Monday: A Slacker Workout?

Yeah, I am probably being way too hard on myself to call today's training a "slacker workout." I felt like I was slacking, but it really is hot and humid, and even though I consumed a lot of water all day, I still felt pretty week at boxing practice tonight. Another part of it is probably that we had a really small group: just Bernard, Mike B., and me. Tim was picking up his wife at the airport, so he missed practice. With fewer guys, it's a lot harder because there is little or no rotation on the pads, so that's tough. Anyway, despite all of my whining, I did manage to do a workout. Here's how it breaks down.
  • 38 minutes of roadwork (very slow pace)
  • 6 rounds of shadowboxing
  • 5 rounds on the pads with Bernard
  • 2 rounds of situps
  • 2 rounds of stretching
  • 1 round on the heavy bag
While I write down what I did, I see that it's not as minimal as I had thought. Of course, this is not one of my more intensive workouts, but I did put effort into it, so I am happy with the results. Besides, as my grandfather (my dad's dad) liked to day, "The biggest room in the house is the room for improvement."
