Oh, Hey There.

Sorry this is so short! I usually fill my thread up with crazy gifs and extravagant challenges.

 

This time I have 1 focus: My testing.

 

I test for 5th Dan the second weekend of April! EEEEPPPP!!!

 

 

Things I need to do to get myself ready:

 

 

1. For the love of all that is holy, Eat right. Loosing some poundage always helps my kicks be faster and look better. I literally need to get light on my feet.

 

  • Eat at slight deficit. Need to maintain caloric intake for exertion, but also loose some poundage. Eating slightly below maintenance and upping exertion
  • TRACK calories on MFP. I get in and out of this habit, but I ALWAYS do better when I track.
  • ONE re-feed per week. NOT a cheat day. Though I won't be AS strict. Just more good calories.

 

2. Train, Train, Train...Train a Foooool.

 

  • 5x week. This may seem like a lot with work and classes, but I often times have 2 workouts on my days off: 1 personal one, and then the advanced class at night. So 5 a week is still not going overboard.
  • Focus on Patterns, Kick drills, HIIT drills, slow kicks
  • Fiure out specialty break routine by mid March

 

3. Puppeh Run

 

  • One 2 mile Puppeh run/week

My poor puppeh has been neglected. :( I stopped long distance running last month because I decided the tightness of my IT band, hamstrings, and calves were from this long distance running and were hindering my kicks. Yes, my legs were tired after long runs, but I have a theory it is the cause of some loss in leg strength.

 

So I decided to stop running for a while to see what kind of impact that would make on my kicks and leg control. Now my poor puppeh doesn't go on near as many runs! :( (She is spoiled and likes walks, but would really rather run)

 

So I decided that a 2 mile run once a week would still make puppeh happy, but not impede too much on what I am trying to accomplish with my kicks.

 

 

4. Cheat Jar

 

  • $1-5 for bad food depending on severity
  • $5 for days I do not track on MFP

 

Money will be used for something on my testing day. Maybe a cupcake!

 

 

So that is all nerds. Boring but I'm here and trying.

Also, I really can't help but see David Tennant and not see Killgrave at the same time.
