Monday Roadwork and Shadowboxing in the Snow

30 minutes this evening, as the light snow was falling. It was a lot warmer than it was yesterday; today it was about 30 degrees when I was out there. Woohoo! Summer! OK, maybe not yet, but soon!

I am hoping to get into a more regular rhythm with my training. Maybe one day in the gym, alternating with one day of roadwork and shadowboxing. I don't know yet, because I need to fit in weight lifting also. No worries. I'll figure it out.

Sunday Training

Quick roadwork and gym training yesterday. Here's the recap.
  • 15 minutes roadwork (very cold out there!)
  • 3 rounds shadowboxing
  • 3 rounds on the heavy bag
It was a brief workout because I got a late start and wanted to get home to watch the San Diego Chargers vs. New England Patriots and the New York Giants vs. Green Bay Packers.

I'm getting quicker on my repeated jabs (double, triple, quadruple...), and in hooking off my left jab. Now I just need to perfect it in sparring. That will happen, too. I'm enjoying training.

New Year, New Blog Stuff

It's now 2008 and the year is well underway. Things are already hectic, but manageable so far.

Since we're in a new year, I've made some changes to the blog. Here are the highlights of those changes.
  • Changed the blog to a new theme. I like the previous, darker theme, but decided to use something brighter during the winter.
  • Added some new pictures in the right-hand column. One is for humor, the other is from one of my bouts and has a link to more photos of the match.
  • Added a few links.
  • Arranged the links by category. Since this blog is about law, boxing, and blogging, I want to add many links, particularly about law and blogging itself.
I am currently struggling to decide whether to consolidate more material about the law of blogging into this blog. I'm very interested in publishing a blawg about blogging's legal issues, and I have started to do that at Blog Law Guy. I want to have more legal content here, since practicing law, rather than boxing, is how I earn my living. I am also trying to avoid having a lot of blogs on various subjects, because that very quickly becomes a really difficult practice to maintain over a long time.

I haven't resolved this issue yet, so let's just say I'm working on it. For now, dear readers, just sit back and enjoy the blog. :-)

Last Day of the Year

Ah, New Year's Eve. My training has gotten disrupted by the holidays. Yes, I know that's an excuse, but I am regaining focus. Today, out in the snow, I did 51 minutes of roadwork and shadowboxing. I wasn't trying to be tough by going out in the snow; I just wanted to get some activity in to close out the year. Best wishes to everyone for a great 2008!
