La_Bailarina Posted July 28, 2004 Report Share Posted July 28, 2004 I'm currently at my SI and my teacher noticed today that I am sitting in my shoes. I had this habit in the past but after lots of work, I rid myself of it about a year ago and now all of the sudden its back. I recently switched to a harder shank in my shoes to help prolong their lives but they don't feel much harder (except for the boxes) so I don't think that this is the cause. I have noticed that my ankles have been feeling kind of out of whack since I've been here (Monday of this week); my achilles feel tighter than usual (but I noticed that around mid May as well but it seemed to go away) and the insides of my ankle along the tendon are rather sore after class but the soreness goes away with ice. I'm wondering why all of the sudden, after so long of not doing it, I have started to sit in my shoes and if my ankles acting whacky may have anything to do with it. I'll talk to the teacher the next time I have her for pointe (Friday) and ask what she thinks of the situation. In the meantime, have any ideas? Quote Link to comment
