So the pull ups were really great today! I finally feel like my body is listening to me on this exercise!!! First round I made it to 6 consecutive fully extended pull ups! The leg raises were a lot less horrible this time as well. My knees still want to bend a little, but I feel stronger! The horizontal pulls are still hard, and they definitely let me know I need to take the 1-2 minutes between sets.

Anyway, I definitely want to start yoga and tumbling this month!
