I've taken a grand total of three classes thus far (two the first week, once last week), and BOY HOWDY am I out of shape. We've only been doing plié, tendu, dégagé, plus a little foot work and grand battement at the end (the other student in class is brand new to ballet, so the teacher spent a bit of time explaining things). My muscles are screaming, but I secretly enjoy that--I feel like I know I've actually been doing work.
|All the PT stuff.|
Luckily, neither are especially worried--the pain under/near my incision is normal and will go away with time (its also common because they "chomped" the bone there, yum!); the other is my good 'ole peroneal tendon being grumpy because of lack of strength/scar tissue. I'll start focusing more on getting those strong again at PT, and am now the proud owner of some lateral heel wedges for my sneakers (sexy!) which helps ease the pressure on that muscle/tendon during my everyday life.
