      Feeling accomplished. Yesterday I did the middle split series for the first time. This was the most difficult thing I've ever done in GST. My hip mobility is currently very poor  but I'm finally doing something about it. I gotta give props to the forum coaches and members because I've gotten so much help from all of you in tackling my #1 weakness.  
      Peace love and mobility, 
      Darwin

      After becoming frustrated with Thrive (turns out the "measurement" system had me way undereating) I took a step back from most of GymnasticBodies. I'm back on my previous eating plan and feeling much better, so I've been adding GB foundations and stretching back into the my schedule little by little. 
      I'm happy to say I haven't lost any progress since my break in April. Of course, I haven't exactly been sitting around eating bon-bons, so that shouldn't be too surprising. Yet, it was nice to confirm that I didn't become a marble statue doing nothing but heavy barbells and a daily twenty minute RomWod over the past couple of months. I wouldn't have minded backing up in the progressions, but had I lost mobility, I would've been hating on myself for getting lazy.
      So I'm back. I hope. I'm working on a program that includes barbell and GB workouts. Once that's complete, it should be easier to fit it all in and still have fun with my workouts.
      Have an awesome, active summer, my friends!

      Note to self. Don't do Cossack squats with zero warmup first thing in the morning, when you just started doing the PE...

      Wrist extensors had been aching the past couple weeks. Even just interlocking hands to do shoulder extension stretch would make them ache. 1 week of wrist pushups/wrist stretches and the aches magically disappear lol
