Conditioning:

- 250 kettlebell swings in 17 mins. 20kg KB. Not a cracking pace, but I'm still sweating 60mins later.

 

Not gonna lie, that's impressive. I'd do 80 over 5 minutes or so, with a 16kg KB and be pouring in sweat, so that number is just... Yeah, well done.

If I'm only doing small amount, I can push out sets of 50... but today was just 10 reps, breathe, 10 reps, breathe etc...

Будто бы то, что "cramming" ужасная идея... интересно. Кто знал? Вы ещё читаете книгу по-русскии? Что вы изучали на курсе?

 

Grats on the hacksacking, hopefully these will remain uneaten for a while. :)

Ugh... really having a hard time with these dang verbs...

 

Казаться

Показаться

Оказаться

Оказываться

 

I think because of the similarities with spelling, my brain can't file them correctly with their meanings... I've gotten them wrong for the past 3 weeks and it's annoying me.

Гмммм... трудная группа. Часто, "казаться/показаться" находиться во фразе "мне кажеться/казалось..." (it seems/seemed to me...), а "оказываться/оказаться" во фразе "оказалось, что...." (it turned out that....). Так, вы можете практыроваить сказать фразы "мне казалось..., а оказалось, что...."

 

Мне казалось, что русский - легкий язык, а оказалось, что трудный.

 

Is whoever giving you the verbs in imperfective/perfective groupings? Those aren't four separate verbs, per se.

You are correct... I know it's only 2 verbs but in my head all 4 words get mixed around

I know but what with life events and physical set backs you can't always compare to "all time" i'd say that was a PR ;)
