Get ready, set, run!

Helloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Just came back from atlethics practice. It’s turning out to be really fun and I’ve made new goals I wanna accomplish bythe end pf the year. I wanna run the 100 meters in 12:50, and I wanna improve my long jump distance. This class was interesting, my coach started teaching me to do the pole vault. I love that incredible feeling those few seconds you’re in the air, feels like you’re flying but then of course BAM the feeling ends when you hit the mattress. This year in atlethics im gonna try and focus on these three things (sprints, long jump, and pole vaulting) and hopefully improve.

Today’s practice was a good two hours and I was thankful that there was a nice breeze today cause it was VERY hot. I’m back sweaty, sticky and red but for some strange reason it gives me a good feeling as if saying I did my best.

Now im off to go to the supermarket and buy my cake ingredients. So I can make a yummy vanilla cake…. and decorate it (my favorite part).

See ya’ll later ;D

Oh and if you didn’t know what pole vaulting is this is what it looks like. It looks reallly easy, but trust me it’s pretty tricky till you get the hang of it.

And this is long jump. The point is to jump as far as you can without passing the line before you jump.

Riding right with the wind ♥

This afternoon I went with my parents and a friend to the outsides of the city. Our plan was to go horseback riding and later go and eat somewhere.

Well my friend didn’t know how to ride a horse so she went with a guy that would help her and I went with my dad separetley. Well five minutes into the ride my horse started going insane. He starts running really fast down a road and it seemed that he did the opposite of what I was telling him to do (I could have sworn he was mocking me) but maybe thats just me overreacting, hey! I had no control over him so I was thinking about jumping off. Right when I’m about to jump I hear this long “Nooooooooooo”. It was my dad, and surprisingly enough the horse calmed down right after. It was pretty scary, I thought I would’ve had to jump and that could have been pretty painful.

Well apart from that little incident the ride was so amazing. It feels so good to gallop really fast, hair flying everywhere, sun shining, and wind hitting your cheeks. The feeling is incredible. It almost feels as if you were in some other world where you can’t hear or see anybody else.

We then went to eat lunch at some local restaurant and on the way back, we just sang and acted really goofy. Today was a preciouse memory that I hope I’ll never forget…

A summer day :)

This morning I woke up, got my ipod and just searched for new tunes to listen to online. Then I got my swim suit and got all ready to go to the pool to find out my mom had taken all the water out to clean the pool D: …

So apperently my plan to go swimming was ruined so I’m about to go for a bike ride with my dogs ;D.

Since I’m not doing track at the stadium or at school Im gonnna bring along my track shoes so I can practice my starts at the park around my house. Yeah I’m gonna get serious on track now. I’m gonna try and stay everyday of the week that I can, and try to improve my times.
