-new month,new goal,new destiny-
My pushup goal for August was unfortunately not reached =P I would blame my injuries and limited visits to YESSTraining but it really is my lack of focus. During the month of August, I was too hyped up for school, intimidated just by the extra summer classes I took. A whole week of 4 hours of algebra, Monday-Friday...two weeks later came 6 hours of engineering activities, Monday-Friday...here I am two weeks later expressing my feelings due to pre-frosh stress and time-management that I must inhabit to attend Bergen County Academies for the next four years of my life.
All of eighth grade, I would check in at KRU Training for three hours everyday, sometimes even more, to coach and attend classes. I was able to finish my homework in less than twenty minutes a day. I can do the same thing in high school right? Unfortunately, I cannot. The school day starts at 8:00 and ends at 4:10. But, due to the bus schedule and traffic, I wouldn't be able to come home until well past 5. I made a huge sacrifice and decided to give up my job as a Student Coach. I am playing it by ear and if somehow I magically zip through my Junior level classes Freshmen year, maybe I'll return to coaching. But, what fears me is that I might not be able to train as often as I would like to.
My weekly schedule consists of
Thursday LVL3 Muay Thai
Friday Fight Team Practice
Saturday Demo Team, Filipino Martial Arts, CSW, Strength & Conditioning
Does it seem too much for a fourteen year old? Not for one young teen who's been training for seven years, constantly increasing my own personal pace. I really wish that just because the school year will be starting this month, I will not alter my training pace and start over from the beginning once again. I will be trying my all to train as much as possible but maintain my high GPA and strait A's for another year. Nothing is going to get in the way of me and my passion for Martial Arts. NOTHING! one day I am going to travel the world and learn Martial Arts straight from the pros...one day I am going to be fighting on TV and people all over are going to gather and watch me fight...one day I will make a future as a fighter. But, not today. Today, I need to get through high school.
