Second Trapeze Lesson

I've been sucked into Sweepsland all week, but Friday night we went down to DC for our second trapeze class. It was our first full class--2 hours. We got 6 turns I think. Maybe 7. We did the knee hang, learned to do a back flip off the trapeze, and started practicing a new trick--the heels off. My first two practices with the heels off were fine, but when I went to catch--disaster. The first catch attempt, I just didn't do anything when it was time to release. The second catch attempt I did a back bend instead of just bending back my neck--and my heels ended up floating off the bar. Oops. I was a bit disappointed that I didn't catch. Hopefully next time. Ross did get caught--from the knee hang.

Our class was 830-1030. I think that's a bit late for us. I think we'd have a little more energy earlier in the day. We didn't get home until after midnight! The outdoor rig opens May 1st, so I think we'll schedule our next class after that. I think we'll also try another silks class.

I'm sore. We both are. We are bruised and scraped up, but that doesn't stop me from wanting more.....
