I just started using your calendars and workouts, and my abs are still sore from Wednesday! Its a good sore though. Thanks for putting all of these workouts up for use by others. Ive learned a lot of new exercises already (hooray google!) :D
Anonymous asked: How were you able to start pointe after only a year of ballet? I'd like to work up to that too!
I got lucky. Really, that’s the main reason I got to start pointe so early, so much earlier than I would recommend for people. But I have strong and flexible ankles, a decent arch, a good instep, the passion for it, and a ballet/pointe teacher who believed in me. She pushed me, hard, but it meant I progressed quite quickly.

Anonymous asked: What are the ballet physique videos?
Don’t worry, I’ll have a full review posted in a couple days! :)
Finally trying Amped Up by The Ballet Physique!
I just attempted my first-ever proper toe rise and every last one of my toes cracked. This must be what heaven feels like.
I was going to try one of my Ballet Physique videos tonight at the gym, but a couple bros took the speaker out of the mirrored room (which there’s a sign telling you not to do) are are blaring loud music (which is just rude, especially since there are like five other people here). Ugh.
Depending on where and when your triathlon is, you may need a wetsuit. I never knew there was a right and wrong way to put one, I thought you just struggle through it, get it on and you’re good to go. I was wrong. Last night at my tri team swim practice our coaches gave us a demonstration, good to know! Here’s a pic from my first triathlon and my first attempt at putting on a wetsuit-hilarious.
And HERE is the correct way to put on a wetsuit (from blueseventy):
That looks more difficult than I could ever manage. Can’t I just dip my body in liquid latex and be off? :P

Is she benching in the squat rack? You’re going to make the gym bros mad!
Nope, on the Smith machine. And I even made sure no one was going to need it so I could spend extra time with her since she’d never benched before. I am a big fan of gym etiquette. :)
