After the Trials I did a couple of beach vaults before getting off my feet. I didn't have any spectacular performances, but I did end the season feeling extremely confident for next year. I also met with Neil Chasan, of the Sports Reaction Center, in early August and figured out the reason my foot had been hurting for months was due to a stress reaction in my 5th metatarsal. So I am currently in the middle of 6 weeks of no running or jumping. So I have been doing some cross training on the bike, elliptical, and other equipment at the gym. I have also been lifting like crazy and getting pretty damn strong, maybe the strongest I have ever been.
The summers are short here in Seattle so I have been taking advantage of the nice weather by hitting the water often. I have been learning to wakeboard with our friends and doing flips off the diving boards as much as I can. I also had the opportunity to try trapeze at the Boeing Picnic that Lois' brother Josh brought us to. It was awesome! Here is a quick video to recap my summer thus far.
