|JP, The Yorkshire Warrior!|
The 10 mile race with obstacles is always headed up by our own Yorkshire Warrior, 'JP' He is a Tutor at the local college and all round fitness machine running classes, encouraging people to run races with him, for him, and then sometimes they beat him ;)
And I have been to a karate seminar run by Master Tony Johnson, Master Janet McKenna's Instructor of many years.
The seminar started with a partner off and push ups, followed by back to back squats, and push ups, continuing on to free sparring, and push ups, with more free sparring and push ups! We changed partners a number of times and worked on free style one steps. Not as difficult as it sounds once you get the idea. A one step is a way to block an attack, then counter it. The idea was to use part or all of their force and use it against them. This was the ongoing theme throughout the session. After some time in the Dojang, we 'trainered' up and went outside, it was a very pleasant afternoon to train out on the grass.
All this on the same day. no wonder I ached! :)
