My ___________ needs work. Insert there what you will. Here are some things I can think of:
There are more, but that’s all my brain can handle right now. Again this morning, I could have slept until about noon, but by some act of God I was able to get up and drag my tired ass to Cindy’s class. She had a deceptively hard workout for us this morning:
Every minute, on the minute, do the following:
- 3 burpees
- 6 clean & jerk (used a 25lb medicine ball)
- 9 sit ups
I completed 11 rounds and failed out on the 12th. I was one sit up away. Incidentally, sit ups still suck for me. I don’t know if I’m getting any faster at them or not, but well, they were very clearly the chink in my armor today. They took up the most time.
After the workout we did some focus mitt stuff, then reviewed our 30 short katas and 20 sparring techniques, then reviewed the 4 empty hand long forms that we learn between yellow and green belt.
Honestly, I had very little energy this morning. I felt cooked after the warm up. Once the workout started, I tried to put my tiredness out of my mind, but my body reminded me every second that it had no juice. I pressed on as hard as I could. I am taking it easy this weekend so that maybe, just maybe my batteries will be slightly charged next week.
