day 1909 – webbing drills

stayed well after class to practice because i want my websters. it was the perfect time to drill them because i was able to receive some valuable pointers. i was drilling and drilling them into the foam pit; long enough past dinner and in time for late night matsuyama with the gang. i keep wanting to hit the open gym times, but it’s always difficult on weekdays with my early morning starts

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 Рhandspring 

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

day 1773 – take flight

the day didn’t start off well. i packed everything in the morning, everything i needed for the day except for my purse. even though the day started off on the wrong foot, it ended fairly well. officially taken flight to be a part of this club. it was on my small, medium, larrge list and now i’ve taken steps forward. back on the floor to work on things i want to learn and even of things i never heard of. it’s now a priority so i’ll make time to be here, but i’ll keep in mind that flipping and hockey on the same day isn’t a great idea

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 926 – deadpool me

occupying myself with timeplay and patiently waiting for deadpool to begin. i am usually not a big enough movie fan to watch blockbuster movies on premier day, but couldn’t turn down the avx tickets offer. don’t want to spoil it for everyone else. all i’m going to say is it’s a good movie and i loved ryan reynold’s tricking moves and secretly wished i could learn some of them, but i was not expecting it to be so gory
