So, I still stink at the Rings (see
http://40andoverblog.com/?p=5182), but after three more weeks, I am getting better.
And I invested in gear that gymnasts use on the rings. The shipping was more expensive than the equipment.
I have one thing to say, “stick with the hurt you know.”
Still, the day had its small triumphs: I swung and grabbed a third ring and almost grabbed a fourth!! I need to control my torso better. I was so concerned about my arms that I forgot to crunch my abdomen and propel with legs.
Here is the distrastrous footage. This is a blooper and self-respecting people would not post this:
Not graceful — yet — just me. As you see, as I am, I am.
Watch out for the end of July — I will be awesome. Now? Not so much.
