Finding the Time to Beat My Stick

Post by Pinky » Sat Jan 31, 2009 10:58 pm

1/31
I've been either sick or out of town for the past few weeks, so I've done next to nothing.

Today, jujitsu, 12-2. We worked on uke waza.

Later in the day I hit the makiwara for 5 minutes or so.

The only thing I've been consistent about this past week is hitting my makiwara. Otherwise, all I've done is go for one run with my wife.

Today, jujitsu, 12-2. Stick beating later in the afternoon.

I've been traveling more and generally very busy.

Last week I did two 15-minute workouts I didn't log. One was my standard circuit of jumping rope, Tekki and C&P. The other was 15 minutes of practicing Jion with a 16 lb weight vest on. (4 lbs had to be removed from my cheap Walmart vest because they were in the way of my elbows.)

At some point last weekend I spent about 20 minutes in a hotel gym doing a little running, DB MP, chin-ups, etc.

Early this morning, 15 minute jump rope/Tekki/C&P circuit.

I'm going to try to switch to more morning workouts due to my schedule now.
