Here are some updates from friends who are fellow boxers and fellow bloggers. I recommend reading these guys regularly.
My Boxing Blog
My friend Marc, who lives in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, has returned to his training! Woohoo! He even entitled his first blog entry, "Joy of Training." How's that for inspiring? I really enjoy seeing others who consider their training fun and joyful.
It is amazing that Marc finds time to do any training, given his work and school schedule. He is following the same career path I took. Mark is an information technology professional and is attending law school at the same time. That's how I did law school. I could blog lots more about that experience--and I probably will--but for now let me just say it is intense.
So welcome back to training, Marc. Way to go, and keep up the good work!
Nerd of Steel
Our man, Nerd of Steel, has returned to his training, too, after taking some time off to allow his ankle to heal from an injury. Welcome back to training, Nerd! To deal with the inevitable muscle soreness that comes from returning to training after a layoff, and even after routine hard workouts, Nerd offers "5 Tips To Handle Muscle Soreness." They're all effective methods, though I have to say I am not fond of the ice baths. Brrrrr.
Kieran O'Leary takes a walk down memory lane as he tells us about a match he had, a little over 4 years ago, with an investment banker nicknamed "Spider." He posts a video of that bout. It's definitely worth watching to see Kieran in action. Good job, Kieran!
