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.
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!
