My cardio was always a weakness in competition. I am fixing this.
This morning I ran about 2 miles, making sure to stay on my toes at ALL TIMES and breath in the nose out the mouth AT ALL TIMES.
It was moderately hard but I'm not pushing myself too much yet. I want to get my lower legs used to it so I avoid hellish splints(hopefully).
I'm thinking maybe I should wear my mouthpiece to make breathing harder as a training tool.
My plan is to build up some endurance/condition the feet and then do a mix of "long runs" and intervals to prepare for a submission only. I'll need to train both endurance for a potential 20min round but also bursts for the fast parts.
Last submission only I had to stay on the bottom a lot cause I gassed and eventually I lost although I held him off a long time. The next match I won cause the other guy gassed.
I want to be the guy that makes other people gas
I don't even think I need to be very strong in all honestly because I think my game isn't very strength dependent - more reactionary with bursts of very rapid movement to get what I want fast. I've always been against mostly bigger stronger guys in training so it just naturally developed this way. I never get muscle tired but the scramble can wind me.
There are all these quotes about conditioning and fighters and all that, it's time I actually pay attention to this.
