I'll be honest. It's 3am here in Britain and I'm a tad bored so I figured I may as well start a training log. It's a good way of making sure I stick to my routine and it always helps to get constructive criticism and feedback. 28 / March Was supposed to train eskrima for three hours this morning but I woke up late with a hangover so missed the class. Went for a 3 mile run in the evening and spent twenty minutes practicing to compensate. Not as good as an actual class but the most I felt like doing. 29 / March Eskrima. 2.5 hours, covered some basic single stick twirling at the start, learnt my first double stick drill, then for the rest of the session practiced knife blocks and disarms, then did some sparring using rubber knives. Knife vs knife, and empty hand vs knife. No run on Sundays, 30 / March Woke up late again, I'm quite undisciplined with my mornings. In the evening went to the MMA class, on Mondays the focus is on striking. 1.5 hours. 10 minutes skipping, sets of pressups, situps, burpees, then shadow boxing. Light contact sparring/drills. 4 strike attack, 4 strike defence - i.e jab - cross - jab - kick, jab - jab - hook - kick. Been trying to keep my shoulders relaxed, I've been told I tense up too much which tires me out too quickly. Final 20 minutes, medium sparring. Got told by a regular 'you get better every time we spar' - made me happy. 31 / March (Today) Woke up on time for once. 4 mile run, 15 minutes skipping, then 100 pressups, 100 situps, 100 squats. Evening session, thai boxing. 1.5 hours. The muay thai sessions are much more disciplined than the mma classes. 15 minutes skipping, 10 minutes calisthenics - 50 pressups, 50 burpees (I think, somewhat drunk right now) - three sets. Then about 4 sets of various ab exercises, 50 reps each. The remainder of the session is split 50/50 doing padwork, half the time I hold the pads, half the time I hit the pads. Still trying to work on staying relaxed. I remain very impressed by my sparring partners, they seem to dodge and weave around my shots with ease. I'll get em eventually though. Training has been very tiring, but very rewarding so far. I am thinking of training double sessions (three hours total) every night from now on. Mondays and Wednesdays = MMA then Boxing. Tuesdays and Thursdays = Thai Boxing then BJJ. I started training so I could learn to fight, and so I could learn to control my more aggressive emotions. When I am training, when I am sparring, all my troubles disappear. I do not release my anger in the ring, I don't take it out on my partners. When I am training, I just forget it. And that is the best thing I have ever experienced. Hope this log will not be too boring to anyone who reads it.
