omg i just made one of the hardest decisions in my life, i quit gym. this was on tuesday that i did that. It was just becoming too much of something i didnt want to do, i was getting way to injured, and i didnt feel like i fit in in our gym. i hope i will be happy with this decision, i am a little scared about if it was the right thing to do. I dunno. It gives me more time, which is good, i am still doing dance and cheer tho. and now i coach at the gym, i coach little rec. girls. they are cute. Aliesa told me that if i ever wanted to come back i could, and if i wanted to come in and tumble i could. She is awesome. I already kinda miss gym, i had a dream about it last night. it was weird it had to do with swimming in the ocean mostly. But anyways, bye

k glad i got my first meet over! and now i am very excited for pikes peak! okay well here is how i did. and the night before the meet my coaches told me i wasn't doing vault and floor becuz my ankle was real bad and so were my arms, but when we were warming up they were like ya, T go warm up vault and floor!?what the hell?but it was all good.

Vault: a flipping 8.575 - get this i landed on my butt both vaults, haha, but becuz it has a 9.8 start vault i get high scores no matter what. okay my vault is a yurchenko phelphs, in english, roundoff bhs half off front flip. its cool.

Bars: 8.5 - i fell :( poop. i didn't catch my low to high thingy, damn, but i caught it in warm up so that was exciting. but yea i would have gotten a 9.0 if i didn't fall, plus my start vault was a 9.6, ha. but i stuck my double! yay.

Beam: 7.7, psh wow. i felt really good on beam but i guess not,lol. i fell three times, and totaly bombed my mount but stayed on. without the falls, i would have gotten a 9.2 k, and they took my bonus away from my wolf full becuz i fell on it so thats a 9.4, and if i didn't mess up my mount,cuz i alway hit it inworkout, i would of gotten a 9.7, f'n i would of got first, damn. but thats okay at least i know i can fix those things there not like technical, just falls! so yea that was a nice score considering what i would of got.

Floor: 9.025 - no big mistakes, the only thing i messed up was my wolf 1 1/2. so 3 tenths there. and my tumbling was awsome, so i fell good, but it wassad cuz i didn't get to put my double in my routine,o well next time.

AA: 33.85 - for the first meet, thats hot. lol, yep lets see how pikes peak goes!

luv ya ~~~~~> tbone

[ mood | annoyed ]

last weekend we had a practice meet at our gym. i had pulled my hamstring a week or 2 earlier. it wasnt completly healed yet and i didnt think it was the best idea to compete. but my coach didnt believe me that it still hurt so i still competed. we only had to compete beam and floor. on beam everything was ok until i had to do my scale and i dont know why but killed my leg. i finished my routine and i got a 7.0. thats not bad concidering i was hurt. but after my routine i was in tears because it hurt so much.

then on floor everything i did killed. in practice i never did my slip in my routine for the past couple of weeks cuz it hurt so much, but in the meet i pushed myself down and it killed. in my front handspring, the landing broke me.. my friend missy told me it looked like it hurt. and it did. in my first leap i slip as far as i could and it killed me. then it my second one i didnt go as high. then in my round off backhandspring,backhandspring... my leg killed in the roundoff and my backhand springs were good except my legs were apart. i got a 7.8. again its ok for being injured. i was limping the whole time after the meet and my coach didnt even realise i was hurt and she saw me like massaging my leg trying to make it stop hurting then i had to the take this whole week off from practice to let it heal.. i hate injuries

Right now I'm watching BYU vs Oregon or Utah or something. It's from 2000 so I don't know why its on tv, but it is. It is DRIVING ME NUTS. The girls vaults are VERY simple, like handspring front tuck and they're falling. This one girl did that vault with a start of 9.8 and fell and got A 9.5! The scoring is making me crazy. Oh and it reminded me of how much I very much miss the old vault.
