Akane skidded to a halt as she passed Kaede, though she hadn't expected the make contact at all she seemed to have shattered something on her passing. She sheathed the invisible blade she held quickly with a frown, brushing herself off. It seemed as if she hadn't done what he was expecting. Though he didn't seem upset at all, but maybe she shouldn't be quite so quick to act in the future. "Sorry, I'll keep that in mind" She bows politely while she awaits further instruction from the man. Though she couldn't say she was entirely thrilled with what was to come.

It was about as cliche as it comes, in fact it was almost something out of some anime. Though she wasn't sure it would really work, apparently the captain thought it would so she wasn't going to question what he said. It was lucky she had been training with Ragnar to help with this kind of thing, but it was going to be hard. Taking up the weighted items, she began to attach them to her body, first the ankle braces, then the wrist bracelets.

It seemed simple enough, just more running with a bit of extra weight... well, a lot of extra weight. It took the girl more than a moment to get used to all this excess mass as she moved over to her starting position once more. "Alright, here goes" She begins her run, sprinting to the best of her abilities, moving fairly slowly along her course, still not used to the weighted gear she was wearing. Her running seemed awkward, not the well practiced sprint she had shown only a moment before.

The whole situation was a little monotonous, though she seemed to be getting at least a little faster. Though she wasn't showing any signs of slowing down. Lap after lap, she worked on to push harder. Akane was making progress and Kaede would be able to see that. It would seem that the meek girl wasn't so useless, and that determined look on her face would mean she was going to keep on going until she collapsed or finally met her goal. Whatever would happen first, though from the steady progress she was making it would probably be the latter.

Without taking a single break, the girl had managed to match her old lap times at a sprint. Though it was taking a toll on her from the looks of things, ragged breathing echoing slightly throughout the cave area. She wouldn't slow down or stop though until her legs would buckle underneath her. After multiple laps of this excess work, she had even surpassed her fastest time from before. The unceremonious face-plant at the end though might bring something of a damper on the achievement. With a light groan she rolls over, letting her arms fall to her sides as she tried to catch her breath.

"How was that, taichou?" She looks over, sitting herself up with some rather strenuous effort she shakily moved to her feet. Taking Kaede's advice she shuffled over to the hot-springs, clearly quite ready for their theory lesson for the time being. In fact, she was tired enough that she didn't seem to care so much that the man was there as she shed her outer layer of clothing, slipping into the hotsprings with a satisfied sigh. It wasn't instantaneous but she was feeling better. Anything would have been better than however long she had been running. It had felt like quite a long time to her, though the captain might have a better idea as to just how long she had been running in that concentrated silence of hers.

Akane's apology, while unnecessary seemed sincere enough that even if Kaede had been angry at her for jumping the gun he wouldn't be any more. To him it seemed like she truly desired to please him as her instructor fulfilling his requests without question, any words she has spoken so far have been polite and respectful, quite the opposite of his former VC turned Maggots Nest warden. His showing off earlier apparently went unnoticed, or she didn't find it impressive enough to comment so when she was ready he would just shrug walking off to one side of the little track he had laid out, about halfway down the distance she would run he would sit cross legged and watch her run the laps. Her movements were awkward bordering on clumsy at first, and much slower, it was obvious that the weight on the end of her limbs was effecting her much how he had expected.

As the lap counts started to get up there the amount of time between them reduced as she adjusted to having the extra sixty pounds and the awkwardness in her limbs left her. As she cut her weighted lap speed in half hitting about the 40% mark of reaching her Goal Kaede was ready to step in and let her rest a bit but the determined look on her face stopped him. So long as she looked like that it would be both insulting and harmful to stop her early. Patiently waiting for either her determination to waver or for her to reach success depending on what would come first Kaede just watched keeping silent track of her improvements. It wasn't long before Kaede stopped keeping track of the total number of laps Akane had taken, even though she looked like she was about ready to collapse under her own weight she kept going matching her unweighted lap time and even surpassing it, though the faceplant at the end probably put a damper on her own excitement on her achievement.

Watching her roll over and try to catch her breath Kaede approached her saying, "That was great, though feel free to pace yourself more with me, especially in speed training. A lot of what this will be doing is adapting your body to moving with more weight than it will carry, it will take time and forcing it will hinder your growth." Offering a hand to help her up and get her to the hot springs. Once she made motions like she was going to shed her clothing to get in Kaede would pull the blindfold he had given her to wear earlier out and wrap it around his own face, sitting off to one side of the hot springs where he would be able to be heard with ease he would speak again. "Let me know when you are ready, don't rush yourself."

Akane seemed to be oddly driven for such a meek looking girl, maybe it had been a result of the training that she had been going through recently. If she was to be asked she wouldn't even have an answer to what drove her. In reality, it was mostly Arashi's doing. The goading and spiteful words had apparently rubbed off on her. She takes his hand to help herself up regardless, quietly thanking him as she moves off towards

That wasn't going to be readily apparent to Kaede however as the girl sunk down to her nose in the hot spring. Having calmed a little she seemed to remember her normal shy nature, hiding as much of herself as she could under the water, even with that blindfold. She hadn't thought her sudden loss of clothing through completely from the looks of things, but thankfully the captain had a little more foresight than the young shinigami he was training.

The girl couldn't help but wonder if she had disappointed her instructor, most of the time they had tried to push her further and further, but he seemed a little more concerned for her development. "I'll keep that in mind Taichou" She nods, though he wouldn't be able to see it of course. "So... Should we go over some theory now?" She raises an eyebrow, feeling better already from the apparent healing features of the pool. She would be ready to head out and get running again, but for now she figured that she'd take Kaede's advice and pace herself just a little bit. Plus, the springs were so relaxing.

From where Kaede was sitting he could hear her voice, and the slight shifting of her hair in the water as she nodded. It didn't take her long to be ready for the theory of stealth, so Kaede being the sort that he was decided to oblige her. "Stealth is all about being aware of your surroundings at all time. It is one thing to be like your sword and be invisible, hell in fact we can even use a Bakudo to perform that very same feat though with varying success based on those around you. Though what good is it to be invisible if you sound like a stampede, a single misplaced step can cost you your element of surprise and tip off those you are hiding from that you are there. To be stealthy is to be in a place without those around you knowing that you are there. This can be used most commonly when hollow hunting to sneak up on the creature and take its mask with one blow to reduce your chance of injury. Though you do not need to be out to kill someone/thing to require to be stealthy, it also helps with rescues and information gathering."

Kaede took a moment to collect his thoughts before continuing. "To this end things you will have to keep in mind, Awareness of your surroundings, suppression of your presence this actually covers many aspects, from suppressing your spiritual pressure, to hiding your intent, to hygiene related things like perfumes. While your body recovers, work on suppressing your reiatsu"

The girl floated away under the healing waters of the spring, feeling all her muscles relax and rejuvenate to their peak. This was quite the training ground Kaede had hidden away here. Maybe she'd need to find excuses for extra training here in the future! Though she listened over the theory portion of her lesson, though stealth wasn't the easiest thing to just explain really. Surely it'd be an easier thing to train rather than just explain away. Though she was listening intently to hear exactly what the man had to say, had she paper and a pen she'd be taking notes. "Hah, not sure I'd be cut out for the Second Division if I have to remember all that. Too much of a clutz" She rubbed a hand over the back of her head, apparently lightening up just a little bit.

An exercise though seemed a little better, even if was something simple really. Well, simple for most, even after her training with the Kidou Commander she had times when it was hard to suppress her reiatsu and she had never tried to keep it hidden completely. Regardless, she put to use Rena's previous teachings on the matter. Trying to settle the rather astounding amount of power. Going completely silent as she started to really focus. It took her a few minutes, with her spiritual pressure fluctuating until it vanished completely. Though that meant little, it was much easier to do when sitting completely still, but it'd almost seem as if she had vanished all together.

Though he was encased in perfect darkness Kaede could hear the water shift as she floated in it, smiling at her comment Kaede would respond, "For the most part it wouldn't be things you would have to consciously memorize, and should you end up in squad 2 we would make sure that it was second nature before you would have to put it to use. Stealth, like most physical arts can be trained into you such that you will be able to perform it with out even thinking about it. Just like you can get to the point where your body will be able to counter with Hakuda and Zanjutsu all on its own, being stealthy will just become natural. Though if you are as klutzy as you claim it, you will have a long road ahead of you to do it."

His words said Kaede would sit there legs crossed his senses stretched outwards, feeling the young Shinigami suppress her reiatsu, it's signature fluctuated as she seemingly struggled to get it under control. Then her presence vanished completely, it wasn't bad for starters. "Not bad for starters, little slow to get there. And based on how you struggled to get it under control I am guessing you will need a bit more practice before you can do it on the fly. Also keep in mind not having any pressure can be as suspicious as having monstrous amounts of it, especially if trying to blend into crowds, but that is more situational than anything else."

The girl nodded, though she hadn't really realized it just yet she had become quite a bit less klutzy since she had started training so hard. Particularly when fighting, despite her timid nature, it seemed to be a surprise to most who saw her fight just how fierce the little red-head could actually be. It was interesting though, hearing about the whole theory about it all. "Oh, well maybe I'm not cut out for second division" She giggled slightly, still focusing it would seem, letting her spiritual pressure raise slightly to more of a reasonable level this time. It fluctuated of course but it seemed stable enough to pass for the regular everyday soul for the time being. She had an astounding ability to learn it would seem, maybe that was why the captain commander seemed so keen on training the young girl.

Feeling nice and refreshed now that the hot-springs had done their job so far, so she slipped out and let herself dry off a little bit before she slipped her uniform back on. Finishing with tying her lovely red scarf around her neck. "You can take off the blindfold now. I think I'm think I'm ready to keep going!" she seemed to be a bit more peppy after the dip in the springs. Though she was still a little damp, she looked a lot more professional with her hair straight rather than the barely brushed mess it usually seemed to be.

Kaede shrugged as Akane giggled about not being cut out for squad 2, to each their own. From where he sat blind Kaede could feel her reiatsu fluctuate as she tried to make her presence like that of a normal soul in the world of the living. It took a moment before it stabilize but once it did she would have been able to pass for human. Well until someone checked her Reiraku but most don't know about that. Suddenly there was a splashing followed by the shuffling of clothes So she is ready to begin again Kaede thought, and sure enough a minute or two later the young woman confirmed it by telling him that he could take off the blindfold and that she was ready to keep going. Figuring that trips to the hot spring were going to be a re-occurring theme of this training session Kaede only pushed the piece of fabric up on his head so that it sat more like a head band than a blind-fold. Giving Akane a quick once over with he noted that she already put the weights back on. "Alright, well this round is going to be similar to the last one. Though you will be using Shunpo instead of running. The point of shunpo is to cover as great of a distance that you can in as few steps as possible, on your earlier lap it took you about eight steps per lap. It will probably be a few more with the increase in weight."

Kaede made his way back to the starting point of the little track he had laid out with the daggers. Once there he would say "Now you are to shunpo laps around the daggers untill one lap takes you six steps, or you get tired. Whatever comes first, remember no need to push yourself too hard. I made sure to leave my duties in the capable hands of my VC and third seat, so we have however long it will take."

It seemed the girl had gotten used to the weights at this stage, her gait was almost natural as she moved about to get a stretch in before they went back to work with the training session. It seemed like they'd be focusing on shunpo this time. It was a particularly advanced technique really, the greatest expression of Hohō that there was. Though she had learnt a lot, this would prove to be a challenge she was sure. Standing at the first of the daggers, the girl would visualize her path, aiming to try and limit the number of steps required to reach her goal. "I'll do my best, Taichou" she nods brightly and begins her first attempt

Though it was over in an instant, rushing forward as fast as she could, Kaede would have noticed that she had taken quite a few more steps to complete the lap. As before though, she would try again straight away. And again and again until it looked like she was out of breath. Thankfully, she had taken the captain's words to heart. Pausing for a few moments to rest on the field before heading right back to work. During these times of focus Akane seemed to go very silent, as if he wasn't even there. It was probably what allowed her to be such a good study.

With a mixture of breaks and fairly short but intense attempts at increase her time, Akane brought the number of steps down dramatically. Reaching the requisite six before finally stopping enough for a real break. At least this time she hadn't face-planted, but she did look a little worn out from all the training. "Was that better? Anything I could improve?" He might have a few pointers, but her technique was quite good. She wipes her brow and stretches again, happy to take a break but not feeling the need to jump into the springs just yet.

Akane definitely seemed more comfortable with the extra weight as she stretched readying herself to perform the next part of her training. Her laps took far more steps than they did unweighted at first but Kaede had expected that. Staying well out of the way of the track the red-haired captain watched her progress, wondering whether or not she would be getting hungry soon. Shoving that thought to the back of his mind Kaede was glad to see that Akane took his advise about not pushing herself too hard which was good. It wasn't long with her mixtures of breaks and laps before she had her step count down to where Kaede had told her she could stop, looking quite tired too much so to start the next part though obviously not ready for another trip to the spring Akane questioned Kaede. "That was pretty good actually nicely done. Do you need anything to eat or drink before we continue? If not you have a couple of options here, first is sit down and relax letting your muscles and reiryoku recover. Other wise will be to do more shunpo laps until you are ready to collapse, though as an added difficulty you will have to perform the steps while keeping your reiatsu completely suppressed. Sort of like you were tailing a target in a secluded area."
