I really admire your ability to try, succeed, fail, and then get back up and keep trying, all while showing off your progress along the way. You are so resilient. 💜

Agree with above. Your persistence is amazing, and I have no doubt it will pay off in the end. 

 

Thanks. I don't mind giving up, but considering the short recovery time from the fails and how much time I still have left in the challenge, it didn't make sense not to continue.

I tried going over sideways but it didn't work. So now I'm just doing other flips on the crash mat, and backflips only at the beach, and with a spotter. I need to at least do them on my own on sand if there's any hope of doing one on grass.

Spoiler

I swung my arm weirdly jumping off a skateboard yesterday, and felt my shoulder dislocate and relocate immediately. I've been skipping physio lately so that's probably why. Anyway, I don't think its a good idea to be swinging my arms around anytime soon, as I'm still recovering. I'll call it quits for the backflip quest.

 

Main quests

Do a backflip on grass by the end of the challenge - FAILED

Run 2X a week - CANCELLED until my shoulder recovers enough

Maintain leg strength: Leg day 2X a week

Shoulder physio: Face pulls, band external rotations, band pull aparts and band overhead pull aparts, at least 2X a week when my shoulder recovers enough

OW. Good call on taking it easy. That's..... ouch. Maybe time to put physio back into a challenge...

This hurt me to read. I've heard dislocating your shoulder is extremely painful... has it happened to you before?

 

I agree with the others on the rehab thing. That kind of thing only gets worse over time without rehab, though I'd dearly love to find a way not to have to do my own. ☹️

It's already been a part of my challenge, I just need to actually do it.

Yikes!  I think focusing on shoulder rehab sounds like a solid strategy right now

 

It's not as bad as I made it sound, but yeah I'll be doing rehab for sure

I should have used a spoiler, sorry! It's happened once before, and yeah it hurt. It didn't hurt too bad this time though, the shoulder just felt weak afterwards, and in certain movements/positions. I remember all the stuff the physiotherapist told me to do last time, so I'm just doing that.

I picked up a small kids trampoline thingy from the trash a while back but it was missing its legs.

 

 

New side quest: build a base for the trampoline!

And I made some progress on the trampoline base. It looks like a transmutation circle hehe

 

If it starts glowing or talking to you, just run. :) Looks good though, definitely solid and trustworthy. Glad you're feeling better already, too!
