One of the things, I really enjoy about living in Ireland is the amount and variety of training I’m getting down. It’s also – on the other hand, one of the things, that cause my muay thai to tread water.
Since I’m no longer able to jump on my bike and get to training on my own (gym being about 40k away), and the amount of sparring partners are zero, I’m not getting nearly as many hours with gloves on, as I would like to.
On the other hand, I’m re-acquainting myself with Ross 50 days challenge and getting a lot of Kettlebell, Running, Powerlifting and a little Olympic Lifting in on my training schedule.
On the Ross, I’m on day 18th: GPP 4
* 100 Rope turns
* 10 push ups
* 10 squats
-10 circuits as fast as possible –
My time was 15 minutes for 8 rounds. I forgot to time it from the start, and am still not sure if I did two or three rounds before I looked at the watch. Lost a bit of time on the skipping, got my toes smashed by the wire rope a couple of times (about 2 or 3 times pr set)and had to stop and curse a few times, before continuing.
Yesterday boasted of a vicious circuit with Liam and two of his fitness crazed friends in the morning and thaiboxing in the evening. Oh, and Muay thai at Brucies was cool, and there was another female! Yay!
Today Liam and I did the 8K in the rainy hills, followed by a short core session. I feel almost entitled to eat all my liquorice from Denmark.
On work department it seems like I get the chance to meet one of my big heroes, will keep you posted. But for me – it’s way up there with meeting Fedor Emelianenko, Georges St. Pierre and Saengchai (former Sor Kingstar) Kotmuay Saenchai MuaythaiGym.
