This week training wise, has been a slightly lighter or lazier week than of late. Now and again it’s ok to pull back a little I guess. At least that’s what I’m currently telling myself. A run later is going to round the week off and next week it’s into first gear as I’ve still got my sights set on fighting mid July.
Despite slowing down a little this week training of late has been pretty good. I feel that I’m making progress but I guess I’m always making progress. You always do when you make the effort, and besides as this weekend is a nice long one next week onwards is most certainly about shaking off bank holiday cob webs and getting back into the swing of things. But I guess for now, I’ll let myself off.
When it comes to writing, it a seems to be a bit hit and miss with consistency at the moment and at points it’s become almost a second thought but seeing as it’s been going well over the past couple of years I’m going to make more of a point of catching up with you all on a weekly basis again. Excuses and procrastination often get in the way with these things. I put my energy into a lot of different areas and it’s not always as easy I’d like to maintain focus on every little thing.
Before I start whinging about procrastination (again) I’ve been pleased that just recently I’ve really made an effort with training and just adopting the like it not mentality has worked well. Being honest it always does, and training in itself has been pretty good. Some days it’s really technical and a good push other days it’s similar to training out in Thailand, usually finishing with 200 hundred knees on the bags and the rest.
Energy flows where attention goes as they say so after a long battle mainly against myself (that ones ongoing) getting back on the horse hasn’t really been as difficult a task as I once feared and in fact, just for this week not being at the gym as much as usual hasn’t been as much of a problem as I thought it was going to be.
Being a goal setter I’m hoping there’s a new goal to work towards from the beginning of June onwards. We shall see how that one pans out. Hopefully I’ll know more before the end of next week.
In the meantime there is as always a lot to work on, I guess by the end of next week I’ll have a lot more to talk about training wise, and being honest as long as I’m doing and not just talking then I’m a happy guy. Training for the sake of training is good and training to improve serves a purpose but training because you know your going to be tested is the best motivation ever.
I’m currently reasonably excited and still planning to head overseas in the future too. If I fight in July the show is going to be in Wales. They’re a good bunch round that way certainly something to look forward to and most definitely one to work towards. I’ve still got my beady little eye on fighting overseas, so will of course be keeping tabs on what’s happening there as well. I’ve gone from mildly deflated back to motivated again.
In the meantime. I’m enjoying the rest of the bank holiday weekend here, you can’t beat Monday becoming an extended Sunday and I guess some days there’s still no cure for lazy. Well, at least until Tuesday onwards anyway. Have a good week, train hard and just like the last time.. I’ll see you on that road.
