I DID IT!!

No. I didn’t do The Picnic. BUT! I got my back handspring! There is something mildly terrifying about throwing yourself backwards and hoping *hoping* your arms hold you up, and you’re actually strong enough, and you don’t land on your head and break your neck. But when it works (which it only does if you 100% commit) it’s so satisfying!

And, I landed my first EVER front tuck on the floor! As a kid, I did a lot of back handsprings (I even did them on the beam for a short time), but I never landed a front tuck (or even really worked one).

This one needs work (more tuck! more up! less travel!) but it was still really awesome to land it!
