A nicely energetic week. Two days of skiing, one day off, two days of snowboarding, travel, two days of taekwondo.
Our first taekwondo instructors course of the year, with a focus on basics, and teaching basics. Even (or especially?!) as a 3rd dan, I found an awful lot to work on with my basic techniques.
There is an ego problem with seniority and if you can overcome it you can reach greater heights. If you can’t overcome it, I think you become smaller, and insecure. I’m trying very hard to overcome it.
Also with seniority is the need to own your ability and allow yourself to be a role model, and not diminish your own expertise or path. If you believe in the journey, you need to believe in your place in the journey as well.
I managed to land a couple of 180 snowboarding jumps off natural hits this week. That’s been a goal for a few years now, so I’m very pleased indeed. And the pain in my left glutes will pass.
I’ve been using the Less app to track my drinking. It’s helped. I’ve set a weekly limit of 7 drinks, which is about the UK advised limit of 14 units, given the sorts of drinks I normally drink. I have enjoyed ending the week under my limit for a few weeks in a row. Whatever makes you tick, yeah?
