In this Channel 4 documentary short entitled “Daughters and Fathers, Sawdust in My Veins” we get to take a closer look at Chi Chi Revolver and her father Fred Delius. They share their passion for both family and the circus arts, and be prepared to be mesmerized by Chi Chi’s multiple and single hoop skills. Their story of starting their own circus is pretty exciting. They live in Worthing, England, UK. View full size & like/comment on hooping.org.

So wonderful!!

Going to try out a new stretching class in my town in a minute. If it’s any good I might make it a weekly thing.

Did my first Zombies, Run! run today. It’s annoying that there doesn’t seem to be like a distance given for each mission so I kept running and had no idea how long I would have to run for and by the time I started getting completely out of breath dying I was almost home anyways so technically didn’t get to the end of my first mission, I ran up and down the road until I got to 2km and gave up, no idea what that means for the collectibles. I realised if I just start it again it goes to my last point in the mission though.

I only did just over a mile but I never run, I hate running and my cardio is terrible. It was kind of fun other than the whole not knowing how long you’ll have to run for thing. Need to try and find out how far each mission is supposed to be. I think there are variables like what direction you take at points in the storyline but I dunno?

Going to teach hooping shortly. Then I have a dinner party to go to at Lizzies (the-crane-dance)!!

I’ve been using that that app for about a year! You’re doing the normal version, right?

It can be a little frustrating to not know how long each run is, because it mostly goes by the songs that are in your playlist. (Because the clips play between every song. It’s not a storyline thing, don’t worry!) So, if you have a lot of short songs, the mission will be shorter, etc. Thus they can’t really have a set time with how long you mission is going to be.

They also can’t do it by distance because not everyone is running outside. They also have modes for treadmill and you can turn off the GPS period. With people who are beginning runners, it might be a turnoff to be forced to run a distance you’re not yet comfortable with. You’re free to run, walk, whatever you like! And you get better over time.

So yeah, it sucks, but I think that doing it like that lets people of all kinds of runners and places take part it in. My runs, usually a whole mission, are usually between 33-40 minutes on average. And, you can always resume the mission if need be ^_^

(Sorry for the long response to a perhaps rhetorical question… )

If you’re wanting something a bit more structured though, there is also the ZR 5K trainer. It takes place between M1 and M3 of Season 1 and it does actually tell you exactly when to run and when to walk to get you up to a 5K trainer and it also tells you how long each mission will be.

Thanks for the extra info guys, yeah I didn’t realise they had the 5k one until after and it’s more money right? So I don’t know if I also want to pay for that one also. Specially as I know from when I trained for Dirty Weekend that within a few runs I can be confidently running for half an hour. Today I took 20 minutes to do just over a mile. Ridiculous!!! And I was dying the whole time.

How do you get your own music on there? Because I couldn’t figure it out and ran in silence. It asked for a playlist but there wasn’t any options? I might have to google it!

When you start to value your life and do things to improve it - it also improves the lives of the people around you who actually care. The unhealthy people bringing you down slip away but those who stick around can be motivated and influenced by you to also live better lives. Plus y’know you pick up new badass friends along the way.

It’s kind of beautiful.

Finally found something I do completely backwards! My split grip Ayesha is done with my left hand down which is weird because I do my butterfly and extended with my right hand down. I just can’t balance that way in the Ayesha though. Tried it the other way and BAM. Had it.

Which is your strong arm? I use left on the bottom for everything split grip, because frankly the weight should be hanging from your top arm in split grips, the bottom arm just providing a bit of support.

Edit: When I say hanging I don’t mean your shoulder…always keep that engaged. But it should be the top arm doing the most work.

I feel like there needs to be like a pole gossip website though for real.

Okay so I wasn’t much on Facebook in the past few days but WHAT? Anastasia Skukhtorova broke up with Evgeny Greshilov? Holy shit! I so have to make it to that workshop of his in November haha

But seriously. I know this is gossip but I really loved watching them train together. What a shame. Hope they’re both happy. Such inspiring artists, both of them.

Did you see what she specifically wrote about it? How she reconnected with an old friend, fell madly in love and they’re getting married like a month later (I sound judgey but really I am not being judgey, maybe they’re old loves, soul mates, or maybe she’s being horrific I don’t know). Funnily enough I didn’t even know she was with Evgeny Greshilov anyways! I’m sooo out of the loop with everything most of the time.

I think in the past I really liked tumblr because I could just be myself and only a select group of people I know in real life would see what I posted and the rest would go out to whomever cared but I wouldn’t worry what people I don’t even know think..

And recently I haven’t been as interested. I still share things but in actuality I share things on facebook far more often now. Like I’m not worried about just being me. I’m still a little careful simply because my facebook account is apart of my business but yeah. It’s kinda nice to just be me on there.
