Lopsided

Wednesday, 16 February 2005

I know that most people have a stronger side to their bodies, but it has taken me quite a while to finally concede that this applies to myself as well. Last night I was trying out a new move at class, the [s-dobrado][s]. Kicking up my right leg was miles easier than doing the same for my left (okay, granted that I’ve pulled a muscle that makes lifting that leg rather difficult at the moment). At least I had some semblance of coordination for my right side! Looking forward to pinning down that move–I think it’s a particularly lovely, graceful one when executed well.

Plus, I noticed that when we get down to doing push-ups, my right arm doesn’t seem to want to flex as far as my left–does that mean it’s weaker? I get the distinct impression that I’m imbalanced, but I can’t tell what’s wrong.

Hehe…well, so long as we don’t end up looking like fiddler crabs. One arm/leg so much larger and stronger than the other!
