Tue Feb 10

5 mile bike ride
20 minutes jump rope
3x3 shadowboxing
15 minutes warming up (I was already warm as I was about 40 minutes early)
60 minutes of various drills, both defensive and offensive
5x3 sparring with an insanely fast super middle
5 minutes stretch
5 mile bike ride

The guy I sparred (he held back) is my worst nightmare in the ring. Long arms, speed like Roy, and a good counter puncher. I went defensive and tried to focus on my jab. Didn't do bad according to bystanders.

Indeed it has but sparring with be a bit less this week I think. I almost broke my nose in sparring yesterday, there's a big lump on it now and a minor shiner under both eyes.

I'm going to do more shadowboxing in future workouts, I'm aiming for a 1:1 ratio between bag work and shadowboxing. I focus too much on punching hard, I need to loosen up. Was offered some sparring by the same guy who almost broke my nose on Thursday, which I respectfully declined. I can learn a lot from him, but I'm going to let things heal a little first. Perhaps Monday.

What are doing for recovery for the blood and bruises? I used to take epsom salt baths but not really sure how effective they were.

Nutrition. I make sure I get all the amino acids, fats, vitamins, (trace) minerals, anti-oxidants, anti-inflammants and other phytochemicals I need. In practice that means whole natural foods only. My diet contains things like seaweed, mustard seeds, loads of herbs, a dozen different teas, etc. I'm a food freak but not a big fan of modern nutrition "science", if you can even call it that.

A shiner only lasts a few days for me, some people walk around with it for weeks. I recover quickly from workouts, most people I spar with are about 10 years younger and train half the amount I do. I like to think it's working.

Yeah I understand the need for nutrition. The biggest weakness I had in Pre Early 2008 was my lack of knowledge in both training and nutrition. I'm a lot more open to peoples opinions and thoughts on those two subjects now. I used to go through the same motions and eat the same shit day in and day out and realized that I was never challenging my body or giving it the best fuel it needed. That's why I like these logs to see how people deal with training, nutrition, recovery, etc.
