The usual plus the PT - it's not hard, but it is time consuming. My Physical Therapist said that when that injury acts up, I need to resume my exercises and ice as a first line of defense. I was able to do classes just fine, but didn't kick with full speed and power. I also had to take it easy on the squats. I did them, just a little slower.
Resuming physical therapy exercises for my left knee/acl
7 a.m. class, lots of kicks - my left knee/acl injury is starting to flare up again. After that, I helped with the kids classes - it's a workout since I'm doing a lot of the exercises and drills with them. Also, I think I busted my little toe too. I was running with the kids, and my pinky toe smacked into the heel of one of the kids - now it's all swollen and purple.
8 am class. We did quite a few tricep pushups today - quite a lot of them
Worked on weapons primarily today - bo, sai, sickles, and nunchaku.
Earlier in the day, my left knee starting acting up...it's been fine for a couple of months, but now it's bugging me - grrrrr.
Back to the usual tonight... 5 p.m. karate followed by kickboxing. In karate we did a smaller version of what we did last night. I led exercised with 35 pushups, 70 squats, 70 sit-ups, 20 butt busters, 100 punches.
Tonight we did the following:
- 35 pushups
- 100 situps
- 25 chair dips
- 25 butt busters
We were supposed to repeat that three times, but the second and third time, Sensei lowered the situps to 60. On the second and third time, I was unable to do all of the pushups - I'll have to work more on those.
After that, he had us run around the dojo a few times, duck walks, crab crawls, 3 x 1 minute intervals on the bag, 50 or 100 punches (I can't remember), and then 50 kicks on each leg.
The rest of the time was spent on self defense against a gun and a knife.
I was still in recovery mode from the campout tonight as was Nadia. While I did the 5:00 class, I skipped on the kickboxing tonight.
Kenjutsu, tantojutsu, shurikenjutsu, stealth, camouflage, various combat scenarios, self defense, an obstacle course, and lots of bug bites.
Also, I really hate 💩on campouts - it truly is one of the hardest parts - an upset digestive track while doing all the campout stuff is quite undesirable.
Karate: Lot's of ninja campout prep
Kickboxiong: Cardio, Supergirl workout, running backwards, and hitting stuff.
