Odd and ends about training
I trained at Gleason’s yesterday. Due to some time constraints I only had about an hour — but what an hour it was.
First off, thanks to my daily dose of Yoga, my stamina was light-years beyond the week before to the point where Lennox was asking what I’d put in my Wheaties. Not that I’d ever been one to proselytize (?!?) — but I’ve got to say that Yoga practice, even the Yoga 101 that I do really can make a difference in one’s stamina, core strength and flexibility.
The second great thing about yesterday morning was watching the likes of pro-heavyweight fighter Sonya Lamonakis train. Sonya, ranked number three in her weight class sparred several hard rounds with Belinda Laracuente another sensational fighter who also works as a trainer at Gleason’s. As well, I caught sight of Alicia Ashley readying for her upcoming main event bout on January 13th at Brooklyn’s Masonic Hall.
The mention also goes out to all the women I trained with young and old, novice and pro who were working their butts off.
What a great day!
