...if you miss, you will land among the stars."--Les Brown
I'm an equestrian vaulter (see picture) from CO, I do gymnastics and some CF on the side. A few weeks ago I unexpectedly won a big competition, so my coaches just moved me up to the highest division. The top three women qualify for World Equestrian Games next year; it's unlikely that I'll make it, but I want to push myself as hard as I can, and just see what happens, and how far I can get. This seems like a really open-minded and dedicated community, I'm posting here so I can't make excuses.
So, my plan is:
*Train like a madwoman--conditioning 5 days/week, stretching 6 days/week, 2-3 hours vaulting 6 days/week. Cross-training 3-4 days/week.
*Lean up by 6-10 lbs in the next 2 months--accomplish this by eating loose Paleo.
Here I go, good luck to everyone else with their journey as well.
