    My best behind the neck jerk (like in 2014) was 80. One day I'll get close again

    Yeah so on the week of the 17th I went to judo.

    Not in randori, but just in general but baby steps.

    we practiced turnovers from opponent on belly. I need to work on these as I can't hit them in randori.

    We drilled half guard escapes - judos emphasis on new a is equivalent to the bjj emphasis on tachiwaza. There's a lot broad concepts taught but not details. So my half guard escapes - head pin and hips highs or side switch or bottom lapel side sit - and sweeps are okay for judo - I always play whizzer dog fight to deep half guard to electric chair sweep or 50/50 knee bar sweep (not applying knee bar)

    We did some tachiwaza with white belts and I attempted seoi nage several times. I was failed all. I got the ones I alway get (standard back drop and tomo nage). Tried uchi mata twice. My Mat and gi movement is less solid but not very fluid.

    We did tag team newaza and I pinned all white belts and the blue belt. Almost pinned black belt for the required time but he escaped and I got back control but lost it for guard and he cartwheel passed out in tiredness and frustration.

    The 19th I went to BJJ Nd wrestling focusing on armband set up drilling and grip flow wrestling. The this was on an unavoidable 3 hours sleep and RSI flared hard. Was trying not to cry while holding my elbows between drills. Haven't trained since cos too painful

    This warrents the dancing banana emoji that old board used to offer - But in lieu of that, I'll just say nice one sir!

    That will be £50 for the internet coaching :)
    Drop seoi nage is easier to hit than ippon normally in randori, to hit the full one you need a good backward throw to get them moving and to set up

    So I haven't updated in a while but I need to start working on doing seoi nages and kochi garish in randori.

    I need to stop doing the comfortable tomo nages and just be more confident, and even in failure.

    I went to a no gi interclub with a judo team mate.

    She threw so easily and swiftly which has convinced me to really push my gi tachiwaza.

    I was getting entries for seoi nages but were too scared to try them. Instead I tried to feint an inside double leg and slide to single but got sprawled and flattened. I didn't even try out throw after that which was silly.

    I'm concentrating on improving my stand up skills for a while where as my team mate wants to work on her groundwork (she got subbed by a smother because she kept going to turtle cos judo)

    Will also need work on more sweeps and guard passing. Going to attend Sunday beginner's bjj now.

    And yes I have videos.
    The only person I even had a ground fight with was 20kg lighter than me.
    One opponent would not engage on the ground, and another was great and hit me with a DWL throw so I was subbed as soon as I hit the ground.

    Seoi Nage is the answer to everything.

    I still think you looked alright. You hand fought well, forced his neck clinch off you.
    The DWL takedown sub was slick. Hard luck but props for getting in there.

    Personal update with COVID - before covid i was close to my blue belt (i could taste it), i was causing a lot of trouble for other belts, no problem defending myself, had takedown sequences from teh armdrag that lead to seoi nages and uchi mata and single leg picks. i was getting anxiety attacks on bottom but was working on that (that was a general metnal thing) and had entered more competitions.

    Now with Covid I'm trying to improve my running time, I'm looking to apply to the police (bit of a pay cut but worth the shift).
    Need to pass a driving test (gettign lessons) and I'd like to sell my flat and move.

    Currently my 1.5 mile time is around 15 to 16 minutes.
    The goal is an 8 minute mile so 12 minutes total.
    So I'm on a program.

    Friday 7th August 2020:
    Run and stretch fo 5 mins

    superset (x6):
    400m at 2 minutes per 400m
    50 diaphragm breathes through my nose (childhood asthma makes nose breathing painfgul and unnatural)

    5x M, box and sprint drills
    Easy 2 miles jog in 20 to 22 minutes

    My wife knocked a chunk off her 5k times with a class that focused on intervals on a track, so it's well worthwhile trying that. Not sure your intervals match what she did, but different goals obviously. Knowing you I imagine you've done your research :)

    1.5 miles @8 minute miles is definitely achievable for someone of your age and fitness a little bit of work and you'll smash it!

    Good luck :)

    first 5k i ran was 2 weeks ago hahaha
    Eeven in high school i could never consistenly run for more than 1 km and this is the first time ive picked up running in 10 years (since i first joined MAP!)
    ive noticed that most difficult thing is finding a steay pace.
    I found a program online that specialises in improving 1.5 and 2 mile times so i hope so Mitch!
    Thank you for your support! I'm avoiding sharing my goals on facebook or other platforms as i dont want my family to crap on me if i dont pass all the tests (yeah they arent the healthiest of my relationships)

    Was sujpposed to run 30 miutes nonstop at 2:00 off mile pace so around 3 miles in 30 minutes.
    Instead I was left with 0.5 of a mile after 30 minutes and somehow finished that last half mile in 6 minutes.
    So 3 miles in 36 minutes total. Thats a 12 minute mile which is pretty crap. Need to imprave that.

    Going to repeat this week again next week.

    Good to see you posting on here again!

    Those 400m interval runs really help the 5k times, I used to have 1 or 2 of those sessions a week (out of 5) which were 400m, and sometimes one would be hill sprints (100-200m) then 3min walking or slow run rest (usually based on HR dropping to a specific level). Each week I would had another set.

    Surprisingly to me at the time, I found adding walking to the week helped a lot, 2-3 times a week with 2+ mile walk. The years I was doing that I had the best results in 10k races.

    Good luck with that progress :)

    Thanks Guys!
    Check where i slowed down on my run i think:
    1. I was slow at the start of my run.
    2.. i didnt record time properly and was faster than i thought.

    I looked up drills for running forms too and probably need to:
    1. up my cadence and monitor im getting 30 steps with my right foot every 20 seconds (180 steps wiht both feet per minute)
    2. lift and drop to learn the pose running method per this video:
