Definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results?

Every year around this time, I seem to get a call to do yoga can't describe it any other way, its like I've been fighting it for a long time. This past week I've been getting up around 5am and doing the primary series, building up slowly, I've still been flinging the bells about and doing jiu jitsu, but the only thing that seems to satisfy me at the minute is yoga - as gay as it sounds. Maybe I should stop fighting it..

The above plus yoga seems like a good plan.

Yeah I'm leaning that way johno. Kettlebells offer me enough strength for my day to day life and its not worth ,y time or money at the minute to pay for a gym membership, as cliché as Pavels working class alternative statement was, it does ring true for me.

Tuesday,

Run 1/2 mile to hill 6 repeats up the hill which is approx 250m run 1/2 mile home

Yoga hip openers

Wednesday,

Not much energy today, still managed to fit a core workout in:

1. Dragon flag x 5
2. Side bend using 32kg bell x 6/6
3. Superman x 15
4. Med ball twist x 16

Three times through the above.

BJJ, lots of guard retrieval drills built up over the class and combined.

Stress levels are elevated with teenage daughter problems, I'm torn between wanting to kill her, hug her and giving up lol. It was easier when I could buy her a barbie doll or pram haha.

I know what you mean. My daughter hasn't done anything to get me to this level yet but she can definitely be frustrating as hell.

Russian twist x 10/10
Back extension x 10
Chinnies x a burn, usually about 30 or so

Thursday,

BJJ, guard passing drills, combining the same basic movements regardless of the guard, sparring against or piece of rubber was interesting, I'm very flexible but this kids unreal, provides quite a challenge.

Saturday,

Went out on the bike for the first time in a long time, got a double puncture and had to carry the bike home as my son had seen fit to empty my puncture repair pouch! Found out when I got home he had been trying to 'fix' his bike! In total I was out for an hour.

It certainly did theAbstract! Was gutted because I had been really looking forward to it!

Monday,

Having kids around can suck when your trying to workout! Hard to focus

1. Clean and press 2x24kg 3 x 1,2,3
2. Chins + 8kg 3 x 1,2,3
3. Swings 32kg 8 x 10
4. Farmers walk 2x24kg 8 x 40m
5. Squat 2x24kg 2 x 5

Feeling tired today bells felt heavy, overall poor session, could well be down to having extra kid type responsibilities over the holidays, I'm considering dropping all sessions down to 2 ladders and halving the swings and walks for the summer.

Diet experiment this last week increased carbs brought some pain and inflammation and my asthma was worse, overall energy was down. I generally feel better running on veg plus meat but get bad cravings for candy etc every few days. Going to try and stick lowish carb with out the sweets every 3-4days. By carbs I mean staying away from grains which is fairly easy as I'm a coeliac, gluten free grains are probably far worse for you anyway!

Tuesday,

BJJ, open mat, rolled no-gi at a good pace for an hour or so, was a hot night so the slip factor was through the roof. Tired now, some stretching and rolling on the foam roller at the end.

Getting a handle back on my diet.

Friday,

No BJJ, and non for the next few days as I'm out of town, probably a good thing feeling a little burnt out.

KB work:

1. Clean and press 2 x 24kg 2 x 1,2,3
2. Chin + 8kg 2 x 1,2,3
3. Swing 32 kg x 20
4. Farmers walk 2 x 20m

Feeling real low on energy so this counts as a punch the clock work(weak work at that), maybe I should probably stay here with this for a while till I feel good again.
