My personal goal continues to be, whatever I do for training, to do it 2-3 times per week.

On this "Anniversary Day" for Karate Forums, I'm reminded, the most important thing is to show up, to be consistent. The support of others, in whatever form, is helpful in maintaining that discipline.

Earlier this year, whether it was shorter days, or weather, or pandemic-related isolation, things like jogging or doing forms in my back yard, I slacked off on.
It always hurts more and is less productive to be spotty. Now I'm back running 2-3 times per week, and it feels much better.

I hear you on the consistency. I'm suffering through a crappy work schedule that precludes me from making it to classes right now. But, I've been able to keep up my strength training, so I take solace in that. If my schedule balances out here soon, I hope to start doing some some solo training at the TKD room.

Apologies for raising an old thread from the dead but i thought putting down some goals in black and white where other people can see them might be a good idea (am very tempted by the idea of a log like bushido_man's )

For me challenges are:

short/medium/long term

-Get my lifting numbers back up : took too long out of the gym and numbers have regressed pathetically. I want to see a gradual improvement on a monthly basis

medium term

-Earn my next belt at bjj. got multiple injuries and took a lot of time off the mats. Back consistently now and want my purple and onwards! Trying to use the fact that my new coach is a bb now and a former training partner as an incentive that it is indeed doable!
-Re-earn my Shotokan Shodan. Have started back and working my way through the grades again. I want to earn every belt and be confident i have earned the bb again when i get it

longer term

-Progress through the dan grades at shotokan. I'm getting older but i would like to learn more and get more skilled.
-Eventually earn my bjj bb (i said it was long term!)

Cool to see you considering a log, DarthPenguin.

I want you to know, however, that it is not "my log." It's a thread I started for anyone and everyone to share their training. Somewhere along the way, others dropped off.

So, if you feel so inclined, please feel free to post your training log along with mine!

Thanks, i appreciate the clarification.

Since part of the reason for posting a log would be to hold myself accountable i'd likely post my own one, since then i would be faced with "last post on Date X" and that would be a good reminder to keep it active!

My personal fitness challenge is similar. Overall, I want to get my diet under control, which lays the foundation to all my goals..
Im a sucker for potatoes (baked, fried etc) I need to lay of certain foods and eat healthier. I really see the effects of eating unhealthy when I have rolling sessions.
