The HANDSPRING! Finally

After months of trying this move, I finally got it. Must be because of the pilates Linna made us do today! Haha....

I am so so so so so elated! This is like the real handspring. Previously what i did was somewhat fake, like this....you see, previously, I had one leg still leaning on the pole. The real thing is the body and limbs are completeky OFF the pole, which means to say the strength is entirely on your arms, abs and lots of core. don't believe, watch the video.

I didn't get into the move gracefully, I know. But, it's a freaking difficult move, so I'm euphoric already. It's the ultimate move for us polers! You get major respect for achieveing this. Anyway there are many variations, so I stil need to practise really hard.

Besides this, I am embarking on something fabulous (almost life-changing...no I'm NOT getting married) and I must say everything has been turning out rather nicely for me so far. Forgive me friends I can't tell you so much now, but i promise to unveil more when time is right. But i just can't contain my excitment.
