Well I just thought I would share with you some of my new skills.... lol, it will be nice to tell people who actually know what I am talking about! When I tell my mum she just looks at me and says "is that good?" or "what's that again" lol...

so anyway

bars: I did flyaway 1/2 twist for the first time tonight!! I have not even done flyaways for about 6 years because I was so scared of them. I finally decided this year that enough was enough and I was going to do them.... and I did! tonight my coach said I was ready to twist them.... and I did!! :D

beam: backsaults!! I did them tonight for the first time on low beam with no extra mats on the sides (and just one draped over the beam so I wouldn't hurt my feet).... My coach said I can do them on the high beam next training session!! :D

floor: layout 1/2.... lol not that exciting but I am rather "twisting impaired" so it is a bit of an achievement for me! I did them last year but they were a bit yuck and I have been putting off doing the this year 'cos they scare me a bit, so I am glad I finally did them and that they look pretty ok :D

lol, thanks for reading :) :p

congrats! i know what you mean with the whole non-gymnasts not getting it thing. my parents and people at school never know what i'm talking about :D it's very frustrating to learn something big and being super excited about it
but having nobody outside of the gym understand how major it is. but anyway, good job! :]
