    Worked through some fairly symbolic punch/block drills with the kids.

    Session 1: Footwork: some days everything just works. Feet were feeling really light today, my legs were dying by the end!
    Session 2: 20min run once I finished up work
    Session 3: my arm was cramping bad after work so it was nice to work it out.

    I wiped my plank, push up and burpee badges today. I'll see if, over time, I get them back but otherwise having them there feels like salt.

      I know what you mean. This evening on the way to training I realised that we hadn't done much planking and it's been about a year since I last did a 5-minute plank (at least, that's when I got the badge - might have done one in some challenge or programme or something). Reckon it's time I re-earned it!

        Only got through some drills in the morning before a migraine knocked my out. Let's try again tomorrow.

              Migraines are the worst - hope you feel better soon

                I get fairly frequent migraines, apparently common with other neurological conditions. I take my drugs and it's generally not too bad. Some days they kick my arse...important to remind me who's boss

                Session 1: rolls
                Session 2: the slowest run ever. Left it to late and the sun was frying the earth.
                Session 3: only stretching today

                  Glad you're feeling better!

                    Swings and round abouts Anek , thanks.

                    Session 1: shadow boxing
                    Session 2: 180 Burn (ups to Shikari for unearthing!), I tried it with 180degree ape hops. Works out as a quickie averaging ~1:30/set and does the trick.
                    Session 3: My arm is slightly shitty. Not up to any more ape hops yet and certainly not after doing low force arm stuff earlier. Gave it a stretch session but no more weight bearing today.

                    Skipping...only with my son. My daughter went conveniently MIA!

                      Session 1: Overhaul (with march twists instead of march steps), only L1 because 6x 20s plank holds is outer limit of what I can do right now...without a boat load of anti-inflamatories and regret. Then footwork.
                      Session 2: Hot foot followed by abs. Included hollow holds and leg lifts. My kids came over and tried to hold my legs "you look like that hurts!!" They seemed unconvinced by my argument that it was just discomfort and it would make me stronger
                      Session 3: Stretching and singing sea shanties with the kids. I'm pretty sure I know all the words to Wellerman now!

                      Kids: More skipping!! I've worked out a nice routine to break up the skipping just enough to keep them at it. I got them both today too. Apparently my arm can ache while skipping if I have used it...fun!

                        Started with the kids today. Took them through some foot work drills (Child who usually moves like a gazelle starts clomping like an elephant: "I don't know what 'spongy' knees are!" then "but my knees can't spring!!") and then a cut down jits yoga flow.

                        Session 1: My own footwork drills...some days even 10min of these leave me feeling really out of shape
                        Session 2: 20ish min run. In a demonstration of my grace and agility...I strained my ankle after it sunk into a hole covered in grass (complete with falling on my arse) at ~10min mark. Fortunately after a bit of a limping wobble I managed to work it out and get it done. Pleased not to have actually injured my ankle as that would have left me with only activities that didn't require my left arm or right ankle
                        Session 3: Yoga including down dog, cobra and camel. Maybe not exciting to most but all the successful weight bearing through my arm is making me feel like a kid on red cordial.
                        I did cut one section short when I felt it approaching challenge. No need to push my luck after the short bit of plank action yesterday.

                          This remembers me of when I once broke my foot and encountered a colleague from work in the hospital. On the last day of a ski trip she skied into a tree or building, breaking an arm and a leg. She spend the first days (when the swelling has to go down and you do not get a walking cast yet) after the accident in a wheelchair at home, looking out of the window, waiting for someone to come by to help her get to the toilet every 3 hours and being tortured by her cats, who thought this was an excellent opportunity to walk all over her.

                          Don’t get injured in two places.

                            I feel for your friend AnnieW !
                            In high school I fractured my ankle and stairs and the bathroom (any tiled rooms really) became my nemesis. It didn't help that my dad is an "adversity makes you stronger" type. We went on a family camping trip with me wobbling around on crutches. Maybe dad will come back as a cat if reincarnation is actually real

                            Yeah, very grateful I didn't do my ankle and need to try to use crutches with only 1 arm! I don't think a wheelchair would fit through some of our doorways...​​​​​​​

                              Session 1: Feeling low on motivation, so started easy with Hot foot.
                              Session 2: Jits drills, got reassessed today- looking like I can try training again this week!
                              Session 3: Making steady gains in strength and range. I definitely have both feet on the road to rebuilding now.

                                Yesterday and today I have been busy doing my shoulder strength and flexibility work to hit my targets for getting back to training.
                                Since the rehab stuff alone is now taking at least 30mins/day. I'm shuffling it so I'm still doing 3 sessions but #1 & #3 are flexibility mixed with cardio and #2 is strength with core.

                                It seems to be working. The definition across my shoulders and back is slowly improving...important to maintain my ego after it got all deflated
