Ship’s Log–January 2nd


The dojo opened up today after a week and a half hiatus. It felt good to be back on the mats, even if we had to keep a nervous eye on the weather throughout our workout. The snow had started falling just as we were headed out to class, and there was a good inch or so on the roads by the time we left. The school had already called to let us know they would be closed tomorrow.

I’m looking forward to the snow day just as much as the Things!


16 pushups, in the morning. In the evening, I took a 45 minute BJJ class and 45 minutes of MMA, which included a lot of conditioning. And push ups. 40 regular and 15 wheel barrow. I ended with 10 minutes of yoga to stretch.
