Sunday and Monday Roadwork; Mental Game

Did 35 minutes yesterday and today.  It went well.  I didn't get to yesterday's fight club session, and I'm bummed about it because those are fun.  I'll see if I can schedule a one-on-one session with Glen this week.

I'm making some progress on the mental game.  So far, I am mainly using visualization of footwork, proper balance, and practicing punches and defense.  It's good to do mental rehearsal of the basic boxing techniques.

Since the proper movements and their sequence can be fairly complex, practicing it all in my mind first is very helpful.  That practice also seems to make defense and counter-punching flow a lot more naturally.  Additionally, I find the mental rehearsal/visualization to be useful for planning strategy and alternatives to it, just in case my opponent doesn't go along with the brilliant bout-winning strategy I intend to use!
