The Road to Ireland

Posted on July 17, 2013 at 2:12 PM
    Tonite i hurt, I'm sore, I'm brusied, I'm tired.  Like I was yesterday, and tomorrow will be much the same ,and the day after that, and the day after that.  And it will not end until the tournament .  I do my day job then train in one way or another, either with the team or alone.  One day is sparring in the dojo, the next day may be the gym and kata practice, maybe a 5 km run and conditioning.  Every day is something, maybe an hour, maybe three.  Will I be ready? Will I have trained enough?  That will be revealed during that one weekend in Ireland.  What I do know is that I have been building towards this event for the last 2 years.  I will be in the best shape of my life, my skills will be at their peak, and my attitude first class.  I will have done something that, as little as 5 years ago, i would never of seen myself doing.  It will be a challenge, God never inttended for my body to do this, but i will have pushed myself to the limit, stepped out of my comfort zone, and lived the adventure.
