I skipped out on the run this morning, it was pouring outside and I got caught up with some work as I was up since 5:00 AM working. I made up for it with another 500 skips, I feel that this is actually better exercise than the running but I like the fresh air and getting out a bit.
Todays session was great again, we did the normal routine, sparred a bit again and I also worked in a bit of my bodyweight fitness routine. It was a good idea to split it up as I am already pushing the limits regarding the training.
Each session where I combine the bodyweight with the regular training, I end up being really dizzy at the end, which just tells me that I have depleted all my bodies resources and should stop… I finished up with some solid handstand work. I can see an immense improvement, I actually can’t believe that four months ago, I would not have been able to keep a handstand for more than a second.
It just shows you that it comes down to practice, commitment and dedication. Nothing that is worth anything comes easy but people always want an easy way, a quick fix or a simple solution but the truth is that with most things in life there is none.
The guy I wrote about yesterday who ostracized himself from the group had definitely picked up on the vibes as he did the stretches and exercises with us this morning, I was glad for him, it is not fun to feel like the odd one out when you spend a month with the same group of people.
Rainy season has started, we are getting heavy rainfalls every single day. It is great as it cleanses and cools down the temperature. I actually woke up just past midnight to put on a sweater as I was freezing and I only have a fan, no air conditioner, I never thought this would happen in Thailand.
