Day 93 – Get involved!

Sorry there will be 2 posts today… I tried to get this one out to people for a couple of days, but was running into technical difficulties with the video. So enjoy the double whammy posting day! And without any further adieu….

Wow – the power of sleep is an amazing thing! Just having a full night’s sleep last night (Wednesday) has made an unbelievable difference in my boxing tonight. Thank goodness!!

I was kind of worried that I had overdone things yesterday at training… Rey knew I was tired and for the first time since I started training, I only did 2 rounds of sparring instead of my usual 3. yikes! So – I went bed and listened to my body and it paid off tonight because I felt good and energized and had 7 rounds in me! (3 shadow boxing with the bag, 3 pads, and 2 circuit work rounds). *Phew!*

So, with just over one week to go and my last ever sparring session before fight night on tomorrow evening, I have been thinking A LOT about next week’s fight. A LOT. Like… really, A LOT! 🙂

I found a video that I made for my students last year following the boxing match. I wanted to speak to my students about what I was doing, why I was doing it and how to get involved in helping to support others or doing something themselves. I thought I would share it with you all too for fun. Some of the extra photos and videos included are my work colleagues who I had come down to the gym to do a session to see how hard the boxing is first hand and so the students would also see their teachers giving it a try as well. It was a fun day (for some by the looks of some of the photos!!)

So – I think the message is an important one. Don’t just think about doing it, go ahead and “Get Involved” and support the cause!
