"I'm Just Going For a Run"

My attempts at putting up a training journal. I figured it'd help me keep track of what I do and maybe get some (very) welcome criticism.  ;D

Probably wondering why I haven't been posting anything, and so have I XP I kind of have shin splints again and haven't been doing much training. Mostly abs workouts and upperbody stuffs. Anyways!

10/9/2014:

Derped around at the park today.
~20 climb ups (no momentum from wallrun)
10 pistol squats (per leg)
A bunch of crunches and crunchy frogs.
Learned how to do that rail trick that's like a double lazy vault. Jesse La Flair calls it the Italian Job, I guess xD
Worked on my b-twists and b-kicks a little bit.
Shin exercises.
Also did some handstand training. I'm getting my times up :D Went from about 2 seconds a few weeks ago and can now hold my balance for ~7 seconds or more.

Pretty much the same thing all this week. I did some upper body and core workouts with shin exercises while I wait for my shin splints to heal up.
Diamond push ups
One handed pushups
Crunches
Crunchy froggies
did some pullups and climb ups
tried one handed pullups, failed miserably   :D
did archer pullups
dips 'nd stuff... lots of dips... I do them in class, at home, in my chair... dips... O-o

MOAR DIPS!!! In my Spanish class we presented food for a project and I did dips between me and my friend's desk for like 30 mins while they  presented. I like dips, for some reason. They're fun..
So since I decided I was healed of my shin splints I went outside and learned how to do an aerial/side flip thing/cartwheel with no hands... Pretty sure it's called an aerial. I'd done it once before by accident but today I went outside and nailed a bunch of 'em! I'm actually a little nauseous from doing so many cartwheels.. I was going cartwheel to aerial so I could build momentum. Plus it's fun to do 2 handed cartwheel to one handed to no handed  8)
Pretty much all I did xP I have a bit of a head ache now..

Went to the park yesterday and trained some. There were tires by the track at my school (the big ones) so I lined them up with a little distance and stacked two on top of each other and made a sort of obstacle course. It was epic xD tires are so bouncy and easy to do flips off of o-o Plus I got a bit of a leg and arm and back work out moving the tires around. I ran the track a couple of times and did some pistol squats and climb ups. Today I had an all day 10 hour boring retreat but I did a few aerials and vaults and stuff when I got the chance  ;D

Yesterday I took off because my shins hurt again and I had a lot of homework :'( I maybe kind of sort of broke some rules and did a few aerials but don't judge me!   [WTF]

Today I spammed aerials until I felt my brain was turning to mush in my head from all the cartwheels.. Also I found this: http://gizmodo.com/5902699/banish-shin-splints-forever-with-one-magical-exercise

The exercise actually works pretty well and I do it along with titanium ankle training stuffs. I shouldn't have  problems with my shins for long  ;)

But seriously I'm nauseous so I'm gonna go lie down O-o

I've continued to do the shin exercises 2-3 times a day, however my shin splints seem to be back worse than before... Going to the doctor's sometime soon to see what's up and get some suggestions. Going to continue to do the shin exercises anyway, but lay off of the aerials for a while. (I did one just for fun and my legs cried.) I was doing cartwheels into aerials yesterday and kicked the shit out of a low hanging branch. My pinkie toe took most of the hit, but (thankfully) isn't broken. It hurt like hell though. Still doing lots of dips and working towards one handed push ups. I can do about 2 now (per arm) if my legs are spread out. Considered doing 1h pullups but that shyt looks hard xD Going to lay off of pretty much everything that might worsen my shin splints and start my abs/upperbody stuffs again..



P.S: Shin splints are one of the most annoying things I've ever encountered.

Yeah, shin splints suck, but on the plus side, climb ups are extremely easy now xD

Shin exercises
I was feeling good today so I iced up my shins and brought my spare mattress into the yard to train front flips. I did pretty well until I did and aerial and landed a bit wrong... right shin flared up in pain.. went inside, iced it.. I feel okay now, thankfully.
Dips (of course xP)
Otherwise I was pretty lax today. Didn't really do much.

Even though I hate it when other people say __ is love __ is life, I feel like I need to say this... Dips are love, dips are life :D Pistol squats are pretty cool too..

Today and yesterday I worked on front handsprings, which I got, and aerials with no momentum, which I also have.. No run up aerials are so sick XD I need to put a video of me doing on up here..

Did some dips at school (obviously)
A couple of aerials and b-kicks/failed b-twists
Not much today, got my feiyues in the mail but they were a "little" bit too big.

I was thinking of returning them but I thought about it and realized it wouldn't really be worth it. With the $5 restocking fee and $10 to ship it to them I'd only be getting $5 back :P I just decided to order a pair of feiyue los before they go out of stock and hope to grow into my feiyues sometime soon. I ordered a size smaller of feiyue los, though so they should fit.
The "little" was meant as sarcasm :P They're actually quite a bit too big.. Like a whole inch between my toe and the front of the shoe.
