30.03.15 Muay Thai fading to slow day

Leave a comment

We get ready for the eight unlock Muay Thai session this morning. Another week is on. 

Instead of doing BJJ in the morning we turn the table and start with Muay Thai today. It’s a boxing station and we do skipping rope for starters, then shadow boxing before we do a few combinations with partner.
From there it’s the same formula with pad work, bag work and sparring. I get a Russia guy in the last round of sparring and once again it’s a rather uncontrolled character. Sparing here is light and meant to be more games than fights. Otherwise people would stop coming to training if it’s a risk of getting knocked down. He come in swinging like his life depends on it, but stop abruptly and get the message when I jab him square in the face. From there he calms down and we end up with a decent work out.
The project of three hundred sit ups and one hundred push ups is still ongoing, but still not in a form worth bragging about.

We get a massage before lunch and go back to the hotel. We have several hours until BJJ starts in the evening and we fill it with sun, pool, reading, sleeping and blogging.
When it closes to the new session we fade away and end up with a slow afternoon instead. We’ll turn the sessions around again tomorrow as the evening BJJ is gi only. Hopefully we’ll get two sessions that way.

Humongen! The big guy! The man, the myth, the legend! And then theres' me. The nice guy in the house. The man without cooking skills, but with five stars on the Playstation. Boss at work, relaxed at home. What you see is what you get. Life is good. I choose it to be.
