Tired and Sore

Going to be a slow, short run today.

Last night I went to karate, the first time in two weeks, and it was hard. A small class (10 people), and mostly advanced belts. For some reason our teacher decided it was kata only night, and we started off with lots of kata, moving from one to the other fairly quickly. I think we had 4-5 repetitions of the first 3 in about 10 minutes and then progressed to advanced forms.

We did vary the technique a little, but for the most part we were moving quickly. The only break I got was when we made it through the black belt form and moved to the second one, which I know little of and aren’t interested in learning more right now.

The break didn’t last long. After shodan-II, we went back to the basics, but this time we added push-ups or squats, or both, between sets. So a kata, then right away 10 pushups. Then kata, then more push ups. Then kata then 30 squats. By the time we got near the end, with another small break for shodan-II again.

I was beat, exhausted at the end.
