Very Hard Training today
Since I didn't go into work today. I was able to spend most of the afternoon training after I let out my class. Met up with Chen and the crew. We went up to his Old man's temple in VA, We did some warm up stuff there. Then we left..
First we went to the highest public building we could find. It was some hotel building several miles away...
I ran up 44 flights of stairs! Twice!
After Went back to the temple and played various activities in the backyard..
I had to get past 24 swinging panels! 3 times!
Had to crouch, hold my ears and hop up and down the temple stairs! Twice! (Very Long stairs..)
If I wasn't already tired enough from all that, I Had a free for all match with 4 decently skilled ppl at the same time!! Full contact!!
Doesn't sound like much but it was Hard!! x.X
I think I've officially lost 50% feeling in my arms and legs now..
at least for the next few hrs.
I'm so dead tired even tho I just woke up from a short nap that I think I can collapse any second.
Man I must be out of shape or something to be this tired from only this much activity. I really need to get over this by the end of summer. I don't know if it's Pride or whatever but I'm rather dissapointed in myself that I could be so drained after this.
What a humbling feeling..
I feel da sads :(
I Think I need to go out for some fresh air now And Food..
Needs to da eats..
Update with toys and other fun stuff later if I'm still alive.
I should be.
sounds like the day was hard for you. did you win the bout with the 4 fighters? I think you are working good training. I dont know why you feel sad, we are only human after all. No matter how strong you get, I dont think you will ever be satisfied. I think one can become great but being strong is not just physical always Remember what Arisu sama always says,
"If one reaches to a higher rank, he need only eliminate his faults. It may sound easy, but eliminating faults is very difficult to accomplish, because we tend to think we are faultless. Faults can be translated into something different in Budo. They can be suki or carelessness, presumption, arrogance, etc. they all become our fault. No fault, zero condition is the best. I am zero. I joke that the Soke has no Dan. Zero, no fault that is the target of Bufu Ikkan"
Onesama speaks the truth, I think you should listen to her more often but you're so stubborn and hardheaded Keichan :P
You need to humble more ^U^
I wouldn't say anybody won. We were all just kinda going at it. Only thing is the 4 were all attacking me. No one was KO'ed or anything and no one said stop. So I guess we all just kinda went on till everyone agreed to stop. Know what I mean?
Hmm.. I honestly dont remember Alice ever saying any of those things to me, at least not in those words. I do understand the concept tho and I do my best never to get too cocky about anything, get too arrogant or just assume my opponent's abilities. I always expect the most out of everyone I fight. I for one dont ever like to be taken by surprise.
I wouldn't say I'm flawless tho. I certainly haven't achieved "Zero" mindset yet. I honestly wonder how many ppl have. It's Insanely tough.
As for your comment about me being Stubborn and Hardheaded..
I never really thought I was Stubborn but I cant be 100% sure. As for Hardheaded I do admit I've done really stupid things in my life and am certainly not without some regrets. But I do recognize my mistakes and try to fix them. I am not afriad to admit that I am wrong at times at least. So I dont think I'm stubborn but maybe a little hardheaded.
And I am sad because today's performance made me feel out of shape. I haven't felt my body burn like it did during yeasterday since I was a kid. I know we are all only human but It pains me to think that I was taken to my limit so easily. Now I'm sore as hell. I think I will take off of training today if I can.
Most likely I'll have to go train anyway tho..
Have fun in HK -_^
