Friday's Roadwork

I had hoped for a gym session today. However, the day got away from me and I didn't get to the gym. So I opted for more roadwork. I don't believe we can ever have too much good general conditioning, unless it causes our sport-specific training to suffer.

In today's case, I decided to make the best of a less-than-ideal situation. Therefore, I got out and did 48 minutes of roadwork. Again, while it's not my preference, it is something. Tomorrow and Sunday will probably be more roadwork. However, I feel it has been paying off. I commented about how much faster and stronger my 5-straight-punch combination is getting, so I am happy about that progress.

I tend to be a perfectionist and that's a tendency I am working to change. I can be committed to excellence while easing up on the pressure I place upon myself. I'm not training for a world championship and my recognition of that fact does not mean that I am going to be slacking in my workouts! Now, all I have to do is convince myself of that. :-)
