but my mom thought i would get hurt, so my last year of gymnastics she started me in dance "to help my gymnastics," then the following year transitioned me out of it and kept me in the dance classes... clever lady... LOL
I did it for 8 years. Was pretty good myself, but the vault was always my Achilles heel.
I miss and love it, but my gym closed down due to money problems so I had to leave and I was getting at the point where it was actually time to start thinking about pre-Olympic tryouts and such. It's a shame, but Gymnastics also takes up your whole life. I remember spending hours and hours in the gym, from 6-10 on weekdays and from 12-5 on weekends.
Took adult gymnastics with other parents who were waiting for their little ones who had their class after daycare. The stretching hurt like hell, but loved flipping into the pit of foam rubber. Wait, is their kink in that?!
