Recommended Posts

More to come here as I actually think of it over this week.

High points:

  • 1st silks performance on 10/11
    • Need:
      • finish choreography, smooth out transitions between moves.
      • hair/costume/makeup plan
    • Have:
      • song
      • choreography outline
      • intermittent minor freak outs.
  • Hand/finger joint pain/strengthening
    • Continue previous happy hands routine
    • Theraputty! I bought some of this stuff to help with hand strength. It should arrive today or tomorrow. Hopefully I've ordered the correct resistance. I like this list of exercises

  • Last week or so of the challenge (after the performance, thankfully) I'll be at a conference for work, so I'll need a plan for that.

Can't wait to see this! :D

 

I'm sure you've written it down somewhere, but what's your happy hand routine?

I use this http://www.health.harvard.edu/healthbeat/5-exercises-to-improve-hand-mobility-and-reduce-pain

Seems to help. The TheraPutty will hopefully strengthen tendons and joints more so than these non-resistance exercises. (which have been great so far and I'll keep doing for rehab/prehab.)

yoink!

 

 

 

How is Destiny?!

Destiny is pretty good. I have confirmed multiple times that PvP is not for me as I get too frustrated being cannon fodder. The rest is good, strikes are HARD and the story is a bit meh so far, but I keep wanting to play it so that says something.

 

This looks awesome! Excited to see how your performance goes.

Thanks! I'll be putting in some extra practice hours to make sure I don't make a fool of myself.

Nice challenge! Can't wait to see the video of your performance. ;)

 

The TheraPutty looks pretty cool. I'm looking forward to seeing how it works for you, I definitely need to improve my grip strength. Does it help with wrist mobility at all?

You and my mom, both. :) There will be video for sure.

 

I haven't looked into TheraPutty for wrist issues. I imagine, depending on the exercises you use, you could use it for that, but there may be more effective things to try for wrist health.

I haven't even dipped into the multiplayer yet. If it is like Halo I will not be very good, but have loads of fun driving all the vehicles and throwing grenades all willy nilly.

 

What system are you playing on? I'm playing PS4. If you ever need someone to do co-opy things with just send me a PM or a raven... whichever works for you.

I'm a time traveler, but I can only go one way and only a second at a time.

Hubs and I are on PS4, too! So far, our third for strikes has just been randoms. Might be nice to have an actual person that I know, instead. 

 

Multiplayer = sylph getting shot in the head unawares every 20 seconds. Seriously, my K/D is like 0.3 or something.

 

Eeeeeeee, this is my dream!  Subbing for silks!  I want to do this so bad.

 

(I want to see a video of this routine!)

Get all healed up, then get thee to an aerial class! :)

 

Your performance sounds amazing! I too shall wait with bated breath for video ;)

Thanks! I'm hoping for amazing. I will settle for not-embarrassing.

 

Thanks for the routine, I'll make sure to try it out sometime!

You're welcome. I feel like it's helped me quite a bit.

 

 

TheraPutty came yesterday. I got 4 oz, which is a nice big ball of it and fills my hand for squeezing pretty well. I was worrie dit wouldn't be enough, but if anything it might be slightly much. Way better than too little, for sure.

 

It's essentially Silly Putty,(just more of it) but you can get it in different resistances. The red putty I've got is "medium" which seems mostly appropriate? I played around with it last night a bit. I'm going to drop it in  my briefcase to bring to work since that seems to be where I remember to do hand exercises.

I would totally shoot all the aliens with you. Seems like this game is meant to be played co-op. It's awesome that you and your husband play together. I play with my partner, but she is not the best at shooters and it makes her frustrated. She'd rather slash at things with a sword or jump on top of enemies heads.

 

Putting theraputty on my Amazon wishlist. I'll be interested to see how it works for you.

I am not super great at shooters, but as long as it's not PvP where I'm up against twitchy 15 year olds jacked up on Mt. Dew and Red Bull, I don't tend to get frustrated. :)

 

Apparently you can't add friends from the web. (How dumb!) I'll add you when I get home, though.

Also, I'm loving this song.

 

I should totally do my next routine to this.

 

With which, I've just realized that I'm already planning a next routine. heh.

 

That's how it starts :P

 

Also going to take a look at the putty.  I need to work on my grip for Pole since I keep slipping on inverts.

*frantic waving* Hiiiii! :D

 

I debated for awhile between the putty or a squeeze ball thing or a traditional grip trainer. I decided that the putty was the most versatile to get grip, individual fingers/thumb and also training hand extension to help balance things out a bit.

Silly putty but lots does sound fun! I wonder how it will work out for you.

We'll see! It's fun and it tires out my hands/fingers so that has to mean something, right?

It's so so perfect for an aerial routine.

 

And yes, that seems to be the case.

Fatigue means it's doing something, I'd say! Best kind of work is the work that feels like play, as we alllll know.

 

Performance is soooon. I'm so stoked for you. :)
