Overnight Testing

Well, the night time testing is over. I did not do as well as I would have liked to do. Made some mistakes, and had some forgetful moments. This is usual for me when I am up past my bedtime. Really glad that Master Evins was able to do this tonight. Worried about him today, especially for the Tea Ceremony.

Master's Testing

Went to watch Masters Jackson, Geeson, and Brodie test for their next rank in Goldsboro on Saturday. They did a great job, but didn't give me any great ideas for my breaking routine. Kind of forgot about the Nai Bin Jin forms. Spent some time working on them today. More work to do.

Getting Stronger

Having nagging arm/shoulder injuries for the last 7 months, finally healing up, allowed me to get a personal record today with weight overhead. Close to my body weight (I'm heavy). Spent some time working on my breaking kicks today. Mentor session with Master Evins

Whining

Spent yesterday feeling like an old man. Hurt my hip pretty badly, probably from doing deadlifts. Never had this particular injury, so hoping that ice and rest will heal it up in short time.

Art of War

Don't start no war with me... I have the scoop. I finished my book. Very interesting read. Sun Tzu's book is supposed to be the benchmark by which all military leaders must adhere to acheive success. Most of it seems like common sense type of stuff, but, who knows. We see leaders all the time seem to exhibit no apparent common sense.

Physical Test

Took my physical test today, since I am unable to attend early on Saturday. Feeling pretty sick, but I was able to get through. Running was the hardest part. Couldn't beat my pretest time (7 sec slower). Hope I feel better tomorrow. Too much work to do.

Recovering

No sleep Sunday night. Feeling like I had to throw up most of the afternoon. Still able to work and do some make-up tests. Feel better today, but still not 100%. Got my physical testing tomorrow morning, since we are not able to attend Saturday morning. Hope I feel better tomorrow.

Lesson Learned

Went for a run this weekend, and stopped a few times to get in sets of pushups, situps and plank holds. It is not unusual for me to add burpees or pushups, etc. to my runs. This time, however, I did my situps on the concrete, wearing only shorts and a tshirt (no jacket). I now have two abrasions on my tailbone from the concrete. Bad idea.

Instructor Camp

I can feel that I need to rest. We had a great camp with lots of hard training, late nights and long travel. My body tells me when my immune system is compromised, and I try to listen. No workout this morning for me. Will go for a run shortly. Should be back to full strength tomorrow.

Felt beat up and in a lot of pain this morning. Morning workout went well. Started a new supplement regimen, adding O2 Gold and Bio Charge before and during workouts. Lots of new dynamic kicks with Master Evins. Shoulder not hurting, and back seems better. Even jacked up elbow from last night's BB class isn't hurting much.

Bad Back

Jacked up my back working out yesterday. Back may have been not right before, but it was definitely spasmed up after my car ride home. A lot of power cleans (new PR on Hang Power Cleans). Felt my back getting tight on Toes-to-Bar. Still able to get lots of work in, and plan to today as well. Probably need to hit the Ibuprofen pretty hard today.

Starting to get excited

With so much going on and with deadlines looming, testing will be upon us quickly. I need to start making more headway on my creative things. Think I have a copy of Art of War here somewhere that I have never read. Want to get my book read this week and report written. Also want to get more work done on my creative form for testing.

Double Challenge

So Master Chelley had us do the FB challenge yesterday, but she forgot to have us do the poomse before and after each round. So,... we did the challenge a second time with the poomses. Nice quad burn going there. Also ripped the seam of my pants doing the first set of air squats. LOL With about 4 days to go in my initial 24 day challenge, I have lost 9 lbs. Goal is to loose at least 12 more lbs.

Ice, Ice, Baby

I went out to jog, and the ice was too bad. Hard to even walk. Ended up doing .8 miles of suicides up and down my steep driveway (which was bone dry thanks to my work of the previous days). Also went for a walk and did 150 pushups and 100 situps while outside. Took a little over an hour. Actually nice and sunny today. Probably wait until tomorrow or Tuesday to take pretest.

Tuesday - First Day of Full Cycle Work

Being on the Blackbelt cycle for two years, and having to complete 6 full cycles during that time, has allowed me to get way ahead of schedule just with regular workouts and classes. My goal for this next Black Best test is to be in even better condition. Therefore, I plan to increase my workload as if I am on a brand new cycle, still needing 10 weeks worth of requirements (ie., 10,000 more push-ups and sit-ups, etc.). Today is my first day of full new cycle training.
