Hold a Handstand for One Minute

Part of my 100 Things Challenge:

When I was younger, for a brief period in my teens, I was a competitive gymnast. Part of my whole kick about getting shape is about feeling vibrant and athletic again. I loved gymnastics (and before you ask, my best events were floor, rings and vault) and loved having the ability to do five back handsprings in a row and finish off with a back tuck.

This challenge is a little more tame -- hold a handstand for one minute-- but will require a lot of practice, muscle and balance.  I expect I won't even be able to hold a proper handstand for a few seconds until late spring.
