Back at Pilates

William James famously wrote that we learn to ice skate in the summer and bicycle during the winter, meaning that the acquisition of skills is facilitated by fallow times. I’ve now had a 3-month break from Pilates, with today my first session back.

Some strength has been lost, as I would expect. That will return. Also some flexibility is gone—the tops of my ankles are less flexible now. But, on the whole, it felt good and I felt I could often respond correctly to the instructor’s directions. The studio is a 10-minute walk, and the return is uphill, all to the good.

I’m extremely happy to be back at it.
