Sunday Part Two: Learning curve

By Thursday, November 13, 2014 0 No tags Permalink 0

As with last week, this second Sunday went well, albeit with fewer particpants. I've been tired this week, and I was out with friends on Saturday night, but it still felt good to get up on Sunday morning and go to the Pilates studio. As is so often the case with any exercise, I felt better ...

I taught my first Pilates class at Pony Locale yesterday. I'm happy about it and I'm excited to do more teaching! I'm a bit hesitant to say that the class went well because it's not for me to decide. It went well if the participants all enjoyed it and felt good after the class. They ...

Granted, I thought this way ...

So I've published my e-book, Detour, and now I've got to get it out there. The summer isn't the best time to do this since people are on holidays, and not in front of their computers where they can see my tweets and Concussion Talk Facebook posts.
