Aerial has been such a long arduous journey. Full of struggle, pain – literal (aerial hurts), and triumph. I keep showing up because every time I do something comes from it.
About 6 months ago I took a step back in the level I was training in. I wasn’t recovering, I was frustrated, I wasn’t gaining little victories it was just a suffer fest. So I’m reviewing and repeating in many cases what I’ve already learned and done a ton. Holding myself back has merited actual growth and progress. Literal gains every class I take. I’m learning new apparatus which seems to translate over in better strength and more awareness. I can do more tuck overs, pull ups, and I’ve got stamina to keep going.
It’s not just the stepping down into lower level classes that made a huge difference it was taking my health more seriously; sleeping a lot, opting out when I needed to, eating super clean, and working with @arcanumwholisticclinic
I literally feel like I’m conquering autoimmune issues, Epstein Barr, my confidence is climbing, and I’m happier and less down on myself. I’m able to up my physical activity and I’m more familiar with my body’s cues to slow down and I listen.
