Oh my blog! Whee! Wrong by design

    So, I got through week 6, albeit not entirely in keeping with the plan. The test put me in the middle category with 60 consecutive push ups, but it was still too much in the end, I guess – rounding each day off with 50 in one go was more than I could handle, so I did two times 25 instead. Still enough to get me sweating and panting, so good fun. Theoretically, I should be able to do 100 consecutive push ups now, but I think I’m still a bit ways off. This morning, I made my own plan, though: I did 10 x 10 push ups with 10 seconds pause in between. In a couple of days, I’ll do 9 x 10 and 1 x 20, and I’ll just cut off one pause every time. That should get me to 100 in 9 more sessions.

    Tuesday night was jiu jitsu night – great training with my buddy John. Main subject was wrist holds and arm locks. We’ve reached the conclusion that I know plenty of arm locks for the graduation, but I still need to practice the formalities.

    Oh, and Wednesday morning was a new low on the scales since after my summer vacation – 84.5 kilos. This means that I’m now back to where I was before my vacation, and my new target is 80 kilos. Yay!
