I DID IT!
I climbed to the very tippy-top of the pole and SMACKED the ceiling beam! MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME!!
Apparently that pole is at least 13 feet tall, so WOO-HOO!! I knew by the 3rd climb that I could do it. The pole was cool to the touch but not super cold and making my grip non-existent.
According to one of my teachers, I could be ready for Inverting as soon as I touched the ceiling. I think I’m going to wait until I can climb to the ceiling on BOTH left and right sides. My left side is super wimpy and I need to build up those bruises.
BUT THAT MEANS I CLIMBED TO THE CEILING WITHIN 6 MONTHS OF TAKING POLE CLASSES!
I’m so proud of myself 🙂
