First Cello Recital

January 27th, 1pm.
Madbury Town Hall


I noticed you're all getting tired of these so I thought I'd play naked

OK I'm not actually naked I *AM* wearing a towel

....or am I? =D

If you know the song Feel Good Inc. by Gorillaz, you know what I'm going for here:

Otherwise don't even bother =)

I forgot to mention that I started feeling ill on Thursday.
Fortunately, on Thursday I did the kick drill so hard I could barely stand up straight afterwards. Then I walked through form 5 (I was surprised to be standing at all) and RAN form 6. And by RAN I mean I ran it at full speed with full power, 100%
Now, the important thing about this is that I've been short-tempered and aggressive for months, seemingly without reason. However, after Thursday I feel better.
I'm so so glad =)


One Important Question

What would you attempt if you knew that you would not fail?

and, for those who need a good cry: Barber's Adagio for Strings

oh yea, and i worked out:

50 pushups
50 cycling crunches
10 bicep curls, 25lbs per arm
50 squats with 50lbs
biceps again
20 reps, 15lbs per arm: shoulder workout, front and side (arms at full extension)
20 bent over flys, 15lbs per arm
50 misc pushups:
  • 10 one-armed (each arm)
  • 10 diamond
  • 10 knuckle pushups (elbows rubbing your sides. open handed as i have wood floors)
  • 10 standard (I skipped wide-arm pushups because they're too easy)
50 squats w/50lbs
15 bent over rows, 50lbs each side
biceps again
20 tricep extensions, 30lbs
50 side crunches, each side
50 pushups
50 cycling crunches
50 pushups =D

Then I jogged a mile (7:30) walked around a bit, then jogged another 14:20. I got bored of my normal route so I don't know how far I jogged, but it was about 3 miles.

  • 100 squats
  • 200 crunches
  • 200 pushups

I failed to work out Friday and Saturday.

More Cello Vids

The main (recognizable) section is all in flats. I'll post it eventually.

I've loved this piece since I was a kid. And now I can play it!!

Still Working Out

Forgot to work out while up in Montreal visiting Hana, though we wrestled and did Kenpo and were anything but 'stationary.'
I'll have a full update about that soon, however, I wanted to post my workout here.

50 pushups
50 cruches (cycling)
50 squats
50 misc pushups:
  • 10 clapping
  • 10 diamonds
  • 10 wide arm
  • 5 one-handed, each side
  • 10 on fists, arms tight to ribs
50 side crunches, each side
quick shoulder workout:
bent-over flys, side, front, rear
50 squats
triceps, biceps.

At that point I had to leave, otherwise I would have done another 50 pushups and crunches. I may go home and do those now, with a bit of jogging, too. This vacation rocks!
Oh, and I'll practice cello, too. I have some vids to post.... but I'm not going to stress about any of it. =)
