Hills and valleys pt 3

Evening all. Here we are again you and me. It’s nice to catch up and I hope you’re well. 🙂 I’ve just got back from my first training session of the week, still feeling mildly tenderized from sparring but life’s like that some days.

I spent last week complaining about being injured and this so far this week wondering why people heavier than me are sparring fairly hard. I also managed to spend the last round of sparring tonight on the back foot, with a little voice screaming “stand your ground! Do something!” my last round today was with my trainer.

He’s tough and I’ll admit it I think today I was scared of him. Walking into people and taking them to pieces is what he does really well. That little voice was right. I do need to stand my ground. I need to remember to stop worrying and just remember that when it comes to fighting it’s not about what they are going to do to me, but it’s more about what I am going to do to them.

Fighting’s not an easy world to be in and it’s not something I have to do out of necessity but it’s something I’ve chosen to introduce myself to again because I enjoy it and I believe in myself and I want to get better at it. So here I am, deciding not to pull myself to pieces over little things and setting my goal on standing my ground. On fighting back. It’s not rocket science and you have to push yourself in the gym. Besides it’s not that bad is it? Heavens don’t open and the sky doesn’t fall.

If I get beaten up in sparring I need to toughen up and give as good as I get. Here’s to not getting knocked out on Thursday. Bags and pads tomorrow afternoon. Have a good week, train hard and I’ll catch up with you on Sunday. And just like the last time.. I’ll see you on that road.
