Today my negatives, floor prep and frogger looked so good. Such alignment! Line work was weak as usual. No luck with alignment there for some reason. Ugh. Splits were a little high. 😦 Gonna have to go harder next time.

The handspring clinic was good. I basically took the two hours to figure out what I was doing wrong and realize that I can in fact do it if I just get over my fear. My goal is to perfect front handspring, conquer back handspring, back and front limber/walkover and possibly a front aerial. And obviously the handstand press. I think I would be happy for life. Oh, and possibly the l-sit, but I kind of already can do that and I don’t really need a gym to practice it.
