Whew, I had one crazy weekend! Saturday was the grand re-opening of the parkour gym which moved to a much bigger location so I spent almost the whole day there, hanging out and did 3 1/2 hours of class. It was work! I started w/ trapeze, did a regular parkour class, a 35+ parkour class and then yoga. Last week was such a breakthrough for me in parkour! I learned those two vaults on Wednesday and then Saturday did the underbar.
The vault we jumped over we up to my chest. It was to everyone else's hips but I'm that short. The class was packed and what helped was there were other women in the class who did it. Otherwise, I normally don't try moves like that. So, as my son has been telling me all along, I have the ability to do it but I have been choosing not to try. I thought I'd run yesterday but decided my body needed the rest. Today I'm going to zumba for the first time since November and then aerial silks at night. They have this quote painted on the wall at the parkour gym and the owner said she thinks of me when she reads the quote. "We don't stop playing because we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing." It's so true! What I loved about hanging out in the gym was all the people just playing. They were jumping over vaults, into the foam pit, climbing on the rails. It's people moving the way we're supposed to be moving!
