I decided to work on the cardio a bit yesterday. I just did some sprints in front of the house. I'm not sure of the length of the sprints because I used mailboxes as the markers. I tried out this runners website to check the distances. So I have an approximation.
4 x total of hops with my feet together -
10 x sprinting
10 x Sprinting
I was wearing some weighted gloves, I think it adds 5 pounds. I basically just started at my mailbox and sprinted to the neighbors mailbox then turned around and sprinted back without a rest. Then after I did 2 I walked for like 10 sec. and did it again, on the 40 Meter sprints. Then when I did the 60 Meter sprints I did 3 at a time, except the last one I did 4. That stuff was hard. Plus I hate to run.
Oh yeah and I did like 75 squats with 20 pounds. Some curls and some overhead press.
A few hours later I went over to Danny's house and we worked on some positions for a little while. He showed me some of the stuff I missed at the second day of the Sazinho Sa seminar. It was cool. Basically, on the of the moves is a modified bump sweep and the other was a reverse armbar and then you can roll the person into a regular armbar if you want. We also worked on the chokes we worked on in class on Monday.
We finished off by rolling for a little while. Usually when Danny and I roll at his house we don't do timed rounds we just roll to our hearts content. Really, we roll for a few then he taps me and I ask questions and then we go again for a little while. I like it because I get a really good workout. One thing we talked about, as far as mistakes I am making is that I keep my ass to high in the air and it makes sweeping me very easy. Noted.
Danny also started throwing some ankle locks in there because those are allowed now that I am a blue belt. He said I need to be ready for all that stuff because the women at the World's are going to be ready for everything. I got really nervous last night about going to the Tournament in June. I am working out a decent amount but I know that my competition is probably able to spend more time on the mat than I am right now, because of my finals. I am just going to go and try my best - That's all I can do.
