Oi.. why're you doing jumps like that for?!  :p

If you come, I'll let you in on things you can do to rehabilitate your knees and prevent further injury.

k.. the week after next.. I'm definitely doing a "Conditioning for injury rehab/prevention" theme.. >_>..

Btw, guys, I'll post it up later, but next week's session (Oct 23rd) will be CANCELLED as I have to go to Colorado for a few days for an event called Cine Parkour.

You'll need to park in the visitor's parking deck, which may or may not cost some money, I don't remember.  I think it costs a smalla mount.

From Braddock road, you're going to turn into GMU on Roanoke River Road (NOT Sideburn.. you WILL get lost).  Follow the road and the first fork, you go RIGHT to start going toward the visitor parking.  Once you're around the pond, ther'ell be another fork.. go left.  The visitor parking is at the end of this road.

If you're just being dropped off, you still want to be dropped off at this point.  There's a crosswalk, get dropped off there.. have your driver make a U-turn and go back out (rather than turning around at the actual visitor parking deck).  As for yourself, you're going to want to walk straight down into the university AWAY from the pond.  You'll run into the fine arts building.. go left when you reach it until you get to the next intersection of walkways.. you'll see fountains to the right.. go past them until you get to the big circle thing.

Okay, thanks for coming out.  Hope it was educational.  Thanks for killing the crickets, too.

Two weeks, guys.

Yeah, it was a lot of fun, sorry we're so out of shape.  I'll be there in two weeks, and may or may not have more people.

Pfft.  That's nothing to apologise for.  It comes with time.  Even if you couldn't climb-up, the attempts to do so did you some good.  I'll be a bit tougher on the conditioning aspect next time, but not so much.  I also need to think carefully of how to structure the next one if there's a large influx of newer people.

I had fun. But where the hell were all these mystery (wo)men?

edit: Also the scratches on the bottom of my foot have scabbed up nicely. I should probably buy some new shoes if I'm going to continue jumping onto walls and scraping off.

That was great, everyone!

I'm going to be slowly increasing the intensity and duration of the conditioning session over time.  I'm also going to be moving away from the drilling over time to focus more on fluency, but we'll do that piece by piece.
