5 Rounds padwork with partner

It's been weighing on my mind that I should try sprinting this hill near my house. It's quite a large, steep hill. I had to walk home from work one day and it was awful.

So I set it up as an interval. Light jog down, turn around sprint as far up as I can (turned out to be halfway) walk a quarter, then back up to a jog for the last quarter. Did this 5x. Goal for next time is to eliminate the walking part. I'll bring a stop watch and a heart rate monitor if I can next time, think it took me 45 mins overall.

5 Rounds on pads, movement and endurance already better than yesterdays.

Try for a nap and muay thai tonight.

23 today!

Wanted to do hill sprints today. My feet have been killing me since monday and it's confirmed that it was from doing these when I put my shoes on. It hurt to walk. I didn't do my hill sprints, will tackle them again on Saturday.

Fighter's class with Kajan. Shadowboxing. Hit the bag and we alternated rounds on pads with Kajan. Got 4 rounds in with him and god knows how many on the bag. There's a specific combo that he gave me that I really like, going to work it hard. Not going to put it on here in case the anonymity of this log is compromised. Then we did wrestling stuff. Starting to get more comfortable with the idea of actually taking someone down. The emphasis today was really getting low and deep under someone. Easier said than done in my experience but I felt like I made some improvements today. The new follow through Kajan gave me for shooting from a southpaw, shoot in for a double leg, driving forwards, instead of swinging the legs to the left and dropping them as I did last time, I threw the legs to the left and lifted high with my right arm at the shoulder, like steering a big wheel to the left. Then as you drop down, gable grip at the legs, hop over to the other side and into the leg cradle. Drilled just shooting in with partners and then fighting for a takedown from that position. Brutal class and I'm feeling more and more drained lately.

Standup sparring 8 rounds. Took a few and gave a few. Then I played dummy while Bill Mahood was teaching one of our fighters some tricks of the trade. Body is feeling VERY run down right now. Not doing another class this evening.

No Gi

Warmup, positional drilling from side control. Rolled. Did pretty well.

This week has turned out to be a lighter workload than I wanted, my body's been giving warning signs.

Sunday. Rest.

Monday Gyms closed for the holidays. Rest.

Tuesday -

Felt much better today coming off two days of rest makes a big difference.

Did No-Gi and we worked some takedowns and takedown defense. Then we rolled and I did very well. Stuck around afterwards to do some extra rolling while waiting for Muay Thai class.

Muay Thai

Warmup, drilled combos for most of the class, drilled parries to counter knees, pyramid squats/kicks, sparred six rounds, stuck around for extra work. 3 rounds regular on bag, then 3 rounds cycling 20 seconds regular and 10 seconds sprint punching or kicking.

11 days to fight. Train the rest of this week then I chill. I've got like two shifts left at work and then I can relax even more.

Weight is fluctuating around 195lbs at wake up right now. Lowest so far was 193 this past weekend. So that's on track, water loading officially begins on Friday.

No injuries to report. A couple bangs and bumps that will heal up fine.
