It’s been a while, yeah?
Life has gotten kind of crazy, what with the search for a second job, a new place to live, being out of classes for the summer, studying my brains out for the FSOT that I take in 10 days.
Insanity at it’s finest.

Conditioning and whatnot has been sparse as of late. My shoulders always feel like they are getting stronger, then one day I will be spotting a girl on bars and they will just stop functioning. It has put a damper on my progress, which is incredibly frustrating.
I haven’t done any serious conditioning, stretching or anything in the past week or so. I know it is horrible and it is not the right step on the path to what I hope will be a trip to the Olympic Games in my future, but it was something that needed to be done. I am old enough and aware enough of my body that I know when I need to back off and when I can give 110%. It was time to back off. I need to get my shoulders healthy before I start anything else.
There has also been the issue of the urge to tumble. I haven’t started tumbling yet because I am nowhere near where I need to be (physically) to do so. But I often get the urge when I see others tumbling, or when I am coaching tumbling classes.
This, too, shall pass.
I’ve nominated June 6th as the day to make my push back in to conditioning and training. By then, it will have been three weeks out of regular conditioning. It is going to suck. A lot. It will hurt and I will probably complain about it quite a bit, but I want it more than anything.
Here goes nothing.
