Weekly Progress Report: 2012-08-09
Challenge #10: PicLetters
New letter! Last weekend I was in Toronto, and took some shots of the School of Art and Design (or something like that) with that big gizmo-like extension of the building. It features LEGS.
Those legs happened to give me the letter M!
Only two letters left. WOO!
Challenge #16: Parkour Combo
This weekend, I had the opportunity to participate in the Canadian Annual Parkour Meet in Toronto, ON! Met lots of people, had loads of fun, despite the incredible humidity and heat. I was glad to bring the girl with me, too. :3
My Kong Vault is steadily improving. Here’s a video I got this weekend:
The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.
The visual improvement is subtle, but the feeling while doing it is radically different. I feel less fear and more confidence.
Some of the technical cues I want to work on are bringing my hips higher than shoulder level, jumping from farther away (thus diving more), and jump split-style (from one leg) to avoid breaking the momentum of my run.
I wanted to make my report closer to last weekend, but I was focused on the final exams of my current studies. Fair excuse, I guess.
Only one exam left tomorrow morning AND I’M DONE! Just can’t wait, and still barely realizing it.
One of the things I’ll do to celebrate is to go to Cuba for a week with my brother and mom. Fun ahead!
