them.
I realized earlier this week that I am actually quite proud of myself for making the health decisions I did last month that ultimately led to me getting back to being ‘myself’. Because of that, for the last month I have been able to train better and harder than I have been able to in over 2 years, and the difference is incredible.
On top of that, I am right ‘on target’ with my studying for the week, and aside from a break to get the mandatory mani/pedi for the comp, I should be able to finish up all the work for this week before we leave, leaving me able to relax some and perhaps even get a ‘jump’ on next week’s work over the weekend.
I have one of my dresses back and ready to go, and the other 2 should be ready by noon tomorrow. I know my dressmaker has been working constantly to get all the stoning done and what I saw of the dresses tonight look absolutely fabulous. I can’t wait to wear them and sparkle all over the floor.
I got the instructions/demonstration for doing my hair today and it kept itself up all day through 2 intense lessons, acupuncture and a lot of sweat. That’s promising 🙂
I hope everything goes as expected tomorrow, and plan to just enjoy the experience competing this weekend.
After all, I have already won–I am able to dance again!
