NSN Day 6 - Coaching Question

Friday, November 08, 2019

"What have I tried or experienced that I would have never attempted before I started on SparkPeople?".

Roller Derby. Artistic Skating. Aerial Silks.

I still struggle with thinking of myself as particularly athletic but these are things that others consider me athletic for doing. Honestly running laps at derby practice still astonishes me. I was that kid that was always dead last, panting and limping with a side stitch when we had to run in PE. I hated it. I'm pretty sure I'll never be "a runner" but I have developed the ability to run when the situation calls for it without hating it and most importantly without hating myself.

I have tried things that were hilarious failures as far as performing the task with anything resembling grace but I didn't feel like a failure while doing so. Aerial Silks in particular. I look like a turkey in a sling when I invert but I can do it damn it and one day maybe I will look like the beautiful people I study with at Weightless Aerial but maybe not and that's ok. Strong is the new sexy you know.
