My last session with Nina felt victorious. I was back to a green band and doing lots o’ reps. Plus she started me on some brand spankin’ new moves. As in previous sessions, I kept breaking into uncontrollable grins, as I accessed parts of my body that had been asleep for years and years.
I love it when I internally touch upon a place that is really weak — knowing, of course, that I’m working with someone who has got my back in terms of safety and knowledge. And yet, I can also feel ridiculous, like, “OMG you are fucking kidding me.”
I had both reactions during the new routines Nina had me do. In one of them, for example, I stepped on a one end of a yellow band, then raised the other end with my arm. Here’s hor far I could raise it: As soon as the band gave one iota of tension, I was already in my pain zone and had to stop.
It was embarassing. But with someone like Nina, I was only encouraged. This woman is pure love, I tell ya. And together we’re gonna kick my ass and completely rebuild my body. Yeah!
