Class Change Chaos

Please meet my 2 new footbags: prissy and mutt! And, a little class change chaos.
I shall speak of physical ailments today: bad back, causing sciatica in hip, knee, and down leg; and a still-tweaked left ankle, causing more pain and some inability to crank left inside stalls. I was hoping my ankle would be fine this week. Not so. Not nearly as bad as last week, but still a cause for concern. I may need to take a week off to let it heal a little more. Then again, if the weather is OK, I’ll suffer almost anything for a footbag session.
Overall I had a great time. The students, as always, are awesome to have around! I had some really nice rallies, although I never did hit my torques or blenders. I’ll blame the absence of torques on the ankle, but the missing blenders? D’oh! Shoulda tried more of those. And less of the less-than-flattering serve form.
Had to give it up to the injuries at 1:40 today. Still, I’m within 6 hours of my annual goal. Less than a half hour a week required! Even with winter weather moving in, I think I’ll be able to swing that.
1:40/54:20 – Thanks for tuning in!

Friday Footbag Fun

I got rained out last week. Then drove to Oklahoma and back over the weekend. Then pulled a couple half all-nighters for work. And then still had to work even more through my usual Thursday session time.
But… the “Big Event” I was working towards went off well. When it was done, my work was done for the week. FOOTBAG SESSION TIME!
I got some good variety in this rally: both torques, a blender, and a drifter; 28 3’s, 3 4’s, plus the rest. I’ll take that.
I really should start cataloging all the stuff I get playing footbag on Speaker Circle. People there are giving away things all the time: shirts, lemonade, cupcakes, hugs; and for this session, +1 Brazen for the ServiceNoodle.com and Maneater guys for summarily dumping their products in the middle of all my stuff. Hook me right up without interrupting my session. Thanks!
Trevor even showed up and kicked for a bit. But I ended up tweaking my ankle while I was kicking with him, and it was a session-ender. When I tried to solo style again, it hurt to crank my ankle in for a cross-body stall. Final Stat: an hour and a half. 52:40 total. Sweet deal!
Thanks for tuning in,
