21.07.15 Severe allergy segued into a cold this morning and felt abominable throughout the day, drowsy, no energy. Too paggered to even think about a work-out, I was thinking to take the day off from training but I've grown sick of something always coming up. It had reached 38.2 by this afternoon with 93% humidity so I did the most logical thing I could think of when having a bad cold - I went outside and began working and in a few brief minutes water was pouring out of belltoller and with the water went the hacky-lazies - long enough to help me through a little bagwork. 70lb Canvas 7 rounds @ 1 1/2min/rndNo preliminaries, no warm ups and I had already sweated a great deal and didn't want to waste anything further. I equivocated regarding my round times - I'd lost a lot of endurance since early spring and I've been keen to want to recoup it as much as possible but I'm taking it slow for reasons Timer set for 1min 30 sec with 30 sec rest Jabs, crosses, hooks, simple 1-2 combo, squat, repeat. That's right. Squat - as in barbell back-squat, all the way down nearly sitting on my heels - warn't in a good way to be creative with footwork this evening and the squat satisfies two birds at the same time. Did take pains to move around the bag at all times. 150lb Muay Thai 1 Rnd @ 3minSince I've not been on the MT, which is a knuckle-breaker, I'd decided its time to begin trying to recondition my hands which've become soft over the months. Time taken to re-wrap hands with a dryer and better quality wrap. 1-2 rapid burnout That was the longest three minutes I can recall in some time. Whoa - I've a long walk back to the base, as they say. No more off-the-wagon-shenanigans for me.
