    Push-ups app.

    Poomsae training. Last class for three weeks. Went through patterns, then focussed on mine. My Grading is tomorrow.

    Finally for all the furniture hauled up the stairs to the Little Lad's new bedroom. It's easier taking things down the stairs than up, especially when there is a landing and a corner halfway up! Phew! But it is finally done and now I can get back to normal.

      ​ Taekwondo training. And Grading. Again, a different Grading from usual. I hadn't done much else today except focus on my Pattern as those who were grading to a new belt (I believe I was the only one at this Centre) would have especial scrutiny! So pretty much every moment I had today I was either working on the Pattern or studying the online video to make sure I had the timing right. And I was happy with it. No more classes, though (except for the Online ones) for three weeks now. ​ Ah well, that should give time for my hamstring to recover further. It's not so bad now - I can kick my leg above waist-height now! - but anything with speed and power is still very difficult.

      The children graded today as well. Belts in age-order (I'm red now).

                        Kind of a slack day, exercise-wise. I spent much of it in the kitchen, cleaning and baking. Tomorrow, my eldest becomes a teen-ager! Where did that time go? So, baking for her party. She did some, I had to do the rest. Zesty lemon bars and a baked chocolate cheesecake. Never made a baked one before, and it cracked, but that's okay because it will get covered with chocolate ganache anyway so nobody will see the cracks. And while the festivities are going on, I can relax with a nice cuppa, some baked goods, and my Darebee to choose which workouts I will be doing over the next three weeks until Taekwondo resumes. I want to focus on tendon strength, really work on my hamstrings. I'll follow the splits app again, too, because I felt that really helped with my flexibility and that's suffered over the last couple of months because of this darn hammy! But I'll get back there with a bit more work.

                            ​ day 17 Gladiator Couldn't quite remember what I was up to here but thought it must be 1min 40sec by now as last time I had to do the one-arm plank it was 1:20 but I was ahead of myself and it was supposed to be 1:20 again today. Still, I'm sure my body didn't mind. I quite like planking. But I don't think I'll challenge the World Record - I do have a Life!

                            Forgot that some parents like to stay for a bit when they bring their children over, especially if you've never met before, so it was a slower start to my plan than anticipated. Then I just got my first cup of tea and sat down with Darebee when a swarm of girls descended, demanding food. Once all that had been dealt with and I drank my somewhat tepid cup of tea, I managed to get a few workouts down. I haven't really had the time to go through Darebee stuff recently - there's a lot of new stuff, PLUS another new programme coming out!! Then the girls were back, demanding cake. How come only four more girls increased the noise level to the equivalent of a jet's taking off?! Finally all that was dealt with, and the noise had receded upstairs. I sat down with my second cup of tea, and there was a knock at the door because parents were arriving to collect their daughters. Where had the day gone? A couple of hours later, though, my new teenager made me a nice cup of tea that I managed to drink while it was still hot!
