I just officially booked my trip to Phuket for my October break. WOOHOO! I am so excited to be training at Sinbi Muay Thai for 2 weeks and 3 days. This will be my first time training at a camp for more than a few days. Dan will be heading to Koh Lanta to train […]Read more "Phuket Bound"
As I write this I am downing a bag of DELICIOUS banana chips. Part of my eatwhateveriwant phase of training. Although, I will regret it in 15 minutes when I go train. I don’t know if banana chips count as a preworkout food. Anyway, August 14th. Alright, I can do […]Read more "Lesson learned: Red bull gives me too many wings."
It’s been way too long since my last post. I have made Dan promise to keep me in check; blog once a week. Since I haven’t written in a while, I have to go backward to move forward. So much has happened that, too much has happen to not go back and share. In my […]Read more "Stepping backward to move forward"
This was a rough 4 weeks or so. I bounced back and forth between having confidence to wondering whether or not I should even fight. I started training again after maybe 2 weeks off; from crazy travels to being sick, I needed the time. Getting back into it wasn’t difficult, but getting myself […]Read more "Fight Number 2"
I walked away from my opponent and towards the opposite corner. I noticed my trainers jumping in the ring and one had water, so I changed directions. Was the fight over? Did I just win? One of the last nights of training before my fight, the promoter told us he would be taking us to […]Read more "Reflecting on my 1st fight… I really fought in Thailand.. wait, what? Real life?"
and I have battled them to complete this entry. The past two weeks have been absolutely insane. Let’s kick it off with Dan’s fight on December 27th. Crazy emotion filled night. We got home around midnight and ate dinner, got to bed around 1:30am. Up bright around 730am, I needed to train before we headed […]Read more "Here’s an update. On a side note, ants now live in my computer"
Every time I sit down to update everyone on life over here in Thailand, I only think of my upcoming fight. I have two entries half way written. I end up stopping and googling some fights on youtube or looking up clinch techniques. It’s my first fight. I don’t feel like I’ve trained hard […]Read more "I’m going to have pancakes in Chiang Mai tomorrow and a beer, maybe two. But first, I fight tonight."
Up bright and early, around 5:45 Dan and I get ready to go workout. Today, I decided I would run to the gym since I was told I needed to run 6 kilometers every morning. I threw on my sunflower sweatshirt (Dan was worried no one would be able to see me in my black […]Read more "Territorial dogs are a good motivator to run faster."
This is a big day for me. HUGE even. I have been writing off and on about my first weekend excrusion alone, but I just had to mark this day down in history, this post had to come first! (The other will soon follow because.. now I have a computer and a keyboard. I missed […]Read more "I HAVE A COMPUTER and I got hit in the face with a dragonfly."
Just about two weeks ago, I learned I do not in any sense of the phrase “go with the flow.” (Yet.) I had considered myself pretty easy going before this weekend, but wherever the flow was going… I was not on board. You could even say I was paddling against the flow. Dan and I […]Read more "It was a Good Idea to Rent a Moped"
