Coming up to my last week in the training unit. I’m going to miss training new hires in defensive tactics but I am excited about transferring and beginning a new adventure.
Today was teaching two 4 hour blocks of basic fundamentals to two groups. This not only meant teaching the material twice in a day but having to do the workout with them twice.
20 Minutes Total – AMRAP
Do circuit 3x
1 Min each
Hand Release Push Ups
After teaching all day and the two workouts I was mentally and physical drained. I wanted to skip no-gi class tonight but I invited a friend who was meeting me there so I couldn’t leave him hanging.
I got to class feeling unmotivated, lacking energy, sore, and with a slight headache. As we started getting into the drills all of that seemed to go away and at the end of class, as I was drenched in sweat I felt recharged and rejuvenated. No headache, lots of energy, and all the soreness was gone. It’s funny how exercising and doing something you love can do that.
