Gymnastics

Well, I finally did it. And its not a free handstand. I've torn or strained some muscle in my left hip. It's an external rotator though, I did it on my first attempt at a cartwheel I think. Anyway, I'm in the cold water bath now. Wont be able to run for a bit. That left side has been weird since last week.
Gymnastics was ok, not as difficult as last week. Felt I was getting better on my front flips. More aware of where I am in space. Handstands not much better, got one that felt right from about twenty attempts. Lots of good core exercises as part of the strength work which lasts about thirty minutes. Need lots of handstand practice.
