40 minutes Pozzoli. Do not flap hands to relax them! Thumb joints cannot handle that. Tendons seem to be able to handle octaves. Learn a piece? Do I dare actually try to practice something to get it to playing condition? Won't that just jinx me? Rrrrr...

Tendons hurt in wrist area today. Could be from practicing, but more likely from whirlwind cleaning of the kitchen this morning. And Iron Man 2 tonight so no practicing.

ETA: I had time so played 30 minutes Bochsa and La Dispute. No hand problems to speak of. Weird.

40 min of Bochsa. Went swimmingly until I was reminded I have minimal callouses after not playing very much for 2 months. 4th finger on wires strings, owie.

20 min of Lariviere. Still need to concentrate on pinkies. Played Bochsa 'thirds' exercise. And tried to play La Dispute, but my hands were stiff. Then realized it was probably because the room is freezing because I don't have a HEATER anymore. But right wrist got sore towards end of alternating octaves.

It helps to read through old entries. :)
