Training update

Went to the do jang and did a taekwondo class, practices some patterns afterwards, then headed over to the gym. My knee was bothering me, so I didn’t do any running, only some weight training.

Leg press
Hamstring flexor
Hip adductors
Hip abductors
Pull-ups (again military and parallel)
Chest press
Bar pulls (works the muscles next to the scapulae on the back)
Pectoral press
Shoulder fly
Shoulder lift
Bicep curl
Tricep extensor

I did my standard 100 pushups. I did 100 crunches/situps at the do jang so didn’t do anymore stomach work.


I went to the do jang and only took gumdo class. My knee was still bothering me a little bit and I wasn’t in the mood to do taekwondo kicking with an uncomfortable knee. I ended up just going home and taking it easy.


There’s only gumdo on Friday at the do jang and as the children were having a sleepover starting at 8 p.m., we only had the one hour class. We did some candle snuffing as well as a quick run through of cuts and patterns.

I went to the track after to do some running. However I was feeling a little tired and my knee wasn’t that great, so I didn’t do as much running as I’d like. I did two laps only and at a slow pace.


Well, today is Saturday, so maybe I’ll get some good running in. It’s just been so cold lately that I haven’t felt like getting out of my nice warm bed. The change in weather also affects my breathing. I tend to get congested which makes running so much harder, but I’ll keep trying.
