Tuck and Roll!
Thursday, March 21, 2013
I just had to blog about this instance that happened to me in Bootcamp today, mainly because I find it so stinking funny! So we were doing this drill where we ran up on one side of the line of cones, and run backwards on the other side through about three lines, like, five times. Before I continue, let me also point out that my tennis shoes are beyond the point of worn out and I desperately need new ones! Well, I'm there, last one in the line, coming back on my last backwards run for the fifth and final time. When I say I was the last one, I do mean the LAST one! I was in a gym full of soccer players! Of course they're going to finish way faster! So I'm coming back, going as fast as I can, backwards, when my foot slides on the gym floor. I'm going so fast, there was no way on earth I was going to catch myself. So I completely fell backwards, butt hit the floor first, and the momentum just kept me going and I totally did this ninja tuck-and-roll sort of thing! I could hear the instructor (who is also an EMT, and the guy that knows of my hip injury) freaking out, and all the soccer girls gasp. But the entire time, I'm just sitting there laughing, thinking that was the most awesome thing ever! I even got a round of applause when it was over! So yeah, my butt got kicked, but the laugh I got out of that major faux pas, was totally worth it! Here's hoping I can feel my butt tomorrow! LOL!
