Today I did a lot of parkour training at a particular spot at my school. I mostly practiced wallruns, precisions, etc. There was a lot of running up and down the nearby stairs because I was going all over the place.

Also, I'm considering trying the 365 challenge again, I'm gonna try to have it officially start on the first day of October.

Another random note, I bought 80 ft of rope, so when it comes in I'll be working on a lot of rope climbs and other various types of grip training.

9/12/12 I mostly practices vaults, strides wallruns and a little balance at a spot at my school. I had to end the session a little early though because I bruised my hip on a roll on concrete.

I was seeking out spots and training for two hours straight at my school. I practiced mostly balance and vaults, I'm a lot more comfortable training with people around.

I did a small amount training at my school, I took things slow because I'm not used to training in such a public environment, but I'm getting more and more comfortable. That day I started to think of some great respectful responses when people ask me, "What are you doing?" or tell me, "Stop what you are doing."

I didn't do too much, I just practiced some balance and vaults for about half an hour waiting for an appointment because I arrived a bit too early.

Today I played a game of tag we call, "Ninja zombie tag" where the people are it have their eyes closed and it spreads, etc. I did few other parkour related things such as flow work, precisions, and little bit with double kongs (I'm getting so close!)

I went for a run for the first time in ages, I probably jogged a total of 10-15 minutes (at different times), and ended up walking the rest of the 45ish. I set the goal to be able to job 30 minutes straight since my stamina is crap.

I went to Santa Monica. I worked on the rings and I'm starting to find that my hands are losing their strength real fast (Probably because it's still tearing a little? I'm not too sure). I tried to do a frontflip off a ledge and into a sand and ended up landing on my ass. I think I tried to compensate for the height and I was a bit hesitant. I also played beach volleyball which felt like a waste of energy in my opinion because of the grueling sun and how much we both sucked, haha. In terms of parkour, I didn't really do much until we were leaving where I ran all the way back to the parking lot going through areas with lots of obstacles.

I did some parkour training at a nearby undeveloped shopping center. I practiced mostly precisions, balance, and flow. I also worked on practicing kongs at an odd long/low angle.

Today I did some parkour training at the nearby school teaching my friend basics. I did a lot of precision and vault stuff and toyed around at some nice set of rails.

I went to Santa Monica, did some pullups, worked the rings, etc. I did a pk run all the way back to the parking lot to get picked up. Afterwards when I came home, I worked on some planche progressions and notice that I have actually been improving.

I did some parkour training. I worked with crane landings, wallclimbs, wallruns, vaults, etc.

I had some pathetic, half-assed, unproductive training. In fact, I didn't accomplish anything on my to-do list though so...

I walked about a bit today and then found a new spot nearby. It's a nearly empty shopping center, and around the side and the back there are a lot of rails, ledges, etc. The only thing is that I found it hard to find anything interesting to work on without risking joint problems. I played around the area for a while, now I just need to put the spot to good use.

I did a small amount of training. The first thing I did was a catleap that left me injured the rest of the day, the next day my 2nd biggest toe was a bit swollen. I practiced rolls, precisions, climbing a few trees. I didn't do anything special, just taking my new shoes for a test drive.

Light gtg training towards various goals. I did a little run, then found a little spot to do a little training, then walked back home.
I did some training and conditioning at Santa Monica. I worked the rings, and worked on a few exercises, went swimming a bit. But after then after the rings and swimming, my hands were a bit beaten up so practicing parkour was a bit rough and I kept making small slips. There was a wall-run I've been working on that I barely managed to touch the top of today, but I need to keep working on it to be able to climb up. I did some small conditioning towards the end, and that was that.

I did a light amount of somewhat 'gtg' of various exercises just to keep myself going.
I did the same as the previous day, I think I did a bit more though. I mostly worked on planche progressions, but I also worked on L-sits, and some squat variations.

On another note, lately I'm feeling more determined to work towards bouldering movements (though I don't really have the time and environment for it) and training to be prepared for Ninja Warrior for when I'm 21, 3 years from now.

I don't think anyone should care if it's 'in style'. But I don't see popularity going down any time soon.

I did a small amount of training around my mom's house. I worked with unconventional wall-climbing variations with a brick wall, popvaults, flow, etc. I almost did a popvault with too much power that I almost flew over the wall!

I went to Santa Monica again. I did a lot of ring training (My hands are weathered like a warrior's!) I did a rope climb, went off into the water and wrote, "TO HELL WITH CIRCUMSTANCES, I CREATE OPPORTUNITIES!" -Bruce Lee, along the sand. I finished up the day doing some work with rails, ledges, and walls. I was still sore and stiff from yesterday, in fact my right thigh/groin had this odd soreness, stiffness, and pain when I raised my bent leg at a certain height.
