day 2212 – maxi knee

slightly sprained my lcl as my chiropractor says, but he agreed i could tape it up to keep doing my things. taped it up in the morning to go with my gym attire because the team is doing a full morning of showroom cleanup. together with the sales director, the two of us did the heavy lifting, moving seven vanities with stone tops, many headboards and bedbases while the three others some boxes, linen and bubble wraps. at the end of the tricking session, i made some headway on my touch down raiz which was surprising because up to two days ago i still had no idea what i was doing. i hope to continue that and use it in a combo one day

day 2202 – tricking plan

i think i got myself a tricking plan to keep pushing forward. the assignment is simple: each session i must complete the required reps choosing three from the flips and three kicks on the checklist. this is meant to push me to develop and acquire new tricks while maintaining and improving my old tricks. it also forces me to practice the things i don’t necessarily enjoy but should sharpen. i can’t land any new tricks if i don’t spread my eggs in different baskets. i need to diversify my skillset

day 1785 – pvc roller

on the ground for hours icing and rolling myself out after feeling the pains of a pull. i hadn’t noticed any pain or spasm until i got home and adrenaline wore off. prior to that, i had gone to class to work on more combos, cheat seven twenties, cartwheels and back tucks. i was quite pleased with my stuff today especially getting a handful of back tuck practices in with less spot. i feel better about it and it’s just a matter of getting the confidence now to making it over with no hesitation. in the meantime, i’m doing everything possible to alleviate this pain sensation i’m feeling done my back; and an appointment is upcoming

day 1782 – vanishes

being exposed is the first step, learning is the second step and practicing is the next. learning about vanishes and working on those tornado kicks, eventually to link some combos together. all these drills further shows me how right dominant i have become; but then again, how often is anyone ambidextrous in tricking? going to classes has been really fun with a welcoming bunch and patient instructors. the next step is having the time and confidence to go to open gyms. what a workout today; i was already sweating as i sit and stretch

day 1778 – handspringĀ 

it was a rough day with so much fluttering through my mind and possibly a big decision oncoming. i few messages sent my way in the morning almost made me explode. i didn’t feel like going to flip after work, but i did anyway. wasn’t too bad with my first cracked at combos and crash course on front handsprings. i was, however, terrible at back tucks and didn’t bother doing anymore than three before i called it a day. i went home feeling quite disappointed and down. it’s just one of those off days that wasn’t meant to be, but i’ll come back clean and try again next time
