Workout Recap - Week of June 30, 2024

Short week for the statutory holiday on Monday, and frankly, I probably rather needed the extra recovery time. One of the downsides of being hyposensitive in general is that I often don't feel when I need to take a break. I do need to recognize that part of being older is needing more healing time.

This was a head-to-head defense day. The kru wanted us to focus specifically on returning quickly and decisively without giving up ground, so it was a banger of a class. I had a number of fast and intense rounds, where I tended to consistently wear down whoever I was working with. My stamina remains one of my most useful weapons.

This was a padwork day, focusing on power shots. Towards the end, we finished up with a few consecutive rounds of grinding out round kicks. Nothing much to say about it all, really; it was tiring but satisfying.

This was a body shot day, so theoretical long-time readers will know that my sadistic side got a thrill out of it. As always, I love getting a response from my padwork partner for these drills that suggests they are questioning the choices they made to end up across from me, and this day was no different. Simple, effective, and with all the pleasure of getting to beat another human; what's not to like?
