I have a dance class tonight and I am enormously nervous about it. It should be fun - the teacher is a friend who is an absolute hoot, and it's a yoga/belly-dancing fusion class thingy. But not only am I woefully, woefully out of shape, I also have really danced since I hurt my back. That's 14 years ago now. (And I don't really count the dancing I did for the production of My Fair Lady - that was all slow waltzing, even if they did spring high heels on me at the dress rehearsal. [I'd never even really walked in high heels, let alone danced in them!])

I'm afraid I won't be able to do it, that I'll realize halfway through that I'm doing dreadful things to my back and that I'm simply not capable of this kind of thing anymore.

I don't mind some pain - there ought to be some good, sweaty, hurt going on, but I'm afraid that I'll discover I can't do the work without crippling myself for a week.

That might make me cry.
