I’m at home today, not well. So here’s a brief post.

I keep forgetting what this is called: Parkour closely related to Free running. Basically pedestrianism for superhumans.

This video from Top Gear shows it off well. You can skip the first minute if you’re not interested in the Peugot 207 that James May is racing against the Parkour guys.

(Available here in high resolution.)

I know for a fact I’d never be fit enough to able to do it, and I’m betting it takes a lot of training to achieve it and avoid injury.

Remarkable stuff.

Almost exhausting just watching it. I’m going back to bed.
