I am planning on doing some backbends, cartwheels, walkovers and handsprings later. I also am going to stretch (I love stretching!!! That is why I can do the splits!!!) I need to do some strength training but I always forget I somehow can't remember to do it!!! So in summary strong ends stretching and gymnastics. Weak ends strength training and cardio (Well gymnastics does give me some of that but I need more).

Can't help wanting to do gymnastics. Well I will admit that I am a show-off so I do my stuff in our front yard and if I see a car coming I will cartwheel then just to show off!

No exercise for me over the last few days, I have managed to sprain my ankle. It was quite exciting. I went to a posh ball on Friday, felt ill after about an hour and got sent back to the hotel where I was staying with two friends, who just so happen to be nurses.

In the middle of the night I got up to go to the loo, and bang, I fainted, whacked my head on the wardrobe, and twisted my ankle. It looks very pretty, purple underneath my foot and all puffed up!

I got sent to hospital in an ambulance, no idea what caused my sickness or the fainting, but the two theories of the doctor are either a virus or food poisoning.

I just have to be the centre of attention!

YIKES! Kyles, that sounds terrible! I hope you are feeling better now. I know the ankle will take a bit to heal but the tummy upset is gone I hope. Did you get a picture of yourself in your ball gown before you felt icky?

As for me, no treadmill on Sunday, I took the day off. I did a walking track yesterday for about 40 minutes and did my treadmill today for 40 minutes. Does anyone have a remedy for the static electricity build up on the treadmill? I sprayed Static Guard on the belt but that did absolutely nothing.

Ouch!! I also had my share of twisted ankles, once I even managed to do that somehow while just walking on a perfectly flat street with a pair of trainers!! (for this reason I would never dare wear something like high-heels even if I wouldn't look so ridiculous in them!) I hope your friends gave you a proper r.i.c.e. treatment quickly, without it it could be a real bugger for some time...
But I do suggest that you get checked further into the cause of your fainting, if just to make sure it is not related to anything serious. Was this the first time that you experienced fainting? Anyhow I hope you will feel better soon, and take good care of yourself!

I wish I could...
Today I ran into the table thing in gymnastics because I forgot to jump on the springboard because I was trying something new, and I fell off the beam trying to stand up.
Last week I had a sore neck because I can't do a somersault and landed funny. (I have to take gymnatics, I wish I were better at it.)

Other than that I walked half a mile in 16 degree weather and did 10 minutes of cardio. Then I made dinner...

Tromped around the woods today. Tried to keep from slipping and falling on my butt in all that ice, patches of snow, and some mud.
