It was way to warm today so I hid in the basement for most of the day getting some stuff done. Mostly cleaning up. The place was a mess.
While doing so I cleaned all my swords that were cluttered all over the place 🤓 Other gear was also in dire need of training. My fencing vest was probably occupied by a cat for a long time and used as a nest. Tried it on after months and all the training pays off. It fits again – breathing included 🤺
While clearing my workbench I found a cable drum waiting for a new plug. Later I found replacement plugs so I got that finally fixed too 😀
I also found this little treasure of 19 FFP2 masks filled in 2009. Lucky me, eh? Feeling very rich now 😀
Kids were also around most of the time and had a lot of fun with various training tools. Don’t get it wrong, we’re not particular athletic here. Stuff just piles up.
Some weeks ago I managed to kill my old #pell for good. I never expected it to hold that long at all when I built it back in 2016. To be fair I slacked off a lot over the last year but thanks to recent events forcing everyone to stay at home I stepped up my #training again.
Don’t train alone, it only embeds your errors.
Vesimir, The Witcher 3
Well, Vesimir is right, but that choice do we have? So I spent the late afternoon refurbishing my fallen #pell.
Luckily there was another beam, that was part of the kitchen wall some years ago (#hausbauquatsch), with the same dimensions. I could even re-use most of the old post.
Some of the old screws were broken and I had to persuade the leftovers with a crowbar (I probably learned this in Half-Life ;))
And that’s it this time. I never came back to adding any sort of dampening mats. Some use carpet or rope. I’ve even seen tires used for this. Somehow I became very fond of flying splinters all over the place though. It’s a very satisfying feeling and I even made a video about this some years ago.
That’s a bodyweight #workout similar to pilates and yoga from what I can tell. Each exercise is 30 minutes and the goal are three different exercises per week. Tbf I did #training 01 6 times in a row before even trying the next. I’m badly out of shape.
Friends came over for a spontaneous armoured #training for #reenactment last weekend. Lots of stabbing while keeping the line closed. Weather was perfect for this but sadly not good for taking some good pictures so here is all I salvaged from the camera.
