Yesterday was the first class I’d had in 3 weeks, so I had some general aches and pains, nothing too bad. I hadn’t been to the shops so my breakfast wasn’t really ideal.
I’d normally be at work before evening training, not being so allowed me to eat a pretty decent amount of food which fuelled a pretty good workout. I was sparring for the 5th time today against a guy with an equal body type to me but who was more experienced and in much better shape – we were pretty even until later in the rounds. The second round I did better at working round his jab with some slipping and parry counters, I intended to use my right cross and overhand to counter over his jab but I forgot to in the heat of things.
Just realised I really need to record a current accurate height, weight etc for myself. Last time I checked I’m around 6’0” and 155 pounds.
