My head is just swimming with options this time of year and the fitness ADD is kicking in something fierce. However, I am scheduled to compete on February 20, February 27, and March 5 which means I need to make sure I keep focused on my gymnastics priorities even while I am slowly starting to resume other activities. Goal 1. Equal Opportunity Eventing -Vault at 5 practices -Beam routines every practice, including flight elements -Flyways at 5 practices It is easy to just focus on the skills I really want to focus on and not put finishing touches on the things that do need a lot more work. The return to vaulting means I should really fix my approach/pre-flight. I also have pauses before my flyaway in my bar routine which is a SIGNIFICANT deduction and one I shouldn't really be giving up. More practice/repetition should help me feel more comfortable going right into the flyaway without a pause so I won't lose those precious tenths. Goal 2. HAIL, SWOLESISTER. -6 workouts that include weighted back squats and deadlifts My PT said I can so damn it, I will! I don't have a lot of free space in my schedule this month to make it out to the climbing gym and get on the weights train, so 6x before Feb. 26 may be the best I can manage. Going six times is six times better than I've been able to in ages. Goal 3. Core for the Core God -20 core workouts, with core-focused PT exercises also counting towards this goal. Increasing my lower core strength and overall core control will do so much for making sure I continue to progress with my lower back and prevent it from troubling me again in the future. These are clutch to keep my body on my side. Goal 4. Shiny Metal -Reach empty, clean sink status 8x My kitchen is messy. Maybe that is preventing me from getting my food prep groove on. This may seem like a very low number for the number of days we have, but a totally empty sink is such a rare thing in my life right now.
