Monkey with a Death Wish video

This is too cute – watch the monkey taunt the tiger cubs. Reminds me of my cats. Aren’t all felines the same – big or small?

(If the video doesn’t work, check out the link Monkey with a Death Wish.)

Enjoy. Smile.

Training update – May 2, 2006


I missed gumdo class, but made it in time for taekwondo class. I can’t believe there is now only nine weeks two days left until the 10k run and the black belt test. Eek! I really need to get some more training time in. Official black belt test training starts on Saturday. Every weekend from then on is booked with training time. During the week, I’m going to try to get some running and gym time in on top of the taekwondo training. I expect I will be very busy soon. Since I needed a break from writing so much, I decided to finish reading that Robert Jordan book I put aside while I was absorbed with writing those reiki manuals. It will be hard for me to write while in the middle of the crazy training coming up, so I figured I’ll be reading more in the next little while.

After taekwondo class, I went to the gym to get in some weight training. Below is a list of my exercises:

Leg lifts
Pull-ups (aka chin-ups, military and parallel)
Leg press
Hamstring flexor (called seated leg curls)
Hip adductors
Hip abductors
Chest press
Seated row
Bar pulls (I think this is called the lateral pull-downs; it works the muscles next to the scapulae on the back)
Shoulder fly
Shoulder lift (this is called the shoulder press)
Back extensor
Stomach flexor

Free weights:
Pectoral fly (lie down with weight in each hand, arms extended; pull hands together at arm’s length in front of chest)
Two shoulder exercises (no idea what they are called; someone showed them to me)
Situps (on a incline bench; worked out the obliques as well by doing double punches during the situp)
Bicep curls
Squats with weights

I was suitable tired after all the exercise and headed home.
