Month: September 2012

Birthday !!!!

it was an amazing day, I started the celebration already a week before with a trip to my country, I visited my family , childhood friends and former colleagues. I had a great time celebrating old memories. I met some people I had not seen in years which was a surprise. Unfortunately not everything was joyful as I lost an aunt , she passed one month ago and I did not know about it. It made me reflect on the fact that thinking I have time to do things later or talk to people at a later point is not a good idea, there were things I had to talk to her about and I missed my chance , it made me so sad…

On the big day I was back in sweden, first I visited my colleagues at work and they had prepared a surprise with balloons cake and presents! then Mikael had done the same thing, I found champagne and chocolates on my table when I came back and later that night after training he brought this fantastic painting to me. I had asked him at least a thousand times to paint Bruce for me , at the end I had given up the thought and was not asking anymore so I really did not expect this which made the surprise so much bigger !!! this one is mine and especially made for me ! I am so happy  🙂

Private session

On wednesday I was the only one training, we worked on pads , feeding and reaction , combinations and kicks .

I added some pushups situps and  weight lifting. I was happy I could do pretty clean pushups and was able to use my arm almost with no problem. Recovery for me is almost complete this is good news.

I regained almost all my muscles as well, this is thanks to the work I did at the gym these two last months.

During training especially sparring I am careful now because I cannot offer a third injury , I am now out of the tunnel and so glad I can train as usual.

I won´t be able to train on sunday because tomorrow I am going home to France, I will only be there a few days and back just in time for next group session:-)

2/9/2012 First outdoor training

That first outdoor training was very nice even if it rained, we had a great time and were pleased to see a lot of people showed up.

From the newest members Mikael Göransson, Adam Torssel, Nicolas Nikander, and the “old” ones, Will Remy Mikael and I.

We worked on pads combinations and feeding punches first then kicks.

We moved the party to the stairs and after that to the backside of the slope, some of us had someone on their shoulders and some just ran up.

That as usual is finishing us for good, as a reward we had prepared some fermented herrings ………….

Here is how it went, first Remy opens the can and everyone is going away, the smell is horrible !

Remy started,  first you have bread potatoe onion and fresh cream and you hide that thing somewhere in there !  Remy did not like it but he ate it anyway ! I was next and I swear I tried to keep that first bite in but there was no way I would swallow this thing, so it came out again! Both Adam and Nicolas were very brave and after a while I noticed one of us had just disappeared, Will was nowhere in sight !  Mikael G stayed but he did not try .

Now let´s have a summary,  2 chickens, one half chicken ( me ) and 3 brave guys,  what does it left us with ? one crazy person guess who ? of course Mikael ate two raw straight out of the can with nothing else , I felt sick just looking at him do that!!!

Well there won´t be any further attempt from me, this thing is so disgusting I understand why Swedish people have to rinse their mouth with vodka when they eat that !

Anyway, next time there will be food after the training session it will be French, ( that is why we call it food ! )

Thank you all for this Sunday , we had a great time.
