  1. I'm impressed myself, I think they are the best I've ever done outside ---------- Had a session which wasn't really fun at first when I was drilling slanted back handsprings, but then became much more fun when I started trying random things. Mostly tricking type stuff, but I can't actually trick so it probably just looked like I was flailing around. Which I was. But it was fun. Couldn't finish an issue of Scientific American but I put a dent in it. https://www.instagram.com/p/Ci_ftDKjza5/
  2. Thanks! ------ One of my diving sessions turned into a parkour session because the pool was closed, and it was a nice change. Also played some basketball this week, and read most of the September issue of Scientific American. https://www.instagram.com/p/Cinhk-tjof3/
  3. Besides staff spinning, diving, and tricking, not sure. Juggling? Martial arts? Cooking? Singing? As long as it's interesting to me, it should work
  4. One of the things I enjoy most about parkour and freerunning is the mental aspect, like problem solving/dealing with fear, etc. With flipping, I sometimes just need to put in reps, which lacks the mental aspect and can get boring. Pursuing other things like staff spinning, diving, tricking, etc can keep my mind working and makes my life more interesting. Main quest Keep it fresh Side quest Read one issue of Scientific American a week
  5. A bit of everything this week. Gym days, flips, staff spinning, diving, I did my first gainers off a diving board. Main quests -Enjoy summer - Done -Pass a driving test - Done https://www.instagram.com/p/CiGFqvBjsWG/
  6. It was more on the conditioning side this week, like gym days and run days. Still got some flips in though, on land and off the diving board. https://www.instagram.com/p/ChvriDAj_O8/
  7. I passed my driving test and landed backflips off the bouncy ball into sand. MAXIMUM SUMMER ENJOYMENT https://www.instagram.com/p/ChfdcVeDrGh/ https://www.instagram.com/p/ChfdkpjjHHO/
  8. I don't miss it, I would much rather train outside. Why adductors? Were you spamming an adductor heavy move? No rush, fall and winter have their own perks. Great duet by the way, I was smiling the whole time -------- My idea of enjoying summer includes jumping around outdoors, which I did pretty much everyday. Also a lot of staff spinning, which I didn't film. https://www.instagram.com/p/Cg7LFSLjTXP/
  9. I banned myself from the trampoline park. I'm hoping that this, along with conditioning/strength training, will fix whatever is going on with my knees. Main quests -Enjoy summer -Pass a driving test
  10. One day kinda off (basketball), six on, one kinda off (swim). Forgot to include in last week's update that I failed my driving test. Boo. Not sure if I learned anything about braking during this challenge. I like the more fluid format where I can choose when to rest instead of having a set rest day. At the same time it makes me more prone to having less full-rest days. https://www.instagram.com/p/CgYPXfdD8CG/
  11. I think the extra rest just makes me go extra hard on non-rest days ------- Four days on, one kinda off (staff spinning), one on. https://www.instagram.com/p/CgE_XqKDGC0/
  12. Two days on, one off, three on, today off. Right knee has some swelling so might need to take it easy. https://www.instagram.com/p/Cfz8fjGDbYs/
  13. Five days on, today off. I did my best to hit the brake at the end of each day to get enough sleep. https://www.instagram.com/p/CfhN4YMD04S/
  14. Thanks, I'll need it Yes, it was sustainable. I didn't go at 100% intensity for the 6 days so it wasn't brutal --------------- One fail (sort of) and one successful brake this week. The fail was during tricking class, they said we were doing flips. One of my tibs wasn't able to handle the impact from punching off the spring floor, so I should have bowed out. But on the other hand it got me doing tib rehab more seriously. The win was two days later when I recognized that I needed to rest and did some gardening instead of a half assed training session. https://www.instagram.com/p/CfRmf_Xjw6Q/
