Yesterday, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Lance Godard at 22 Tweets, an innovative use of the Twitter micro-blogging service that publishes “[r]eal-time Twitter interviews with practicing lawyers who tweet.” It was a great experience; we had an enjoyable talk about some of my professional and personal interests. Here is a link to the interview.

Thanks, Lance and 22 Tweets, for your interest; it was great to talk with you and it's good to get to know you, too.

Sunday's "Fight Club"

Had a good session on Sunday with Glen, Jeff, and Eric. It was good to see Eric back in action after a few weeks.  We did a lot of drills and I got two good rounds of sparring in--one with Jeff and one with Eric.

Glen pushed us really hard this week.  It was a great workout.  I am liking these Sunday morning sessions; they're a great way to start the week.

I also did one hour of roadwork.  It was good training.  Hopefully, we'll have a few more guys at the workout next Sunday.

Nobody Here But My Roadwork and Me

Ever have one of those weeks in training that did not go as you had planned it? It's such a week for me.

I didn't get to "fight club" on Sunday because fierce sinus congestion and headache made me immobile until around 10 am. I really missed seeing the guys, sparring, and doing all the practice drills, but after not sleeping well, I wasn't exactly eager to get punched in the face!

My plans to get to the gym later in the week have been foiled by work and helping my parents with some improvements at their home. Thus, training this week has just been roadwork. Here's the breakdown for the early part of the week:

Sunday:  1 hour and 5 minutes
Tuesday:  52 minutes
Wednesday:  31 minutes

It's less than optimal, but I am in this for the long haul, so when I keep that in mind, it seems alright.

Busy Week

Not a lot to report. Sunday's workout with the guys was really good, including lots of drills and two good rounds of sparring. My footwork was a little sluggish, so I spent some more time with my friend the jump rope this week. Along with that, did I some roadwork and some visualization exercises and some mental rehearsal (aka visualization). Work has been busy, so I haven't blogged as much as I like. Oh well, I will get caught up.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
