I feel like it's pretty typical! Lifting T, W, & F plus gymnastics Th & Sat. I might throw in some conditioning on Sunday 🤢 because my stamina at practice last night was so bad. My social cal is kind of light this week and that's probably a good thing.
Ok, well, I hadn't gone to practice since the mock meet on 1/11, so it was close to 2 weeks sans gymnastics when I got there last night. Weirdly enough, it didn't feel like it had been very long at all, while other times when I miss one practice, it feels like eons. Floor warm-ups all felt pretty good, but I was determined to keep the back handspring trend alive, so I spent a lot of practice on balance beam. I did all of my normal routine skills, including a WHOLE LOT of front walkovers attempting to connect to round-offs. They just were not going well, so I am going to add in some drills on the sit-up part of the walkover because I think I'm coming up a little crooked and/or not using my fucking abs at all SOMEHOW. 🤷♀️
Once all of that was set though, I had no more reasons not to work on my handsprings, so I did 3 on the low beam and then moved right to the high beam. My first two were kind of just "please don't die" attempts that didn't stay on the beam, but then I landed 2 perfectly. 🎊 I then did a routine with everything in it and landed that one on the beam too. We're going places, people. After that, I went to uneven bars which was wholly mediocre, but that's okay.
I went home, made fried rice, and finished watching the first episode of Cheer. 👍
