Parkour Club

Lately, I've spent a lot of my time working on some videos for my school's parkour and freerunning club. For those of you that don't know. parkour and freerunning are just a little bit awesome. Popularized by David Belle, it has become a phenomenon, sweeping across the entire world.

That's just one day of fun, and the club meets three times a week at noon. Some of the guys in the video founded their own team, and are fantastically talented in their own right.

So Yeah... I uh... Haven't Posted for a While

I haven't posted for a while, but really, I swear, I have a good reason. When I started the blog It was called TriTrainer, and I was dead set on recording my training log and thoughts. Unfortunately, my training got in the way of writing about my training. I went through a whole wrestling season, played rugby in the spring, and biked all over creation during the summer. I ran cross country for fall 2013, and had a blast. I almost made it all the way through the wrestling season during the winter.

I ALMOST made it through the season. Almost and close enough both only count with horseshoes and hand grenades. During a tournament, I got kinda messed up and now I've had to take the rest of the season off. When I say kinda messed up, I mean that I got dropped on my head, and shattered part of my spine. That sucked, and I've got more than a few aches and pains now. On the plus side, I got to ride in an ambulance with all of the lights and sirens. At the hospital I got some screws and a plate put on my spine, I'll have to get back to you on whether or not I set off metal detectors at the airport. That would be a pretty confusing cavity search for the TSA agents though, trying to figure out whether or not I'm lying about setting off the alarm with metal that I have hidden in my neck. It'd be fun to watch.

Complete truth: I've been cheating on Blogger with a different blog site. Now, I'm switching back because I can't monetize the other one, and it doesn't have as good site stats as Google. I think you know which one I'm talking about (*cough* wordpress *cough*)

First Wrestling Practice in a While

I've been out of town for a while, which unfortunately meant that I had to miss some wrestling practice. Today was the first day in over a week that I've done a serious workout, and it felt tough. In addition to the actual practice, we ended the workout with weight lifting and sprinting. Afterwords, I had to run to make up time because of all the practices I missed on vacation. In the halls, I did a little over two miles. This is the first post, so stay tuned!
