Krav L.A. Day - 4

Over the hump. Should be all downhill from here right? Who knows, especially after today. I’m pretty sure the instructors were trying to kill us this morning. I don’t know why, we’re nice people, we’ve been working out hard and sweating gallons daily even with our sore muscles, black eyes and bruises. Maybe we looked like we had too much energy? Maybe they feared we would become soft? I don’t know the reason(s) but after what started out as a decent warmup turned into a nasty heavy bag routine that pushed me to my limit.

The main problem was that I really didn’t eat anything for breakfast. My stomach seemed a little upset and just felt like it didn’t want any food on it. Not only that, I got up a little later and was rushed to even get breakfast…so there I was 45 minutes into a serious cardio exercise with no fuel. I wish I could say it ended there but instead our instructor informed us that we were going right into a mock test to see were all of our abilities were right now. This test lasted until 10am. There wasn’t any time to grab a drink even though my tall, cool water bottle sat only 4 feet away. It was non stop. By the end of the 2nd hour I couldn’t believe that it was only 10am and we still had 5 hours to go. I was fairly certain that I was going to throw up, pass out or just keel over. Fortunately after the ‘test’ I was able to catch my breath, eat and drink…it took awhile but I eventually felt human again.

The afternoon was much easier physically and that was a welcome change, although we were put on the spot more which is a bit nerve wracking. I came home tonight and realized how tired I feel…just TIRED. I just got back from a small dinner they had for us at a yummy mexican place, I’m feeling a bit better now, but sleep is soon to come. I know the next two days will be shorter blogs because I have some serious studying to do. I realize now how important our studying is…and now I’ve got to get on top of it!

At the end of the day I didn’t feel so bad that I just about completely gassed out this morning. My partner who is a boxer/MMA guy and is in top physical condition said that he was gassed too. And in talking with everyone else, they too thought it was a bit extreme this morning. As the one guy from New Orleans said (in is long drawn out drawl). ‘Weeeeeeeel, just because it’s hump day, don’t mean that it’s gonna be easy. Ya still gotta go up the first part of that hill’. True. Tomorrow I’m getting up 30 minutes earlier to allow myself to wake up, eat and get hydrated before I have to hit it..because you never know!

    wow- sounds like quite a time you’re having. i’m wondering why they chose to take you to a mexican place? just seems like a strange combination with eating beans, and then being confined in small places tomorrow. good luck!
