Short night session around my old high school. It really has a lot of potential, but mostly fun if you're more advanced. Not too long ago Taylor made a nice video showing some of it off:
While there I ended up mostly practicing my kong run up, learning to trust it more and more in the outside world. I want to have enough trust in it that it serves me well on Saturday :P I also worked bear kong on both sides and nearly made the wallrun you see Taylor do at 0:43, except on the other side without the step. Kept slapping metal,but I bet I could have it in a few weeks ;)
Thursday. Gym day! They actually were doing vaults so I crashed the class. Now my speeds need more work... can't stop doing any of this stuff :/ Which is a great thing about parkour - you have to keep doing movements or you'll lose them. Can't get toooo big of a head (though I hear it helps with bailing). On my higher kongs I noticed I was landing badly; it felt way too stiff and shocking, and started to hurt. Of course it was cause I'd started landing on my heels, which sent a jolt through my spine every time. Interesting how much better a proper landing feels, that the balls of your feet make things so much smoother and more comfortable.
We met a couple traveling aussies at the lesson, and took them with us to Roscoe's (chicken and waffles) where we compared slang and accents. Really cool couple, hope to see them next week and train with them outside the weekend after.
