Hello everybody! Sorry, we haven’t been speaking lately. It’s just that I’ve been having very long days and I’m finding it difficult to sit down and catch whatever stuff is happening and share it with all of you quicker. Anyway, mostly, life is all about Muay Thai. Yesterday I did 300 roundhouse kicks. I’m working on power strikes, trying to make my legs align properly, to deliver blows that can actually hurt more than an ant. It is hard work but I’m enjoying every second of it.
Last month, I got ill for two weeks and it truly shits me that I could not train but all is well now and I caught up as best as I can. I have also met new people, other great guys and girls who have been fighting for a long time. Naturally, it is difficult not to question what the fuck am I doing there each time I see their striking, but they are all supportive and tolerating of my incompetence. It’s all good fun.
What else can I tell you? Oh, I have yet to write my book review for Everyday by David Levithan. It’s so awesome. Have you read that one yet? Truthfully, I have not started anything after it, which I finished last month. I am slacking big time, I know, but I channel most of my energy into training as I won’t last if I do not concentrate. Apart from striking with all limbs, I have to build stamina and work on my cardio. Whew. Just thinking about it makes me lose breath. It is much exhausting work, but I get so much out of it. For instance, abs. 😉
PM, I have a great appretiation for mostly boring, occasionally interesting peepsthat can spend an afternoon doing 300 roundhouse kicks. Glad to find this blog again
hi, thanks for that. hit the follow button to keep in touch! have a lovely day. 🙂
those words MAKE YOURSELF PROUD hit hard. i really have to do something to make me strong, healthy and happy.
hi, lovely hearing from you, too. go and do something to make yourself proud. the hardest bit of it is the first day or first time but the rest will likely follow easier. can’t wait to hear about your adventure!
You sound very kick ass in this post PM! The positivity and enjoyment just flows through the words like an ocean current. Very nice!
oh no, i’m not there yet but i’m training to be. as i’ve said, it takes a lot of hard work. no complaints though. one of the most important things muay thai does for me is it anchors my sanity. plus whatever tension or stress i feel for a day i only carry up until i reach the gym then it’s all out and i feel good. how are you going? been exercising lately too?
I am well thank you PM. I exercise daily ma’am – every time I move my fork from my plate to my mouth. 😀 Glad you’re really enjoying yourself. Your happy posts are far more enjoyable than your slightly darker writings. Have a pleasant day!
thanks, you too. dark writings?
When you are somewhat morbid and focusing on negative thoughts (writes the hypocrite who writes that way all the time); that’s what I mean by dark writings Ms. PM. Hope I did not offend sweet lady.
no, you didn’t. but it’s true, i do vent on paper most times.
You’re not nearly as bad as I Ma’am. Besides, it is YOUR blog. I think we use our sites as possible ventilation (if that is a good word in this instance) zones.
i don’t vent as much as before though. sometimes there is a feeling that there is too much exposure.
I can understand that Ma’am – some parts of a person’s life are deserving of privacy.
I REALLY LIKE THIS POST 🙂
hi, thanks. are you into training, too?
muay thai also? i used to run before i trained but since i began training i did not have time for proper runs. i do sprints as a part of my cardio workout though.
