Day 61 – Who runs the world… girls! Happy IWD!

Happy International Women’s Day!

This lucky lady started her day with a 6:30am workout. It was tough and it killed me for the rest of the day. I had a terrible sleep the night before because I had work on my mind and I was also worried I was going to sleep in (despite the fact that I wasn’t getting up any earlier than I normally do anyways!). All in all, there was at least one moment in time today where I felt like I was asleep standing up.

Which leads me to boxing training this evening. I was definitely tired from a full day already and was late arriving to the gym because I got caught up with what I was doing at work. Thankfully Rey still let me come and spar. I was sorry I was so late though for my sparring partner. It definitely wasn’t my best work, but it definitely went better than Tuesday’s session. Footwork, footwork, footwork is on the agenda for the next while. We filmed my sparring which was really helpful because right away I could see what Rey was worried about. I have developed a really bad footwork habit and it is one that I need to break immediately. There is always something it seems. But I have learned my lesson about over-training today and sadly my bootcamps will have to wait until after the fight.

So, since I am struggling to keep my eyes open, I think I am going to start to listen to my body and just go to bed. But before I do, I will leave you with two women fighters who kick some serious butt in the ring (one a ring and one an octagon). To two of my faves – Ronda Rousey – UFC Fighter Extraordinaire, and Ireland’s Boxing Wonder Woman – Katie Taylor….Happy IWD!
