This weekend was pretty good.
I woke at up 4:45 on both Saturday and Sunday. (My alarm is set for 5:10 AM) Sheesh…
Eat breakfast, check email and websites, do a little exercise (push-ups or stairs or something for like 15 minutes), and commute 40 mins to work.
And then I ALWAYS crash at 8 AM, RIGHT as I’m about to start teaching. Anyway, teach teach teach….and then one of my students called in sick, so I got a 90 minute free period. I lay down on the sofa in the teacher’s lounge and fell FAST asleep for 30 minutes. 😀 Then woke up and went back to work. Finished a little early, at 5 instead of 5:30. Went to the gym at 7, and NOBODY was there. It’s so frustrating to show up, wanting to practice, knowing everyone gets in SO late. 🙁 So at about 7:30 Hatano-san showed up, along with one beginner. He said, “Okay let’s start with the jab!”
;___; He saw my sad-face and said, “What?” and I said, “Well, just…I’m trying to train for a fight…” and he goes, “uh….” and I said, “Well, I don’t want to bother the class…” and he said, “That’s okay, okay we’ll do this counter move off ground and pound.”
He showed me this SUPER COOL REALLY useful move that I LOVE and fits right into my game! 😀 I’m so excited. I’m calling it “The Hatano Switch” and I wanna pull it off in the fight. So I grabbed this German? guy Flo and we drilled it a ton. Then more people showed up and held mits for each other, but Flo offered to help me train because I didn’t want to do striking. He’s pretty good, so we sparred for a while. Then Masa-san (Masatoshi Abe, Abe’s little brother) showed up and showed some wrestling moves, and we did that.
My body was pretty beat up, so I soaked in the Gold’s Gym hot tub, and then went home.
Sunday, I worked from 8 AM to about 3:30, and then headed to the Oimachi Gold’s Gym. There, I lifted some weights with my Sauna Suit on. I also tried going INTO the sauna with the suit, to see how it felt. My first thought: “Boy, it’s hot in here.”
LOL So I lifted lightly, went on the eliptical for a little bit, and then weighed myself again. Wow, those things make you sweat. I thought, “This isn’t so bad…” When I had first weighed myself, I was 59.7 kilos. When I weighed myself after an hour, I was 59.8 kilos.
Uh, something must be wrong with the scale…
This morning, I train with Sean Frew:
Maybe AACC in the evening. Then, Tuesday, I train with Kunioku-san again! 😀 We have been training on and off, but recently we’ve started resuming regular training.Details
