I got super motivated to train, by playing b-ball, the footwork, the accuracy, the hand-eye coordination, the spatial awareness, dissipation of kinetic energy, geez... that made my day.

About to leave Greece I'm sure Berlin/Paris/London will be great, but I don't want to leave Greece! But, in a week and a half I'm back to Italy to join an archaeological dig on Mt Vesuvias! Is there a female equivalent to Indiana Jones? I'm feeling very Indiana Jones-ishSomeone needs to make a TV series about you.
On that note, I can't help but notice that ancient ruins would be FANTASTIC training grounds... The Classicist/Archaeologist/Jekyll side of me keeps thinking "Preserve everything! Don't touch anything!" while the Traceuse/Little Kid/Hyde part of me keeps thinking "Jump over everything! Climb over everything! Play!" sigh. When I'm rich I'm going to build a ruin city and make it a parkour park...
this made my day kinda suck, lol.
Long story: I work in a middle school (as a sign language interpreter) and I tend to dress for gym when I'm interpreting for it. Yesterday we went outside and I was just practicing my handstands with a couple other guys. At the end of the hour I was jogging towards a bench to feel out maybe doing a kong over it, which I've never had much of a problem doing before. Well, as I'm JOGGING toward the bench one of the students yells "Same time!" and starts running for the bench right next to mine. Instead of saying, "Hold up, gonna check it out first," I try to speed up at the coast second to go over. Instead, my feet clipped on the top of the bench and I fell onto the CONCRETE PATH on the other side. Points of contact: right elbow, left hand, right knee.Sign language interpreter? I'm a KODA. (Khildren of the Deaf Association.) Ik its random but...meh.
Stinks: hurt my wrist which makes it difficult to interpret and I'll have to rest it a couple days meaning not a lot of Parkour or handstands; people were watching.
Awesome: learned a lesson; didn't break anything; people watching were more concerned than anything else (except for one 8th grader who laughed hysterically); I got up CRACKING UP.
