August 11th: 4:30 a.m.

At this hour it's still dark out in Konoha, but if anyone wants to get to Training Ground 27 on time for certain training they might want to get up and get ready soon if they havn't already.

Ushio trots out of her house, far more awake than any sane person should be at such an ungodly hour and walks a few doors up to the bakery her aunt and uncle run, letting herself in with a spare key and heading into the kitchen where her uncle greets her. She helps herself to a couple of buns, fresh from the oven before starting towards Training Ground 27, a red bean bun in her mouth.

Ichigo rolls out of bed at this hour, while he is slightly use to the time as his family had to get up early enough to prepare the stall, his last really team, his sensei and one of his other teammates thought 7:30 was early. He takes his time with his food, grabs a set of treats for if he needs a summon to pay off, and upon realizing that he might be late, starts to rush to the team meeting place, grumbling about how he really should prepare the night before.

Hai lets out a little yawn as she stretches against the tree she is currently leaning against in the training ground, her arms crossed as she waits for the rest of her team to arrive as she checks the time on the small digital on her arm, nodding in satisfaction that she had arrived at 4:44 AM. A little earlier then she wanted, as she wanted to arrive at 4:45, but 4:44 was acceptable.

She had wakened, as she always did, at 4:00 AM, in preparation to go to work. Now that Shinobi duties were taking over, she found herself with more time, and had made herself breakfast before she came to the grounds.

[...she's coming? I thought it was just going to be the three of them after things changed around (don't know why I thought that but there you go). Well if you want her sure, I'm happy enough to write it. Hyuuga-hime it is.
*starts writing* Hmm, August... August isn't cold for you people is it? XD No cold morning for Hotaru then]

Hotaru scowls and she dresses in the dark of her room, not bothering with the lights, before tying back her hair and slipping quietly down the hall with far more grace than her tired, irritated expression would suggest. She comes to the kitchen and finds breakfast already set out in her place, her expression softens as she sits down to eat. Hoshi must have had a morning shift. A short time later, Hotaru has finished and carries her tray of bowls and plates to the kitchen, placing them by the sink before leaving by the back door and striding towards the training field, her head held heigh.

Ushio arrives at the training ground with a little over ten minutes to spare and makes her way over to Hai, to attempt starting a conversation. She begins with the standard.

"Good Morning!"

Hotaru arrives several minutes later and makes no attempt to be social.

Ichigo is seen rushing into the training ground about a minute after Hotaru arrives. While working to slow down his breathing he spoke, "Morning everyone, it was semi-nice weather for a jog, no?" A small smile on his face.

Seconds before 5:00, the genins and single chunin hear approaching footsteps. Their new sensei shows up right on time, dressed in the standard Konoha jounin uniform rather than the civilian clothes he was wearing yesterday.

"Good, you're all here on time." Nishiyori looks at Hotaru and Hai. "Hm, I know we did introductions yesterday, but you two didn't meet then. If you don't know each other's names then fix that."

"Hyuuga Hotaru," It's really more of a statement than introduction from her tone, "Chuunin."

[No talking to scum when not necessary XD]

"Hai." Hai introduces herself and smiles at Ushio, ignoring Hotaru. "Good morning Ushio-chan."

"You can feel the good vibes in the air." and with that moment of levity passed the "nice" Nishiyori is gone and the hardass is all that is left.

"I encourage questions here because for a ninja ignorance is not bliss, it's death, but I don't accept complaints. Make no mistake, what I say goes and if I hear any whining, moaning, or bitching you will not like the outcome." For added effect, the jounin includes a level of deadly intent to his presence during this statement that should get them sweating but lets it drop afterward.

"Physical training for today. Specifically, I need to know what you're all capable of right now." Nishiyori reveals a typical storage scroll. He unfurls a bit of it, places it on the ground, and with a bit of blood and some smoke a mundane weight bench with an accompanying set of barbells and dumbbells.

[VO]: "Strength training is a key part of any physical training regimen, and most of what anyone might need for it can be bought for a steal at your typical yard sale."[/VO]

Nishiyori hands each of the four young ninja a slip of paper with a seal written on it. "These will suppress your chakra for today. Put them on the back of your necks and I'll activate them."

The killer intent mostly ensures that Ichigo is awake as he nods. Giving the object a quick look over, he places it carefully on his neck. "Oh boy, Neji will be so jealous."

The girls take them without comment and without enthusiasm. Hotaru looks annoyed, Ushio resigned, but they've both learned to humour jounins by this point and they place the tags on the back of their necks.

Hai looks at the seal intently, frowning a bit as she can't make heads or tails of it. She always was a bit of a baka when it came to seals, so she quickly glances at Ichigo's neck to figure out what way is what and attaches the seal to the back of her neck, under her hair.

Once they're attached, Nishiyori activates the seals. He leads the group through a short warm-up and then has the four young ninja performing various weight training exercises; first demonstrating how it's performed and then having them try. He doesn't put them through a full workout on any of the exercises since the goal is to make sure they know the proper form and to find out their personal best on each exercise.

One hundred minutes have passed by the time everyone has tried each of the excercises.

oog: I don't think I need to actually write out the different weight training exercises, do you? I mentioned how long this will take, but that isn't intended to cut off any thoughts/reactions your characters might have during this time or at the end of it.

Hai breezes through the exercises, not breaking a sweat as she goes through each workout, her higher-then-average stamina showing itself off, even if she's not quite as strong without access to her chakra.

As they go through the excercises, Nishiyori makes note of the amount of weight each of them did for each excercise on a small notepad.

"Not bad, but plenty of room to improve. Your physical conditioning will include weight training, circuit training, and good old-fashioned running and swimming. You'll do this as a team most of the time but you'll eventually be able to balance and adjust your own regimen. Speaking of running..."

Nishiyori looks to the North and points at a mountain well outside the village. "Shiro-chan is on the top of that mountain waiting for you along with a red flag. Bring her and the flag here and you'll be rewarded with lunch. You can drink water but that's it until you complete this task. If you hurry you should be back by around noon."

He glances at his watch. "I won't be coming with you, since I have an appointment in twenty minutes." the jounin then looks to Hotaru. "Part of the reason you're here is to get some experience leading ninja. Well, you're in charge for this mission, Hyuuga."

Hotaru gives a curt nod, her face flushed from the exercises. She fared the worst out of the group, relying more on technical skill than physical endurance. She takes a deep breath and straightens up as Nishiyori leaves before speaking curtly.

"Let's go."

She starts walking in the direction indicated before breaking into a quick jog. Ushio looks a little dubious at the situation then runs to catch up to Hotaru, tilting her head. Hotaru looks back with second, her pale eyes meeting Ushio's hazel.

"At the back, those two in the middle."

Ushio drops back as Hotaru leads on.

Ichigo nods at the directions given from first the jounin and then Hotaru. Of course, he is not so sure that their teacher has an appointment, but does not mention that out loud. Of course, he keeps his eyes scanning as they jog, fortunately he isn't too tired, as whatever pace Hotaru sets will give him a bit of a cool down.

oog: can't recall the name of the coffee shop, think it was Hikari's. Anywho...

ig:

Aprroximately twenty minutes have passed.

*The coffee shop*

Nishiyori is at the counter ordering a large black coffee. Upon receiving his order he takes a seat just outside the shop and waits, enjoying his java fix.

*On the trail*

The group has just passed the village gates and are entering the woods on their way to the mountain. Lack of chakra and being unable to hop on rooftops or trees is an unwanted reminder of acadamy days.

*rolls*....2. You all continue on, nothing disrupting your progress.

You're able to determine that if you maintain a steady jogging pace you could probably spare a fifteen minute break or two along the trail and still get back in time for lunch. Walk, and you'll have less time to spare, of course.

Hai sighs and rolls her eyes. "What's wrong? Worried about scuffing your shoes or something?" She asks, "I wasn't aware we were on parade here. We're on mission, a timed mission at that. We should be trying to set a faster pace."

"You haven't worked with Jounins much have you?" Hotaru replies, her tone condescending this time, "Most of them are either lazy and don't want to teach, in which case we'll be fine, or enjoy tormenting the lower ranks, in which case we're better off being fresh for whatever he has planned than exhausting ourselves. We are on a timed mission, we are on time and you are being whiny, impatient and insubordinate."
