So i've been getting alot of stuff i couldnt before. certain gaps or vaults are now here that i never thought i could do.
Its been fun but ive had a higher ratio of near misses lately. clipping a foot here or there. slipping a hand on a kong.
just a lot of trip ups lately as the bigger stuff comes.
Have you ever felt an injury coming? Like on vaults were for a split second you imagine some horrible outcome and twisted limbs. Eventually i'll slip. Laws of Probability say it could happen mid-vault on the bigger challenges.

So yeah im holding back sometimes when i KNOW ive GOT something down. Just this lurking ominous feeling that something is gonna to go bad soon. Haven't always had this feeling and i think Giorgios nasty fall on the catleap (which i thought looked kinda big/long/slippery and was nervous about) may have brought it more into focus.

So time to man up and get over it i guess. if you fall, you fall. make sure you got it on film. make a bails clip and move on. This is the reason people exclamate at us traceurs, because we're crazy.

Notice how last night we did a lot of spotting? ... and it worked! You can avoid serious injury. Also, learning how to fall/bail couldn't hurt. Start putting yourself in bad situations (in a safe way) and make sure you have a way out.

...hehehe.
Agree with the reasoning, not with the conclusion.

The catleap fall was a little bitch, but had zero "functional" repercussion.
The same fall on another gap could be paralyzing or fatal.
Pain is one thing, but permanent injury or death is not "kosher"...

Parkour is also about recognizing the greater risks, and trying to avoid them.
One should take those on only once he/she has practiced the same difficulty -at a lower risk- so much, that he -theoretically- "can't" miss it...
