87kgs – At least something is going in the right direction
Spent the week end recovering…I wanted to hit the gym but my body had decided he was not going to comply. I was physically exhausted
I feel guilty. Guilty when I don’t train, guilty when I eat and guilty for that glass of wine (oh dear), make that two, that I had. What is my opponent doing?????
As I write this , I am tired but I can’t sleep: it’s like I am in overdrive and my brain is now analysing everything I have gone through so far and looking for solutions.
In no particular order:
- improve my fitness
- footwork : man you are too static!
- combinations: how do I throw 4 to 6 punches in a meaningful way, and I mean stop looking like a disjointed robot
- defensive work: avoid , roll, catch but don’ t take 3 steps back
- speed: don’t be so slow!
I am drowning so I need to make a plan. Improve one step at a time.
As I am taking notice of all my weaknesses I am getting more aware of my (rare) strengths: long reach and counter. Focus on those, work on your weaknesses.
I am struggling but yesterday I got more determined then ever. I am going back tonight and tomorrow it’s sparring: I will quickly know how big a mountain I have to climb!
More later in the week….
