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 1766 – trickery

i took a huge step out of my comfort zone and stepped back onto the spring floor for the first time in nearly two years. the plan is to get back into gymnastics and not only pick up where i left off, but to pick up even more things to add to my repertoire. i’m so stoked i got a chance to be spotted to go head over heels on my first day back. it was definitely a not a natural feeling after not having gone head over heels in some time. i wonder how long it’ll take me to get back landing this flip without a spotter. i have a lot i want to learn, so no doubt i’ll be pushing myself

day 1402 – going for it


i most certainly don’t make the best choices when it comes to precautionary circumstances, but i went for it anyways. i’m stoked that i just went triple digit and made my bench pr. benching has always been my weakest major lift; for that reason, i avoid it. i’m told that with my athleticism, i should be able to bench at least my bodyweight; i sneered every time i’m told because i know that’s too much to ask of me. after today, my goal towards bodyweight may not be unachievable after all. thanks for always reminding me it’s a must – you had more belief in me than i ever had

day 1058 – tumbletrak

i haven’t posted one of flipping for a long time; that’s because i haven’t been flipping for a quite a while. on the tumble trak combining two moves together to make a combo for very the first time. finally feeling confident enough to try this and it was nerve wrecking, but the spotter was there so i don’t kill myself. with this attempt, i am one step closer to nailing the combo
