With the girls competing this weekend, I didn't have a ton of time to get into the gym so today was my only real chance to practice. I didn't realize how tired I'd be just from standing (and stressing out) for their whole meet, but I did get some stuff done. I mainly worked on choreo for my floor routine - which wow, do I need to build up my endurance or what? I also did some bar work - front giant on high bar was much scarier than anticipated but now that I've done it once, I got it. Also built up the mats to get some release work in.
Here's a straddle back - you should have seen my first attempts! They got a bit better at the end.
And here's a Pak salto. I competed this for my last season as a Level 10 competitive gymnast and I swear I touched my feet on the catch at every single meet. In fact, at State, my coach Lisa said she'd give me a puppy if I didn't touch my feet and against all odds, I didn't touch my feet. Lisa, you owe me a puppy. :) At any rate, it's a big goal of mine to be able to compete a Pak in my routine and NEVER touch my feet at a competition.
