I had my first day of trampoline club yesterday! It was completely a blast even though I only got to go 4 times. The gym was packed with students, so hopefully in the next few weeks the club thins out to just the people who really want to do it. I did: tuck jumps, straddle jumps, pike jumps, seat drops, swivel hips, front drops (a belly flop- very hard for this former diver to learn), and front drops with a half turn (so I land on my belly, then bounce back up to my feet while twisting to land facing the opposite direction I started in). It was fun, but the last trick was HARD! Some of the people there were coaches- students who are much better than the rest of us- and when they got to go it was pretty amazing. Some of them looked like they could jump through the ceiling and they did really amazing flips and twists, landing on their feet, backs, and bellies. It was awesome! I'm really excited to go back for more tomorrow :)
Today, however, I can really feel everything I did yesterday. I am one sore lady. In addition to trampoline club, I also walked to school, back to the dorms, to school, and back to the dorms again yesterday for what totaled at least 8km. I had a busy day! I think I will seriously consider getting a bus pass now...
Now, I'm off to get some work done on my class papers. The more I do now, the less I have to worry when all of my visitors come into town. So excited! See you all soon, Kim and Brent soonest :D
