NEW CHEER SHOESThis week I received my Infinity phoenix shoes and sadly found out them to be helplessly too big for me :/ - But luckily they were just perfect for our team's other flyer, Essi so she bought them and I was able to order one size smaller ones. ^^
I wish all would be over with this competition routine but in the other hand NO, I want to stuck in these 2 weeks we have left.
This past week has been nearly made me cry in every practice for sheer frustration. But it's a forgiving feeling when a coach approaches you and lays her arm on your shoulder "I see you are so stressed out of your parts, you know you can make it"
Mostly because of my shoes and my unstable twists I have hurt some of my bases and backspots. But they just keep going on. Especially my backspot ( I call her MY cause she is in my every stunt group in the routine and she just ROCKS<3) Nelli, I have punched her lip to look like she just got botox, my shoes have ripped a blood dripping (yes in every practice it opens again and never heals) wound to her hand - but she keeps smiling, she keeps working and she keeps pushing our stunt group forward. She never complains and never gives up - the best backspot !!! <3
Some how what I remember from being a base it was much easier to just pump iron or doing jogging to maintenance your fitnees - as a flyer I see that there's lots of work to do outside practices.
I don't feel like ready for practice or stunting if I haven't stretched at home or early in the morning - I can't go to sleep without stretching. I also don.t feel that the warm up is never enough for me so I do some prework pretty often.
In cheerleading everyone is prepared getting hurt and if someone cheerleader save lives all the time.
But when somebody gets long term injured I feel so sorry for them.
Yesterday Karo broke her knee, and I went totally nuts - she is the one who kisses and hugs when some one is crying on the mat - but now it was her on the mat, and we weren't even allowed to go near before the medics came.
I wish she will come to see our practice - I never done it but I so hardly want to send her flowers!!
*This something super rare so better see this.*Somehow cause I feel myself super busy and boring I hardly ever see my friends. I'm always tired and I just don't feel "The need" to be with people after being at work and cheerleading - I find it perfectly entertaining to sit on the computer :P Dont get me wrong I love my friends but I dont like the attitude "hey lets get drunk" or "when we will meeeet......!!?!?!?!"
So on Saturday we went shopping with Jaakko.
I didn't take any pictures cause I was kinda excited all the time!!! I cant even rememeber when was it the last time when I was shopping with someone! Or shopping. We spent the entire day searching for some party clothing for the upcoming parties \:D/ and we ate at Pasha's till I felt I was going to explode and drank Cafe Latte Macchiattos at La Torrefazione. Also checked out the new look of Kluuvi's shoppin center. I enjoyed his company ( he has the most perfect athlete's values I know - and they fit mine) and hope to see him pretty soon!!
And today Wille offered to make some dinner to me :) It was Awsum! His home is cool too!! :D After my best friend his the second person I have known for ages!!
He made salad and pasta, we watched The Incredible s and My name is David - and talked a huge load of stuff - and how weird people really are...
Some picks of this weekends practice <3
