Well, it’s been a busy week. Here’s a recap of my training the past week.

Wednesday, May 10, 2006

I went to the do jang for taekwondo class and then to the gym for some conditioning training.

Leg lifts
Pull-ups (aka chin-ups, military and parallel)
Leg press
Hamstring flexor (called seated leg curls)
Hip adductors
Hip abductors
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

Free weights:
Situps (on a incline bench; worked out the obliques as well by doing double punches during the situp)
Bicep curls
Squats with weights
Pectoral fly
Chest press (with bar)

I also got in 10 minutes on bicycle before the gym closed.

I went to the do jang for gumdo and taekwondo class. I learned two new dueling techniques for gumdo. Next time I think I’ll learn one of the patterns. 🙂

I went for a run. As I was meeting up with Nathan, I decided to just run over and meet him. I ran a total distance of 2.6 km. My time was 14 minutes 40 seconds, which was a slightly slower pace than usual. This is not unusual though on my third day of exercise. After two days of heavy exercise, the third day your body is fighting muscle soreness and fatigue.

I went to the black belt test training class, which is two hours.

Sunday, May 14, 2006

I went to the black belt test training class, which is one hour. Next weekend, the do jang is closed and there is no test classes. So, I can rest next weekend. 😀

Official countdown: seven weeks five days remaining.
