If you want progress, clearly define your goal, whatever it is; then, figure out an effective program which is likely to get you to that goal and then exercise the drive and self discipline to stay with it
Really good article on BJJ Eastern Europe about why some people progress faster than others. I think you can take the concepts of this article and apply it to just about everything, muscle gain, work, weight loss, cardio, etc…
Didn’t have a lot of time this morning and almost talked myself out of a workout. I managed to shut myself up and went out and ran for 20 minutes today. It was probably my slowest run in a long time but it felt really good to slow down and breathe comfortable and just enjoy the beautiful morning we had today.
If anyone out there has Nike Running app and wants to make friends with a short slow guy fine me at username:
Missed fundamentals but got to see the end of class. A few new white belts in the fold which is always good to see. For BJJ advanced class I worked with the worlds most inflexible white belt which sucked cuz I couldn’t get any drilling in. We worked armbars and Americana from 100kilo position and my partner was tapping from the setup.
Still, I was in his shoes once (although more flexible) so I sacrificed my training to work with him and show him the steps.
Later we works a butterfly sweep and then onto love grappling for a few rounds
Due to the new work schedule I have only been able to attend no go nights so training with the gi today I was a bit rusty.
Woke up with a bit of renewed focus this morning. I had a long to do list before I go to work this afternoon and first priority was to get in a 20 minute run. Which I did, in the 90+ degree weather. It wasn’t pretty but I easily made the time goal.
Taking a page from my how to make a salad that doesn’t suck post I made this awesome salad for lunch.
