Kickboxing tonight was GREAT. We did a bunch of crazy lunges with rather heavy weights so I know my legs and butt are really going to be feeling it tomorrow. For upper body I went with the 5 pound weights again and though they really felt heavy (and duh, I'm used to 3 lbs,) it wasn't as bad as last time. I wonder how long before I graduate to 8 lbs. Maybe I should give myself at least until March, eh?
We also practiced doing spinning back kicks and WOW will I be feeling that but it's nice that everything is starting to feel more fluid. They're also a lot easier when you have a target to aim at.
We went through basic forms 1 and 2 again (sigh.) I really want to get up to 5 and 6 but every time we have somebody new we seem to drop back to 1 and 2 again. It's going to take FOREVER to get all the way to 18. I think Sabina knows I am getting antsy about it. I guess we are setting up those neural patterns so I will be able to do them the rest of my life, the same way I can sit down at a piano (with my bad form,) and still play old recital pieces.
I really want to practice 3 and 4 since I need to get those passed off soon. New belt coming up. No, I don't have anything nearly as intensive as my nephew with his karate but I do take this seriously.
RRARR and all that.
