"Dancing with your feet is one thing, but dancing with your heart is another"
I am a 18 year old open championship irish dancer from the Mid America Region. I am currently 44th in the nation. I've been dancing for 10 years. I love Irish dancing more than anything else in the world. Feel free to ask questions about anything. Irish dance is my passion and I promise always to have answers.
Montreal is gonna be rollin in the dough
CANADA TURN UPPPPP
plus all the skin ripped off the bottom of my foot…..no joke….sorry I’m gross….I can barely walk lololol
30 seconds of walking
2 min jog/run
1 min sprint
Repeat 5x (no breaks)
I do this on a treadmill at 0 incline. I tried it outside before but it was really hard to keep track of the time. This is perfect for stamina building. It challenges your body so you don’t know what is coming next. At the speed I do it it’s 2 almost 3 miles and it takes less than 18min!! Here are the levels I do mine at…I would not recommend this on the first try…it took me weeks to build up to this point…it’s harder than it looks. The goal is to have a faster sprint round and more of them:
I got several concerned anon comments after I posted my training schedule and i thought this needed to be addressed. Yes it is a lot. Yes I still go to all my classes, do my homework, and keep up decent grades, and am an active member in my sorority. I give myself one rest day a week where all I do is lay in bed. I am doing this to get where I want to be which is a world qualifier. I have been told that I have potential but I have never applied myself enough until now. I’m not going to have many more chances to prove anyone who said I couldn’t do this wrong (trust me there have been countless). I want to give this my all.
I hope this puts any fears to rest. I am working myself hard but I do know my limits. I had a much lighter training schedule over easter weekend. Tuesdays are my rest day (today). I’M NOT CRAZY I JUST REALLY WANT THIS!!!
