    Monday - 23min Yoga - Core session. Ow, ow ow ow. I hate core sessions. My core is very weak right now (actually it's always been weak) particularly my back. Made my back hurt all day, but I suppose it is good for me. No Judo today as we weren't going to have enough players to make it worth running the session. On the bright side it did mean that I got to spend the evening watching some rubbish films with the husband instead.
    Tuesday - 23min Yoga - Two hard session in a row. Felt my knee for the first time in a while. Not pain, just tightness and instability. Not sure if that's good or bad.

    I also have a very weak core!

    I have not done anything this week, despite my every intention. My youngest had a Science project that is due on Friday but apparently needed to be handed in today, so we worked all afternoon on that.

    Today I am walking with a friend in the morning, probably around 5km. Then this afternoon I will be doing yesterday's arm and today's leg exercises with my eldest son.

    Today is the dreaded core for me

    I swear I checked in yesterday, apparently not!

    Wednesday: 30min Yoga - Rest session. So glad for a rest day, was basically some meditation and very light stretches. Was difficult to get up this morning and on the mat so was rewarded when I did.
    Thursday: 26min Yoga - And back to it. Balance and leg work mostly today. Definitely judo appropriate exercises and especially good for my bad knee. Right leg is still weaker than the left, but I'm feeling it less obvious. Real test will be Saturday when I'm back on the mat


    Congrats on your 15 years @Out_of_Bubblegum!

    I did my Saturday class today. It was some breakfalls and rolls and then some kata.
