3 classes, no ball today. I think they're easing us into it. Tomorrow we add a class and start the balls.
My right foot is still bugging me, but it wasn't as bad as last night. My current theory is that I just tired out an inner muscle over the weekend or something and it just needs to rest and stretch out. I can give it the latter, and a bit of the former. But it wasn't bad dancing on it today in (relatively light) classes. And it feels weird even not in the shoes, or in other shoes, so I no longer think it was the shoes.( Details follow... )
Checked in, etc. Locked myself out of my room (with key in hand, just couldn't get it to unlock. Dorm mommy managed to help me back in.
Everybody is incredibly friendly. It's just like a con; hall conversations happen all the time.
Something funky is going on with either my foot or my new shoes. It feels as though they're too narrow in the toe, but these are wides. I'm pretty confident they're the right size, except that when I wear them I feel this pressure on my two smallest toes, which, at least tonight, translated into discomfort dancing and eventually pain. Not severe, just worrying. I don't know what's going on; I'm beginning to be concerned it's something weird in the shape of my foot. Just the right foot.
As a result, I only danced a few one-steps, the mixer, and the one quadrille figure tonight at the Welcome Dance. It would have been nice to have gotten more dancing in, but I was worrying about my foot. I really hope this clears up tommorow, as I have a lot of dancing to do in the next five days.
