A new injury.. a new strategy

Things were going well..I was still training, still eating, maintaining my size (well that parts not going so well!)

Ive even found a training buddy, we had a spar, and since he has actually had a few fights under his belt its fair to say he won the boxing side of it.  When it came to kickboxing, well… He won that aswell.. but I did manage to land a few kicks and feel more in my element..

But back to progress.. In the past week I decided I would give running a go.. The positive was I can easily jog for 10 mins without stopping.. Years ago the idea of jogging 10 mins was unheard of.. so thats good..

The bad news is I keep getting shin splints.. I put this down to the combination of Jogging/Skipping I have been doing.. So I have decided to take a week or two off doing any exercise that punishes the shins as much as those two do.

Now yesterday I had a nice workout, but today I woke up with great wrist pain.  I am hoping it is a short lived pain so I can get back into it.. But until it heals I have decided I will settle for 1 hour of fast walking on an incline at the gym.

Today is exactly three months from when I will land in Thailand.. I am still at 112kg mark, so 12 to go within the next 3 months.  Is doable, as long as I dont behave like I did over the previous month.

Even though 100kg isnt really something many would be proud of saying they are.. I know I will be damn proud!

  1. try switching up your cardio and the high impact exercises. Have tried incorporating yoga into your fitness routine. It’s an excellent way to give your body a break from the high intensity forms or exercise but it has the added benefit of helping the body heal itself. I’d like to hear how that goes.
