    Splits Are Awesome

    When i was in primary school, there were a lot of kids who did gymnastics. So they could all do the splits. I often felt like the odd one out, just because i couldn't do the splits. I wasn't even close to them, and it didn't matter how much i tried.  I always thought that they...

    I Used to Be Able to Do It..

    Sinking

    Yup, my gym teacher always used to say I had great flexibility. I was so amazed I actually went and looked up what the word meant. I can still dot hem today, and take great pride in making my friends go 'wow' as they see me slowly sink to the floor.

    I Was So Proud

    I got into splits in i think 3 months and when i was doing rythmic gymnastics the girl i was in the same level with had been there for twice as long as me and she still couldnt do the splits. I can do them now without even stretching first and it doesnt hurt a bit. *proud face*

    Sideways But Not Forward Anymore

      I can still do a sideways split really well, but I can't get down quite all the way doing a forward one. Maybe I'm not as flexible as I used to be.

    Forwards and sideways.

    I can rest on my crotch. But I can also stand and get either leg straight above me. It was of great use this ability when I was a pole dancer.
