got 5s holds on all front levers, starting to be able to extend legs better.

halfhearted stretching. jumped rope instead of the continuous 180-degree jumps. is more fun.

amazing workout, i just feel great. slept like 10 hours last night, which probably helped, and it's over 100 outside so i got and stayed very warm. practiced handstands during rest periods, tried different stuff for floor kips including finally dragging the mattress off one of the beds in the guest room so i can properly follow the GMB progression. it's thick enough to work.

started to try to get into some crane instead of crow. playing around with wrist position. struggled with front lever.

fireworks and yelling in the neighborhood right now because pakistan just SMOKED india in the champions trophy finals. bit of a cinderella story this year (although not really because pakistan is a traditional power, they're just a bit down now). i was here in islamabad six years ago when india beat pakistan in the semis of the cricket world cup. this is more fun.

turns out the biggest issue for me on pirouettes is doing them on non-flat surfaces. they are much easier on flat and smooth ground. lol. motivation has been super low the last couple of days. counting down until i head back to the states for three weeks in the wee hours of friday. i'm so goddamn excited.

right wrist started bothering me during cartwheels. floor kips were shit again today after feeling last time like i'd figured out a way to progress. mental block is strong, very frustrated.

Man that sucks about the kips. I know "just keep at it" is not necessarily what you want to hear but I recall chasing this for years and only getting it consistently after a lot of practice.

cheers man, i know that's the way. it's just annoying because i've made progress on everything else. but you're talking to a guy who ground away at trying to dunk, inefficiently but more or less relentlessly, for six years before finally doing it. i'll get there eventually.

struggled a bit again with levers. i think i'm flexing my abs too much or something and the elbows are slipping out. hm. got some good float holds (8-10s) on wall handstands.

now, vacation. will be moving around and practicing here and there but probably not logging, or at least not much. eid mubarak y'all.

halfway through vacation. went for a run/calisthenics workout in the park with gf in san francisco one day and have been walking a lot but otherwise basically no exercise. it's been kind of exhausting, we're moving around a lot. looking forward to heading to the beach on friday and just sitting still for a while. made a pact with gf to exercise every day -- yoga or calisthenics or tennis or a run or whatever.

^^^yup, teaching yoga is how she's been supporting herself this year. unsurprisingly, she turned out to be a pretty quick learner at tennis. her hand-eye coordination isn't great -- which makes sense since she never played any kind of ball sport growing up -- but she can move and swing the racket. we're gonna keep playing over here, might even finally get a few lessons once she's making decent money again.

i worked out every day at the beach except one. mainly tennis but also went surfing one day! managed to stand and ride three waves (briefly, but still). life achievement unlocked. an old friend's little sister's boyfriend is a surfer and they live near where we were staying, and he was cool enough to hook me up with a board and a low key lesson. gf was not as disciplined but that's on her. ::)

i'm gonna be a zombie today, arrived home at 4:45 AM (although got bumped to business on the last leg! first time that's happened to me, business class rules). need to go grocery shopping tonight and get back to GMB. i think i'll just restart week 9 and go from there.

ETA: weighed myself on my old scale in DC (crashed there with a friend who's living in my old apartment and so inherited some of my stuff), and i was 180.3. slightly surprising as the scales here were telling me i was in the mid-160s. i'm still lean enough to have visible abs so it doesn't really matter. just a notable data point.

mild soreness in hams and upper back, from the scales. a bit stiff in wrists, neck, and hips so kept volume light. must redouble commitment to stretching.
