my foot (this time, yay!)

OMG OMG OMG, I am soooooo happy! My foot doesn't hurt at all anymore! Not even sore! I don't know what happened to it, but I was able to attend practice today and perform well. My back handsprings aren't looking so good... but I HAVE to look on the bright side, and of course pray about it! I'm not all that close on back walkovers either, and not only that, but the first meet is next month! It's been a year and I still can't do it!!!!!! It's easy to become impatient, but I just have to focus more on the routine and less on the skill alone. (Floor is what i'm talking about)

Now, when it comes to balance beam, I guess I am doing pretty good, because on the self-evaluation chart I made I have completed every Level 4 skill, just not perfectly. But the problem is, even if I get what would be a [perfect] 10 at practice, at the actual recital or meet or competition, (whatever you call it) I fall off two times. And yes, that IS bad. I SHOULDN'T FALL OFF AT ALL!!!! The average beam is four feet off the floor, but mine is only four inches! I have no reason to fall! And I've mastered a cartwheel and handstand, so that'll be soooo easy. My goal for this meet? 2nd place!

Now vault is what I am worst at, but my goals are still high. This one I made the lowest goal, which is 3rd place. I want to place in every event. But vault is really hard for me. The level 4 vault is just a handstand and then fall on a huge crash mat, but I always roll at the end, which is not correct. And my vaults are probably too slow, so I don't really have a chance of placing in this event being the tallest girl against (mostly) short (mostly) five year olds. Practice is the word of the day...
