Two weeks ago I posted that Maisie had her mill circle and promised that I would take my video camera to the gym to capture it but each and every time we've gone to the gym, I've forgotten. I think I'm losing my mind between forgetting to feed the poor girl and my camera…and often forgetting my phone too…old age is setting in!
The mill circle is the “big” move on the bars that the USA Level 3 girls need to be able to perform and Maisie is rocking them out, just needing a bit of polish.
I watch the video and Maisie at the gym and I can’t believe how high she casts for her back hip circle, the girl seems to fly around the bar yet has the control and strength to stop herself and not fly off or back around.
There’s still a month until competition season starts so the little flaws and forgotten arm & hand movements still have time to be worked on but I’m so proud of my amazing Maisie Miao Miao as she’s doing such a wonderful job and this routine is looking so good already.
Maisie’s beam routine is looking pretty good too and once she has her dismount a bit stronger, she’ll have a solid and strong routine.
Because Maisie’s practices are three hours long and I don’t hang out at the gym and vault is done in the middle of their practice, I have yet to see her vault. Her coaches say that she is solid-solid on it so I can’t wait to see it when she competes.
Today I posted a tipsy little drink recipe over on Cook Lisa Cook for a copycat of Outback Steakhouse’s Wallaby Darned. I’m not sure if it’s good or bad that I have absolutely zero alcohol tolerance because this drink is over-the-top delicious and if I could, I would drink this all.the.time!! As it is, I can only taste a teaspoon or two before feeling tipsy so I stick with my Watermelon Frosty, Mango Lassi, Mint Lassi and Cantaloupe Agua Fresca and let Eammon enjoy this one all on his own. Stumble on over to Cook Lisa Cook for the recipe so that you too can also enjoy this wonderful tipsy drink.
