Broken Nail and Impatience

Do you know how long does it take for a poppy flower to open up? Exactly the time between rope jumping and abs.

Well, I missed the target and my toe crashed against the door frame while doing the kicks. This targeted kicks are so tricky. The ball moves in every direction, in different rhythms and I couldn't hit it two times in a row. I felt how inflexible my hip still is, specially when I tried  the back kicks. 

Punches and hooks are also impossible to do in a sequence at this moment. Too much confusion, slow reflexes, bad posture. I felt like a drunken cat. I was angry by the end of the sets.

Patrick, great job on those videos. I could use one where you successfully punch the darn ping pong ball.


  1. Oh no, poor toe—casualty of war! My targeted kicks were a comedy of errors this morning too. Just when you think you're making progress, a crazy new exercise pops up on the workout sheet. . . .

  2. You're all SUPPOSED to be struggling with this stuff, your asking your brain to do stuff it's never been asked to in its whole life.
