Big Exciting News!


OK, not too big and exciting, but I’d just like to say that my flips are getting better. This is very exciting.
No, I cannot do a standing back tuck like the girl in the picture. I doubt I’ll ever be able to a standing back tuck, except possibly on the trampoline. Really, if I eventually learn to do a ro bhs back tuck on the tumble track I’ll be thrilled.
But my front tumbling is getting there. I can do a front tuck off the double mini and land on my feet on the big fluffy mat, although I immediately fall down. I can do a front tuck on the trampoline and land on my feet for a millisecond before the great collapse. And I can do it off the end of the tumble track and land on the mat kinda sorta on my feet.
Progress!
My round offs are getting better too, more momentum, although I definitely need to work on those. I basically need a gym in my house, or at least closer than Gaithersburg!
