I won’t ever be ready for fight night to be one week away but it’s here anyway!

This is my hair right now. It's pretty grim. I am very much looking forward to washing it. Today was a fairly relaxed session. We are now only one week away from the fight. In seven days time it'll all be over. Yet again, I did not notice those nine weeks go by AT ALL. … Continue reading I won’t ever be ready for fight night to be one week away but it’s here anyway!

Nine days until fight night and my face already hurts

Tonight was the last session we really hit each other before fight night. After last week's session, I didn't feel anywhere near confident enough that we were only two weeks away. Tonight I am a bit more confident. We were sparring again.

Tonight fucked me up. In many ways I was not prepared for today's session. Not least because I spent last week desperately trying to get my vandalised bike to the shop to fix it before it closed and failing.

We were focused more on practicing getting the techniques right rather than pushing ourselves to our limits. We will need to do that soon enough because ultimately being in the ring is an extremely tough six … Continue reading Today’s relaxed training session is what will keep me alive in the ring

I took a few direct punches to the face today but I’m feeing good

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

I am getting sweaty and gross and back into good training habits

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
