Yesterday´s session was hard for me, I have been sick earlier in the week , but even if it was hard I did it…
After some killer stretching exercises with Remy and Mikael ( who suddenly decided to join our stretching challenge, not sure I like that ! 🙂 ) , we started with drills on mitts and light sparring. the tempo was high and I fighted to the end to get this done !
Mikael put the Redman on and we had a harder sparring session.
I want to talk about protection today, it did not take too long for me to be stuck against the wall but I punched and kicked my way out a couple of times but then I lost my focus and bend my body too much so Mikael´s punch ended up in my breast.
Let me tell you, breast protection is as needed as groin protection in sparring, I lost my breath a couple of minutes and could not go on with the fight. This is something to think about because all you need is one good punch in the right place and that´s it. I use to look like a little crazy mosquito when I sparr and it felt like someone just slapped me flat !
Joke aside, this is not a good feeling, I never wear protection but I may start.
Now about the stretching challenge , Remy and I had decided to be able to do the splits on July 1st. Now Mikael has joined the party but he is ahead of us…….
We had a great session with Remy and André yesterday, two really determined guys who work very hard and who have a great spirit and sense of humour. Mikael is always mixing seriousness and jokes , we always have such a great time!
