    I have done that workout before, it is a good one. I keep meaning to do it again. It would be harder though if the risk of falling was more than 1.5 inches.

      day 1 Hug Because I love me.

      Balance beam - forward and backward with confidence. CaptainCanuck certainly the height element helps to sharpen the focus! I reckon if I go slowly and don't move on until I've got a move comfortably under my belt, things should be good. I'll keep you in mind, stephenphillips42

      Taekwondo training. Everything seemed fine today after last night's training. Until the thought of actually lifting my legs and putting some oomph into things occurred. I wasn't alone in this! Fortunately, actually doing it wasn't so hard. Some running, only 1 burpee this time, and one set of 20 push-ups. The focus this term is on kicking, so we worked instep, turning, cut, down, and axe kicks. Partner work kicking to pads.

      I know this is too late for Valentine's Day but it was such an aawww moment I had to share it. Friends:

                  day 2 Hug

                  Poomsae training. Warm-up was patterns, again from 4 up. After Koryo, I dropped out and worked my way backwards because I haven't learnt Keumgang yet. Note to self: bloody remember pattern 8!! Problem is, I don't really like this pattern, and I don't know if that's why I find it hard to remember it, or difficulty in remembering it makes me dislike it! It doesn't really matter; either way, I still have to do it properly, and to do it properly I have to remember it. Then technical drills - lower, upper, inner and outer blocks. Then the spinning punch routine from Keumgang. Dizzy-making .


                    Awww for the cuddling kitties, too precious!

                      day 3 Hug Really needed it today.

                      Taekwondo training. Warm-ups: running, lunges, jumps. 20 push-ups by own count. Stretching. Then kicks, 10 es - instep, turning, cut, hook, and axe. Partner-up, and outer crescent kick over partner's hands. Turning kick to Iranian (that's a kicking pad - we're not being mean to people!), then feint kick and punch to Iranian.

                        Poomsae training. Leg day. Started off kicking to pads - snap kick, then jumping or pop kick. I did jumping. Then straight to the Wall for stretching - front then side. Instep prep, then prep and kick x 10 es. Side kick holding wall - 20 es. Holding leg in highest side kick position, then lower leg a little and raise it to touch partner's hand (at highest point) x 20 es. On all four, side kick to wall - 20 es. Finally, a bit of stretching. Leg day is so much fun...

                          Summer decided to come back today which did not make me inclined to go for a 40-minute walk/run. It's been a very mild summer this year, perhaps by way of apology for last summer!! Only a few hot days here and there, and this weekend seems to be one of the warmer times, so the washing dried well and the cats just slept somewhere cool.

                            โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹ day 30 Fighters' Codex Done. I don't know what happened. I had really looked forward to this programme and I did enjoy it, but when I got into it, it no longer really excited me. Perhaps because I had done Iron Born (which I loved) in the middle of it...? No idea. Anyway, this is a good programme and maybe if I had been in a different frame of mind I might have thought more highly of it. There were, indeed, some days that I really enjoyed, others that were okay, none that I disliked.

                            Saw my chiropractor again last week. He's given me a programme of exercises to do to strengthen my back and core (which I thought were pretty good) because he reckons with my degree of hyperflexibility (I suggested hyper-hyperflexbility or ultra-hyperflexibility but he didn't go for either) it is very important that I focus on posture (which I thought I did). So, being told to work on my back and core, and having just finished a programme, I can see a happy confluence here.
