What to do when the snow flies...
« on: January 17, 2006, 07:43:05 PM »
Well, the snow just started to fall again which means that the amount of free running that can be done will be severely impaired. I know that many people use the winter months to sharpen their skills for the spring at gyms and whatnot, but what exactly do you practice? What kind of things can you do without having to be outside?

Well, I for one know that ice can be a particularly harrowing challange.  But interesting.

Snow is GREAT for practicing rolls and such.  And other moves that might require a softer landing on the first few trys.  ;D

Ya, just look at it as natural padding ;)

Warning!:

If outside in the snow, never quickly go back indoors and run full speed on a tile floor towards a wall, in an attemp to do a wall run!

(slip. slide, crash, ouch)  Any springs guys reading this just got a good laugh :)

I did something like this and afterwards all I could see looking up with my back on the ground was Jimmy ("Altimot" on these forums) who was above me still on the glass roof outside, blowing on the glass and writting O-W-N-E-D :)

In winter I can't do much except rolls and jumps. But over winter we go to a gymnastix place with every thing. If you need training really bad PM me to set up a time. At flames they help you with alot of parkour and freeflow stuff. The main instructor can do three gainer on groung in a row. To check the place out check this website.
