flavio and the cramps (not those)

Preparing my only gig of the summer, working on the pieces I want to play then. Some of it is of an extremely high level of technical difficulty or intricacy. Then yesterday whilst practising in Hampstead Heath (it was a lovely afternoon and it felt like a waste of a day to spend it practising indoors) I got the most horrid cramp in my left hand, something that had never happened to me. It took a couple of minutes before I could use my hand at all, it had sort of coiled in and had pain from the forearm.

Barring mroe occurrences of this sort of thing (and perhaps I should ask for medical advice) I'm looking forward to that first minute on stage when I ask myself why oh why I put myself in that situation....

I'm on Dreamwidth at http://flaviomatani.dreamwidth.org/ -do follow me there if you can.
