Rainy Days.

After yesterday and the dreadful weather, I awoke to a surprisingly dry and sunny day. I got ready to go out training and arrived in town at the meet up point with everyone else who wanted to join. The sky was now overcast, I really was hoping it wouldn’t rain, we started the jam off at Houses two (New houses) as some people call it. I decided on doing a repetition training day, with my movements today. Doing sets of 15 of a single movement to keep them precise and in good form. Later on I was drilling some old fashioned reverse vaults over a hip sized wall. I had not done any in a very long time and so was scared. In the end they were more like barrel vaults then reverse vaults. Vladimir’s arms and shoulders were looking big today (no homo) I’m envious, damn him, one day I will have the same sized arms! Mark my words Vlad! Yaz was late, arriving wearing his white Freemove t-shirt which was the second time I’ve ever seen Yaz wear white in recent years.

It went against his black jogging bottoms which looked good together. Though it was strange to not see him out in a bold coloured tee, very strange. Tom was doing some kong vaults over the wall, only to then clip both feet (knees) on one of the attempts, falling face first over the wall. Managing to save himself with his hands before hitting the ground. His hands took the impact followed by his knee which hit the ground full force. He got up right after and seemed fine only having a graze on his hand, it looked deep so he said he would go and clean it up before coming back to train. We started to wonder why Tom had not came back once we released he had been gone for some time and maybe he had headed home with Will. It began to not rain, but pour and so we all grabbed our bags and made a dash to Crowne Plaza!

 

Parrish – Cat 180 Precision.

 

We remained at Plaza for most of the day, what with the weather looking set to be rain all day. The rain really came down and flooded the area at one point when all the drains couldn’t cope with the incoming flow of water. People slowly one by one went home due to the day being a washout and I don’t blame them. Some of the guys had gone to the shop and on the return we were admiring Parrish’s long sleeve burgundy top he always wears. I asked if I could try it on followed by Yaz trying it on too, it felt nice and I asked where he had got it from. Parrish said it was from Topman. We all joked about we should all go to Topman and buy the exact same top he worn for the jokes. With this in mind and the weather not letting up, we decided to go on a little shopping spree, only to get there and find out they no longer stocked the top Parrish wore.

So we walked down to UN to train, before we got to the main area Parrish wanted to climb up onto the roofs and ledges that were up there and started to climb up. Once at the top he was telling us how dirty it was and how many feet and foot marks there were. I got some photos of Yaz and James up there before they came back down and Parrish going off to clean his hands which were black. In UN’s main area we were experimenting with doing dive rolls on the small wall, then some of the others had a go at the running upwards catleap. We then went over to the rail precision and started training the downwards ones from the wall to the rail. It was great today as there were so many cars park on the edge of the road beside the rail. If we were to overshoot the rail we would not be running out into the road and get hit by the on coming traffic.

 

Yaz – Hanging Around.

 

After much deliberating we decided to go and train the top of UN car park then go home. We arrived at the top floor only for the heavens to open once again and rain to pour down on us. Parrish wanted to do the big downwards precision so we set up the cameras while he dried his feet before doing it. Once we had a few angles and he was happy that he had done it we moved down a floor into the dry. Shortly afterwards we walked back down and towards Broadmarsh so Yaz could go to Poundland. We said everyone closes earlier to which Yaz didn’t believe, only to find out it was true once in the shopping centre. Stefano and Parrish did some tricks on the floor which acted like a springboard, we then walked up the road and stopped off at the stone circle near the church to train for a while. Parrish was busy doing the downwards precision to roll.

Yaz and Stefano grabbed some food from Sainsburys. Parrish was giving us many speeches about how we can and should do the downwards precision to roll and it’s really easy. No heavy impact or far even if you are tired. This only made everyone laugh and tell him how it isn’t easy and make jokes about what he was saying. Parrish made us go up to the tree to see the squirrel leap and running pincher. At one point two girls were walking past below to which I said loudly ‘Hello ladies’ they turned around looking confused before looking up and at Stefano thinking he had said it! haha. We began to walk up Columbia street and Yaz was moaning about how stupid it was for all the shops to be closed so early! We walked through a close and quiet Vic Centre to the back of it.

All the guards were outside having a smoke and talking and Parrish got up on top of the wall to do a running precision to only get told off by a butch lesbian guard. She was shouting and telling him how it is private property and he can get arrested if she sees him again etc. The other guards were find and just smiled and asked what he was doing. We moved down a bit to the K2P area only to have another Guard come and talk to Stefano and Parrish asking if what they were doing is Freerunning? He said they can’t do it here and that maybe go down to the ice stadium area as that has good architecture. He also said they all hated the lesbian guard which all made us laugh, he said if we came back again he would set her on us as a joke, only for her to that second come round the corner! We walked to the front of Vic Centre and asked Parrish to check out an an ally way we saw and Stefano said he has seen things in there to train on we waited for Parrish to get near the bottom of the ally way before running away giggling like little school girls!

We hid behind a wall and Parrish came round the corner thinking we had left him only to see us when he came past laughing. We then walked back down into the market square. On the way I knocked on a glass bus shelter at a girl who was texting, she turned and thought it was Stefano that had knocked! haha! The second time I had done that to Stef! we went through the back allies looking at some squirrel leaps and catleaps then up through the alleyway short cut up Bridelsmith to the car park near Adams. We explored the top floor before coming down and out and going to Adams we stayed there and chilled talking before deciding to call it a day only for Yaz and Stef to miss the bus when walking to the bus stop. Parrish left to meet his parents. The rest of us hung around until our buses came.

On getting back home and wondering why Tom and Will never came back to train after Tom’s bail I was informed that Tom found it hard to walk to the car let alone drive and had to be taken to QMC, where they told him his hand was broken as well as his knee cap to which his tendon had detached and is why he found it hard to walk! He had to have fluid drained and his arm is now in a cast. They were still deciding weather he will need an operation on his knee or not! Although now they said he won’t need one thankfully.
