Right now it’s a few hours before my black belt pre-test. The worst part about today is the fact that the test is at 2:00pm. It’s a long wait this morning. I had some cracked rice and some eggs for breakfast and will be eating a small tuna sandwich around 11:30. I think that’ll put me in the right place from a nutrition standpoint.
The biggest challenges for me today will be the conditioning and the stress of performing in front of the kung fu big wigs. Because my pre-test needed to be rescheduled because of my China trip, I’ll be taking this test alone. And anytime I have a lot of watchful eyes focused on me I’m prone to error.
I’ll report back post-test.
