Trapeze: Mixed Bag, I'm Sad

Class today was a mixed bag. I practiced my swing and my set whip. My whip wasn't nearly as good as it was on Wednesday (in the photo my chin should be tucked.) I'm not sure if that has something to do with it being so early in the morning. Who knows. Our class has chosen superheros as a theme for our show and I'm going to be Silk Spectre II. I think I have everything in the Amazon cart. I'll buy it all this weekend.

I asked if I could try the set planche and Donovan and Meghan said I wasn't strong enough. I'm really bummed about that. Time to start working out. One of the girls in my class was also doing the birdie, which I have been told is just for kids. To top it off I missed both my catches. I'm sad.

During class today Mandy and Mike (teachers for the Wednesday night class) were practicing a partner balancing/hand to hand routine. I snapped this photo of this super cool balance.
Meagan (a classmate) showed me how to do a Russian climb on the silks. Apparently I have been doing the French. I tried it out, but I didn't have the energy (even at the start of class) to climb all the way to the top. I'll make more of an effort to get video next week--silks climbing and my swing.
