No Pain, No Gain?

Posted in strung out by annie on April 20, 2007

I got the bright idea today to schedule out my day carefully, using violin time as a reward (which it is, absolutely – at least for now, hopefully for a long time to come).  So I decided to start practice at noon – giving me an hour and a half to play before going to pick up the kid. Basically, I tripled my playing time between day 1 and day 2.

All I can say is “Ow.”

My finger tips – especially the index finger, left hand – feel like I’ve been typing on the Devil’s keyboard of FLAMES.  I have learned my lesson and will adjust practice time accordingly, at least until the callouses start to build up. I never thought I’d say this outside of pointe class back in my ballet days, but “Yay for callouses!”
