After last night’s Cirque Fit and subsequent extra workout, I was pumped for tonight’s aerial silks class! While there may be a lot of moves I cannot yet do because I am either thinking too hard when trying to do them, or I just don’t have the strength yet, there ARE moves that I am able to do…and those are what keep me going. For me, my successes outweigh my “failures” (if you want to call them that… maybe I can just say “failed attempts that have not materialized into successful moves yet”), and that is HUGE.
A year ago, I never would have imagined that I would even attempt what I am doing. Circus moves…me? Really??
Well, guess what!! HELL, YES!! I am trying, and I am going to KEEP trying till I get it!! And I DID learning something new tonight!
Woo Hoo!! I may not be able to get into a ball position yet, but I managed to do an inverted stag!!!
Ok…here I am just flipping back for the first time, preparing to get the leg up in the air…
And I did it!!
What I need to do to improve the move is to grab down lower on the silks, and then arch my back more, bringing that leg higher. But for a first try…pffft! I am upside down, and I am happy with that!!!
And my arms are killing me right now…time for a bit of ice and rest.
OHHHH… AND I did a roll up all by myself, and I know that Will didn’t help because he was across the room!! AND I ROLLED OUT OF IT SMOOTHLY!!!!! No falling and no face plants! 🙂
I can’t type anymore tonight… even my hands hurt. But I am feeling GREAT about what we have been able to accomplish so far!!!!!!
