I’m not even sure how training logs are supposed to work, I admit that right away (Yeah, I read the sticky) It’s my first time ever to even try that. May be it will work out, maybe it won’t. But without trying I’ll never know, so... :dunno: But since I need to work on a lot of things and it seems that this year will be getting even more serious it might be some sort of help. Among others I need to stop thinking too much, need to get more flexible again (that has gotten worse, since I strained my left groin), my condition needs to get wayyyy better, I need to gain strength, ... Well, it’s so much I just know I have forgotten something already. I also need to find the discipline to keep doing my “homework” regarding my physiotherapy to straighten my back and such. I thought about trying to use this log as a way to keep my training in check and remember some things I might forget otherwise. (There we have it: The first thing I forgot: I have to take more notes again!) I’m not sure yet, why I can’t do that with a word document, but I will find an excuse, I’m sure Maybe this way I will be more successful to actually keep doing everything... well, half the things I want to do; and not the comfortable or likeable half! I thought about starting that now, because: Hey, it’s a new year. I probably get more responsibility with the kids, and I learned in the end of last year, that at least one of my teachers expects more from me than from the others (it does have his good sides! So I was allowed during a seminar he gave, not only to be his uke to show the techniques, but he also send me out to correct the others and explain whatever necessary. It was kind of funny to stand in front of blackbelts and not only correct them but them also asking me question! ), so it’s about time, that I do the same and take my own training even more serious, than I do so far. Not that I didn’t took it serious before, I sure did, but I hope to learn to be more daring and try things I don’t know yet or can’t do properly – which is really difficult for me; especially, when I know I can’t do it and therefore will only be a disappointment. Over the time I also have to decide how to handle my Judo-training: It’s Wednesdays at the same time as ATK. I can still do ATK on Fridays, but would obviously miss the lesson on Wednesdays. I do have to work on my throws though and can implement a lot of Judo into the JJ-kids-training. I thought about doing Judo and ATK in rotation or doing Judo twice and ATK once, then Judo twice again and so on. I will also go to the dojo after Judo, so I can practice something there after the ATK-class; not sure what yet as obviously for the most I’d need a partner, but there should be enough I can do alone. I might also add some solo-training before the kids-classes sometimes, but I’m not sure yet. After all – for most -especially for the most important things I need to be working on- I do need a partner after all. Actual throws, for example, are hard to do solo Anyway, I just look and try to get a start; for that I will split the last days up into different posts; therefore I say right away: Sorry, that there is a flood of text right away!
