      Haha. Opening a new account with a new bank. Had to make a decent impression. But I'll bear that in mind if we take a loan for a new bathroom!

    I missed Krav Maga. Nice to start again, even if there are only 2 of us from last year's group, so we had to start pretty much from the beginning.

    Lots of kneeing and open-hand hitting.

      I just looked at the pace - it's really fast compared to my usual hill-training pace, more so given I'm not 100%. Thanks for pointing that out (and for your get-well wishes), Ruchi!

    Set this up as warm up / 1 hour of 3:30/0:30 intervals / cool down.

      Thanks. The book I've been reading really recommends short hill sprints. Really short. Start with 8 seconds. Later in the training cycle up it to 10 and eventually 12 second sprints. You can run a hill for. 8 seconds. I was surprised how short it was.
