    My coach keeps saying that Repetition is the Mother of Skill. So I'm upping my repetitions. After all, the Great BL says this:

          Programme:
          ​ day 25 Hero's Journey Did my three weaons. Whose idea was it to choose three? Oh right, mine. Took a nice long walk for the Bow - bit of a stiff chilly breeze, though. I was glad when the third set of the Ring was over - seemed to last longer than Wagner's!

            Day 157

            Challenges:
            Punches and Squats (day 13)
            Upper Body Plus (day 3)
            Glutes of Steel (day 2)

            Programme:
            ​ day 26 Hero's Journey Yuk, burpees. 30 of 'em each set! Whose cruel idea was that?! I didn't get around to this until later this afternoon and I lazily thought, ah, I'll leave it til tomorrow. But I knew that when tomorrow came, there'd still be 30 burpees each set waiting for me. So I set my teeth and got through it. And surprisingly, it wasn't so bad. Not good, mind you, but not so bad.

            DD with EC = 129. Total DD = 130.

            Splits app - Intermediate (day 16)
            Front kick prep hold - 10 x 10-secs
            Resistance band walks - straight leg and bent leg (wow! doesn't that really burn the outer thighs!)
            Leg Stretcher - 5-mins
            Online Taekwondo training - poomsae 60-minutes. Elisabeth couldn't come for the general training this morning so I did one of the poomsae classes instead. I'm two behind. I'm glad I only read her text when I was wondering why she was late. I was already in my dobok, you see, and that made it a lot easier to just do the poomsae class.

              Yup, that reaction makes sense, no one likes burpees but good on you for powering through!

                Day 158

                Challenges:
                day 14 Punches and Squats
                day 4 Upper Body Plus
                day 3 Glutes of Steel
                (Got tired of the inconsistency of my formatting!)

                Programme:
                ​ day 27 Hero's Journey I must be pretty damn dangerous if someone sends seven assassins after me! Fortunately they came at me one by one, and (also fortunately) the final one was so tired from the waiting that I was able even to wipe him out. I think, though, in a comp, a few of those last side kicks would have got me some deductions for being too low!

                DD with EC = 129. Total DD = 130.

                day 17 - Splits app - Intermediate
                Front kick prep hold - 10 x 10-secs
                Side kick prep hold - 10 x 5-secs
                Resistance band walks - straight leg
                Leg Stretcher - 5-mins
                Stance drill - L-stance -> long stance -> horse x 40

                Miss_Dada A cow? This is SO a frog! Just look at those eyes!

                  I'd vote cow over frog, looks like it has a muzzle/snout TopNotch
                  Seven assassins does sound extreme...you must have really got on someone's goat .

                    Io6 Okay, I admit if you change your focus, it could look like a cow, but if you take the "cow's" ears as eyes, it is SO a frog. Which makes so much more sense given how it's hopping.

                      Is this Australian humor?

                      Comment


                        We are having a serious discussion about art, perception and interpretation as it relates to Darebee Smilies I'll have you know Fremen ...I haven't taken the piss out of TopNotch yet today!
                        Australian humour is some of the finest in the world

                          Sure it’s a frog. Sure it is

                            Honestly, some people have NO imagination.

                              Wait a minute... I see the frog now! How did you—how on earth did you spot that?

                                day 4 and 5 Glutes of Steel Two days today to catch up with Upper Body+

                                Programme:
                                ​ day 28 Hero's Journey With armour.

                                DD with EC = 130. Total DD = 131.

                                day 18 - Splits app - Intermediate
                                Front kick prep hold - 10 x 10-secs
                                Resistance band walks - straight leg
                                Leg Stretcher - 5-mins
                                Pattern 5, station 1 x 10
                                Online Taekwondo training - general 50-min class. Elisabeth couldn't make it again today so I did all my other programmes close on this class' heels and everything was over and done before lunch.

                                With the leg stretcher, I've been counting the number of turns of the wheel to check my consistency (and 29 turns seems to be full side splits). Today I was interrupted while counting but thought I had counted correctly anyway. I was surprised at how inflexible I was today - and just after the splits app too! I was apparently two turns less than I had been yesterday. But when I wound it back in, I found I had miscounted and I was actually one turn more than yesterday! I wound it out again to check and yep, that was so.
