frustration, more rest needed
Kickboxing lesson today to see how things feel. Felt great at the gym, but afterwards, was definitely feeling worse pain in my back. I think I’ll have to really take it easy the next few weeks, which really is gonna suck. I was so optimistic about jumping into training, but I guess my body just wasn’t ready for that level of training yet. But I still have a voracious desire to be learning all I can – I’ll just have to ease into things moving forward.
As far as what we actually worked on today, getting more and more into kicking technique shows me how much I really do suck at it. But I am getting better. My thai kicks are getting more and more solid. Putting those together with push kicks into combinations is an exciting step to take, but when I do those combos, I definitely lose the technique and my power suffers. So I’m gonna make sure that I have the technique in muscle memory before I spend too much time practicing on my own and conditioning – another good reason to ease into things moving forward.
