Mon 5-11: ran 5 miles. 9:30 average pace, used the incline for part of the last mile.
Tue: 2 miles. I had to do all the kid transporting.
Wed: My birthday. I didn't do anything after work except get hammered and watch DVDs with my husband.
Thur: 40 min arc trainer, 15 min (20 if you count intervals I guess) on the heavy bag.
Fri: Ran 5 miles in new shoes. The icing last night helped. Hoping to duplicate this Sat. and Sun. also to make up for the lame midweek.
Sat: ran 5 miles.
Sun: Ran 5 miles. it brings the week total to only 22 like last week. Track season is over so the track kid can run in the gym with me and there'll be less workout time lost because of picking up and dropping off.

Mon 5-18 - ran 5 miles, 2 hrs MMA, drills with passing guard, triangle, getting out of keyhole (figure 4) lock, pop ups, some grappling. This is tiring but I think running has helped my conditioning to where I sweat and work but don't get out of breath. My arms are covered in bruises though.
Tue: 40 min. arc trainer. running kids. This is likely to happen on Thur. also. LAME
Wed.: 4 mile run, 2 hrs MMA, but I did some watching also. Same workout as Wednesday. very very fun. Smells like ass in that gym though.
Thur: Sore from closing my guard. rest day
Fri: 5 mile run.
Sat.: 4 mile run, 20 min. bike.

Have you always trained MMA, or is this something new? And do you do any other type of running other than LSD? Ever do sprints? Or uphill stuff? Or HIIT?

This is something new wukka. The gym only opened 2 months ago. I may or may not go back to TKD, because I felt it offered me very little in the way of realistic self-defense training. The emphasis in TKD is to prevent a fight from going to the ground, however this is confusing because a)Olympic TKD sparring is full contact, and b)if you get attacked for real, likely the first place it will go is to the ground. If you have any etiquette tips other than the obvious for being a female in a grappling gym, (this is by no means the first time I've been the only woman in a class full of dudes) it would be appreciated. They have been very respectful and patient re: grappling with me, BTW.

I prefer distance running in order to maintain the grip on my MILF stamp LMAO! I always forget the numbers and effort vs. recovery periods for HIIT. Also I would like to run another 10K and maybe a half marathon one day, hence the distance obsession.

As far as etiquette is concerned, but I would just focus on paying attention to the instructor, and also being aggressive as far as asking people to roll. You should let people know that you are very interested in becoming better and you are not afraid to roll with any boys.

And about running, but I'm sure LSD will keep your MILF-status good, I think that mixing it up with sprints, hill runs, and other cardio methods will be very beneficial for you.

It's a real shame my husband is being such an assbite about me going to this gym. He's "that guy" who doesn't want his wife rolling with guys, b/c he thinks I'm sexualizing it, or they are.

I learned more practical fight skills in 2 classes than I did in 4 years of TKD. You've probably seen in my other posts that I'm going to talk to someone at the gym that just opened near me about judo and MT.

I need to go to Hal Higdon for some HIIT programs. I think Scarecrow posted a link in here that looked helpful, also.

Monday 5-24: 5.5 mile run, avg. pace 9:25. I have got to add in an incline and go up to 7 or 8 miles if I'm going to do that 10K around the 4th of July.
Tue: 5.5 mile run, same avg. pace, ran on a 1% incline for about 6 minutes of the last mile, painful but I can tell it's going to help give me a little junk in the trunk.
Wed: 6 mile run, slightly faster avg. pace, maybe 9:20. I'm excited because I can't remember the last time I ran 6 miles.
Thur: 5 mile run, kind of tired.
Fri: Active rest day. 20 or so min total interval heavy bag combinations. I hit like I meant it so I still dripped sweat, but trying to shake the feeling of fail b/c I didn't run.
Sat: rest day. out of town.
Sun: 4 mile run. 26 miles total this week. Better, but I haven't used the incline anywhere near enough.

Mon: After being a lazy ass and achy all weekend, I took the kickboxing class at the dojo near my house and then stayed for point sparring which was fun as usual. Sport karate point fighters who are bigger than me leave their sternum open a lot hehehehe.
Tue: Lost my job (or rather, my position was eliminated) but I did the elliptical for 40 minutes and the bike for 15. feeling full of fail about now.
Wed: Rested.
Thur: 5 mile run, grappling at 5:30.
Fri: 40 min pad work, then a couple of drills after class.

After being a freakin vegetable all weekend, I got back at it today.

Mon: grappling at 9 am, standup at 6 pm, sparring 7-8. Hard work but fun as shit. The guys have figured out that they can hit me lol. All they throw is the blitz so I'm going to work on having that rising block come up in that microsecond, which is harder than it sounds.
Tue: ground fighting drills, I learned to shrimp out, escape from mount into half guard, hook one foot, push the other knee down and get into closed guard, complicated. Also that drill with the weird name where you turn on your hip, go up on your shoulder and pass your arm across your body. Like you were getting out of a keylock.
Wed: ran 2.5 miles and rode the bike for 15 minutes in the morning. This afternoon I lifted arnold press, seated row, assisted tricep dip, shrugs, chest press and rear delts. I kind of scrambled up my muscle groups. I won't be lifting tomorrow because I'll try to run in the morning and there's MMA at night.
Thur: ran 4 miles, lifted bi's and tri's. I lifted b/c I don't think I can go to MMA due to freakin soccer and lord and master golfing.
Fri: Grappling at 10 am, sparring from 6-7:30. Still getting used to fighting sport karate fighters. fun though, lots of fun.
Sat: Standup and ground striking 10:15-11:30.
