Monday's Practice Session

Today was good. Today was focused. Today was productive. I worked hard and felt really good. Here's my training report.
  • 25 minutes of roadwork
  • 8 rounds on the pads with Bernard
  • 5 rounds on the heavy bag
  • 4 rounds on the double-end bag
  • 3 rounds of shadowboxing
  • 3 rounds on the uppercut bag
  • 3 rounds of stretching and situps
In total, that is 26 rounds plus the roadwork. It's not the 30 rounds I had hoped to do today, but it's a decent workout nonetheless. I am eager to resume sparring.

We had a fairly good attendance today. In addition to me, Rich, Cory, Kevin, and Mike B. were there. Tim is out of town on business (I am sure glad I don't have his job!) and he won't be back until Friday, which means he won't be back to our practices until next Monday. I am hoping to recruit a few more guys to join us. I know that they will probably become regulars after they attend just one or two workouts with our team. Pat also told me he is hoping to join us soon.

I have a few more club updates, but I'll post those next time when I am not so tired. Now, it is time to get some sleep!

I aplogize for my ignorance, but what do you mean when you use the term "roadwork"?

Hi Russell,

Thanks for reading. By "roadwork," I mean basically running, and sometimes walking or walking combined with running, often with short periods of shadowboxing intervals just to keep things interesting. It's "work" done on the "road." (Although sometimes it's indoors on a running track or treadmill.) :-)
