Well, not everything works out as planned. And they say shoot for the stars and at least you'll hit the moon. That's exactly what happend today.

After running one mile with a heavy back pack, I decided that I was not going to run the full 6 miles and only did about 2.8 miles.

I did get a 21 Mile bike ride and an awesome hour of Aikido!!

The aikido training was incredible! There is nothing like doing aikido on the hard ground with some great friends. We sure did get dirty and we threw each other around for about 1 hour.

Hopefully Matt and Ron will get into better and better shape, so that we can start training harder and harder!

PS. We do this on Sundays, so if you want to join in on the fun, let me know.

I actually pulled it off. I planned to bike and run this morning, but by late afternoon I was ready to go to sleep. I thought to myself, maybe I should take a break today. I've been working out everyday, but then it hit me, I was just trying to be lazy. So I comprimised with myself, and instead of biking and jogging, I just biked, I only did a 19 mile ride, which took me about 1hr and 30min through the hills of Terry Hershey park.

I'm so glad I made it out, and actually I think I may just go for a 2 mile jog tonight.

The bike ride was incredible, with thunderstorms all around and flashes of lightning with clear skies in the distance. I have to admit that Houston, Texas has some of the most incredible weather in the world. It can be pouring rain, so hard you can barely see 10 feet infront of you, and 3 miles away it's sunny. Just like last Sunday, we did an Aikido Training at Memorial Park, which was nice and clear, but 10 miles away were I live it was pouring rain.

Wow, it's great to have Aikido Friends that are willing to train at the park with me!

Yep, remember that song! Well, I would like to just blog a little about how important it is to stay physical, like doing a bit extra. Like running a 5K every other day, or swimming a few laps in a pool, or even biking.

I've been keeping up with that kind of training on the side, and boy has it helped my Aikido. Not only do I feel much better everyday, but my mind is more clear. I can preceive the techniques much better and my ukes seem to be a bit more afraid of me.

Well, let me just say it one more time:

"Let's Get Physical!"

Training for me has become pretty intense. I've added biking and jogging to my routine of Aikido practice.

Never felt better...I'd love to add swimming, and intend to pretty soon!

I do believe that keeping in shape physically is very important for all three, body mind and spirit.
