Workout Recap - Week of February 11, 2024

This was a neat week, working on some less common techniques as we're getting some competitive fighters geared up for a big event to close out February. I will be unable to attend that, which apparently means "I suck" (according to the kru), though honestly, I'm not sure if I'd have wanted to go even if it was reasonable. While I did enjoy the two events that I went two in their own vacuums, they were quite long and tiring, both from spending a lot of time sitting and from needing to constantly be ready to socialize meaninglessly. Well, it's a moot point to dwell on for now, anyway.

 

Monday

 

Muay Thai class


This was a day for working on extended offense. I was in a trio with a complete newbie, which meant the overall intensity of the class for me was pretty low in order to help them get started out (which I'm always fine with, to be clear; it's a good opportunity to review my own understanding when I'm trying to teach and give feedback), but we did some drills involving knee strikes, so I still had a fun time. It was a solid class overall.


Tuesday

 

Muay Thai class


This was a day for working on stuff like spinning backfists and elbow strikes. I was in a trio again, not with any newbies this time, but I was unfortunately stuck with two people who didn't seem to want to train seriously. I tried switching to partner up with a competitive fighter who came a bit late, but the kru had some special preparation in mind for them that she didn't want to execute through me, so I remained stuck in my personal purgatory. I didn't get much of a workout, either, so this was mostly a wasted class for me (and frankly, I think it's pretty hard to suck the fun out of elbow strikes for me, so it's a real testament to how demotivating my alleged partners were this day).


Wednesday

Muay Thai class

This was a boxing-focused day, with a nice mix of fundamentals and intermediate flowing between offense and defense. I felt like I was moving well, and I had the right sort of muscle soreness afterwards to suggest that I was rotating my torso violently with my punches. The whole thing was a nice confidence-booster for me, as well as being a return to enjoying my training.


Thursday

Muay Thai class


This was another extended offense day to close out the week. My front kicks seemed to have a resurgence in their performance, and I felt like I was moving smoother than usual in following them up with more attacks. We did some drills mixing in knee strikes, too, so I was bound to have a good time. My stamina held up well, and all in all, this class left me more hyped to keep grinding than any other I've had in a while. Maybe I'm finally getting over my extended depression spell.
