Training Update

I’ve just hit the four month mark since my surgery.  That said, I’ve started doing some new things like jumping on top of things and jumping down.  I’ve started jogging as well, which will help with the strengthening of my leg tremendously.  However, what’s more important is that I’ve been cleared to start doing some very (I mean very) basic stuff on some of the events.  I just have to be careful when doing things in order to minimize the risk of falling. because falling will be bad news.

Today was a pretty exciting day because I just did my first giants on high bar since surgery.  Of course it’s one of the most basic skill in gymnastics, but I have to admit that it felt a little strange.  My hands are also super soft from not swinging for four months so I have to be careful not to overdo it. Doing so will lead to torn up hands, which I don’t want!  All of my joints feel a bit stiff also.  It’s not that I haven’t been training (I’ve been doing conditioning everyday) but it just goes to show that gymnastics-related movements uses a bunch of different muscles.

Nevertheless, I can tell that things are progressing!

    I remember that feeling of soft hands from when I was coming back from my broken hand mid season. It’ll come back faster than you think!
