We're getting set for our first ever New Year training, which will take place outside on January 1st. I've already checked...it's going to be cold. Really cold. Like low to mid-20's kind of cold.
But it's going to be a great time training together and kicking off 2018 doing something pretty cool together.
Those who have trained with me long enough know that I would never ask someone to do something that I hadn't already done myself. So, this afternoon from 3-4 I went out and trained by myself...20 kata and 200 burpees. I've done this before, but never when it's been this cold. The picture is right after I finished and came back in the house. You'll notice that I don't have a sweatshirt on...believe me, it didn't start that way.
When we gather to train on Monday, wear layers. Bring gloves and a hat. I've got a plan in store that will help us create some internal heat...so much so, that you'll probably feel better taking the sweatshirt off by the time we wrap things up.
It's going to be cold...embrace it.
