I didn't take a better picture this session so here is my sweaty face. My hair is freakin gross right now. I did the 20 mile cycle again today. Which means I didn't go to Unbreakable again. Partly because cramming my headguard into my work bag is not enjoyable in the morning and partly because … Continue reading I took a few direct punches to the face today but I’m feeing good
This is the state of my hoodie right now. I wore it on my bike ride home from the gym after my boxing training session tonight. The two layers beneath are even more disgusting and frankly I smell really bad right now. Today's session was pretty good. We were doing drills with Dave again. I … Continue reading I am getting sweaty and gross and back into good training habits
When I signed up for the second charity boxing match to raise money for Refuge, I was feeling ambitious. Despite being completely new and inexperienced to both boxing and asking people for sponsorship money, I managed to make it through the full ten weeks of training, put on a show I was fairly proud of … Continue reading Getting my first donation is a huge relief
For quite a while now, there's been an idea floating around among a group of my friends. It's dark and creative and it has evolved over time from a vague idea that we kind of half-heartedly chat about doing while we're drinking to something that we're actually putting a lot of work into that could … Continue reading The Squid is stirring…
This cloudy mess is the state of the mirrors in our gym after training today. Things got pretty gross. I was quite knackered by the time I arrived, if I'm honest. I left my headguard at home, so cycled from my office to home (just over 4 miles) to the gym (another 5.5 miles) between … Continue reading Boxing training for my second charity fight got sweaty today.
I'm going to be honest from the start here and say now that I've only seen one episode of this show. Usually, I wouldn't consider that enough of a TV show to know if it's going to be any good. Especially with shows on Netflix, where you can binge watch an entire season in an … Continue reading Disjointed is exactly the kind of sitcom that needs to die out already
So this is my face right now. Obviously training is off to a good start. It's at least smaller than last time. I'm enjoying training. I missed last week's sessions because I was busy being on antibiotics and feeling quite unwell. I didn't feel great today, if I'm honest. I only came off antibiotics yesterday … Continue reading My second Refuge charity boxing training is off to a colourful start
I have been so excited about reading this book that I put it off from the night I bought it until very recently, until I time when I knew I'd have the time to sit down and properly give it my full attention. Last weekend, I went to visit my friend in Canterbury and I … Continue reading Paul Livingston’s wonderful book makes the DAAS reality so human
Recently I have been watching Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix for a piece I may or my not write for an exciting project I'm contributing to. While I suspect I shall leave the majority of my thoughts until I've figured out what I'm doing with that, there is something that struck me that I want … Continue reading The media needs more rapists like Nathan Fillion in ‘Santa Clarita Diet’
Yeah, I'm doing that again. I had my first training session tonight and it was ... really nice. I haven't been to as many (read: any) training sessions since the last fight, but I've been cycling for at least an hour every day. on my way to and from work and wherever else I need … Continue reading I’m getting back in the ring!
