Today's Training

Our coach, Bernard O'Shea, returned from his vacation in sunny Cancún, Quintana Roo, México today. It's great that Bernard got to take a week off; he deserved the break, IMHO. Since he is back, the Chicago Athletic Association boxing team had its first scheduled practice since April 5. It's great to have him back.

Four of our club's boxers attended the workout: Justin (he's new), Mark V., Kevin, and me.

My workout was decent. Here's the breakdown:

  • 28 minutes of roadwork
  • 2 rounds of shadowboxing
  • 8 rounds of work on the pads with Bernard
  • 2 rounds on the heavy bag
  • 2 rounds on the uppercut bag
  • 3 rounds on the double-end bag
  • 1 round of stretching

All in all, not a bad workout. I didn't get to do any sparring, but that's alright. There's always next time.
