New year, new goals, new awards ๐Ÿ† and the first England ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ Squad of a new decade!

Hello again.ย  Hereโ€™s my new blog for 2020!ย 

The start of the new year was not great for me as I was ill with tonsillitis. It was really hard to try and get better and keep up a bit of training. My energy was so low and I was really tired. I was really not well ๐Ÿ˜”. I got through it though and Iโ€™m feeling much better.

In the gym weโ€™ve set our goals for the year.ย 

I am 12 years old now and by the end of this decade Iโ€™ll be 22. I wonder what I might have achieved in the world of gymnastics in that time. It’s crazy!ย

12-5pm I had a great session. My legs were bouncy today. ๐Ÿคธโ€โ™‚โ€

It was the Falcons Gymnastics Academy Awards night!!! It was great to wear a dress, do my hair and make up and then spend the evening with my family and my lovely gym friends. The little ones are so cute! I danced with them. I like being friends with them too.

 

I was nominated for Hardest Worker Female, Most Promising Gymnast Female, Female Gymnast of the Year 2019 and Gymnasts Gymnast.

I won Female Gymnast of the Year 2019 and Gymnasts Gymnast. These awards are so special to me. I am so happy.

Sun day off

Monday 13 January. 4.30-8.30pm. Yes, I had quite a good day today!!! Three clean bars routines, my vaults were good, I did 5 clean circuits (my tumbles and leaps without the dance) and had a good beam session. A good good day. โ˜บ Iโ€™ll try and enjoy this feeling ๐Ÿ˜‚

Tues 4-8.30pm. My legs were a bit dead today ๐Ÿ˜‚ but it was OK.

I am listening to โ€˜Donโ€™t stop me nowโ€™ by Queen to go to bed to now. I love it. Itโ€™s an upbeat positive feeling song for the year ahead. ๐Ÿ‘

Weds off

Thurs 5-9pm I worked super hard. I put my double tuck into my routine on floor. โ˜บ I had a great session. โ˜บ

Fri I am tired, but I trained 10-5!

Sat 12-5pm Good session.

Sun A lovely stay at home day! ๐Ÿ˜‚ โ˜บ My new song at the moment is โ€˜This is realโ€™. I think this is my motivational song for the new year. (‘I’ll be holding on, holding on’ ‘Never gonna give you up’)

Mon 20 Jan 4.30-8.30pm

Tues 4-8.30pm

Weds off

Thurs 5-9pm I had a good training day to get me ready for England Squad this weekend.

Saturday 25 January

I wore my England Squad leo. We met Kelly at the University and trained from 10.30am-5pm.

I had good sessions. I hope tomorrow goes well.

 

Sun

I wore the leo that is called my name, Felicity Rainbow! ๐ŸŒˆ ๐Ÿ˜‚ Itโ€™s from SJ Pro.

I had a good first gym session. I did a double twist off beam onto a mat and did two bar routines in a row.

The warm up is like doing conditioning ๐Ÿ˜‚ I get so hot and sweaty as itโ€™s hard work.

We did lots of dances, and had a dance lady teacher.

At squad I also did two double crouch spins on beam. โ˜บ ๐ŸŽ‰

I shared a room with two girls I know. They are nice friends.

My hands hurt. I have so many rips. My poor hands. ๐Ÿ˜”

At this squad I did my competition skills! โ˜บ It was a really fab squad for me. ๐Ÿ˜

At the end of the day Kelly drove me home.

I had yummy roast pork (and apple sauce, my favourite) and homemade cookies waiting for me at 9.30pm when I got home. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Mon 27 January

I am so tired today. ๐Ÿ˜” I had to get up and go to school. I was really tired after school. I didnโ€™t know how I was going to do gym ๐Ÿ˜” but I could finish an hour early. Gym 4.30-7.30pm. I actually had a brilliant session. Guess what I did! I landed three triple twists on track into pit with one mat. ๐ŸŽ‰

 

It kind of felt weird today back in our gym on the equipment as Iโ€™d got used to the Loughborough gym! ๐Ÿ˜‚

Tues I wasnโ€™t feeling well this morning but at gym 4-8.30 I did more triple twists to land. Two bar routines, my yercheko straights on vault were more upright when I landed in the pit.

Weds off

At school I made my speaker in a small Pringles tin. It worked! I can plug it into my phone and use it to play music for me to dance to ๐ŸŽถ.

Thurs 5-9pm I needed to do three circuits on floor and two clean routines on floor.

We are going to Portugal in August for a gymnastics training camp. Itโ€™s really exciting. I think Iโ€™ll need to pack lots of crop tops and shorts ๐Ÿ˜‚ Iโ€™m saving up my money as itโ€™s going to cost lots of money. Maybe I could sell some leotards to raise some cash!

Fri 10-5pm.

1st session I did bars including my ktatchevs , and a bit on beam.

2nd session I had to do vault, floor, bars and beam. I did my one and half punch straight on floor in my routine.

Iโ€™m trying to work really hard and I need to keep working hard and to keep focused and positive and keep getting my routines ready for competition season. My big competitions are the English Championships ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ in London and British Championships ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง in Liverpool in April. ๐Ÿ’ช ๐Ÿคž

Thanks for reading my blog and supporting me on my gymnastics journey.

Fliss x
