*focus on perfect form, keeping fluid movement throughout, avoid creating the need to stop and rest.*
For the rest of my hour, I worked on ankle mobility and my pistols, in varying shades; with a band, against the wall, sitting at the bottom of it, holding my toes, etc, just really focusing on keeping my heel down. It's ridiculous, because I am strong enough, I just have limited range of motion from years of walking around on my toes as a kid.
After pistols, I worked on muscle-up progressions. Taking it easy on the torque-ier full blown muscle up, since my elbow is starting to show some over-use, tendonitis-ish of qualities. =/
While working on muscle-up progressions, I worked on my November Burpee Challenge. 100 burpees a day for the month of November. Feel free to join in on the fun and like the Facebook page!
Since I'd already knocked out 30 in the WOD, I broke them up into sets of 15 and 10 in between progressions. The last 15 I did as fast as possible.
100, done! When it starts to get hard, I just think back to the Burpee Mile ... When it still seems hard, I think back to clinch drills during Combatives. Suddenly, everything seems amazing!
This morning, I was having a bit of a winter clothing crisis. It's freezing and all of my clothes are suitable for hot Texas.
I needed some warm stuff, bad. Off to Lululemon I went, scored some awesome goods. Scuba sweater, wunder under crops, gloves, tank, tee shirt, etc.
Then I was off to coach the Noon class at CFM. Our sweaters came in!
They are amazing! American Apparel, so soft, so comfortable!
Skyline logo on the back. Boom sauce.
Starbucks liked our sweaters so much, they decided to match us.
Today's noon class was probably one of my best to date. There's a lot that goes into being a good coach, and I take a lot of pride in knowing my stuff. We work with a lot of beginners, but we always have some advanced athletes in a class as well. And focusing on each client, giving them each the attention /coaching that they need requires some practice. Becoming a good coach happens just one way - one must do a lot of coaching!
I know I still have a lot to learn, but I also know that
I have a lot to offer as a coach.
From my CFM students to these furbabies, there's just a lot of love flowing my way right now.
And damn, my dinner was loving my mouth! Kale, garlic, bacon, brussels sprouts, all sauteed together in my handy dandy cast iron pan.
And some of my favorite beer may have made it into my belly.
Do you drink beer or wine?
I do both. :)
What is your favorite? White or red? Light or dark?
I love a good IPA or a dry chardonnay
