First post-Covid morris practice. Been a year and a half since the last time we were together.
New hall, several of the team still avoiding meeting people indoors, so a lot different.
But we had a blast!
It's good to remember why I do morris - and here's the answer - Dancing makes you feel alive. Playing music with other people makes you feel alive.Dancing as a team to music played by your friends? Beyond price.
Charging down the hall with my friend Paul, both of us doing giant step hops - I felt myself again.
(Most of the team still have major fitness issues to recover from, but Paul and I were in pretty good shape)
This is the first time I've held out for a proper ten minute warm up - and it certainly paid off for me at least. And a proper cool-down. No aches or pains today, and I was moving really freely yesterday in spite of a lingering problem with my Achilles tendon/calf muscle.This entry was originally posted on Dreamwidth where it has comments.
