I am achieving the goals I set for myself at the beginning of year. It seems changing my diet has also contributed to building muscle and strength. I can check off titanic, aerial shoulder mount and ayesha! Those are 3 big ones that I’m so proud of. And I got my nemesis…handspring! After 3 years of frustration and thinking that it will never happen, it finally did happen. I did exactly what I planned, I left handspring for a bit, got some other tricks, and then returned to handspring with renewed determination. The first time I did a successful handspring at SASS, all the girls cheered, as they know how hard I’ve been working on it. It felt so good. In silks, my aerial inverts are getting much stronger.
All the hard work is finally paying off. I have finally got past the fear of trying new pole tricks and have had fun learning new things again. I now can do headstands and getting close to handstands. My love for pole has returned. I’m spending 10-15 hours a week training between pole, silks and other workouts.
Last on my list is brass monkey! I will conquer.
