Great gym morning!
There’s nothing like a great morning at the gym to start off the day. This morning did not disappoint either — between working out with Lennox focusing on pushing off the body to throw a right dig, straight right, left hook combination and watching everyone work through the heat and humidity of the gym to shake of the summer doldrums, the focus and energy seemed to shake everyone awake.
It’s as if everyone felt inspired by the work of everyone else too. Punches seemed a little bit crisper, body work a bit more dug in, and the sparring seemed more like dance than boxing. Even the mirror work felt fun with lots of talking and instruction through the rounds and a genuine feeling of camaraderie to add an extra something to everyone’s work out.
I started off with a slow and steady one mile run and then did my usual sweet 16, though I admit to flagging hard in my third round with Len. Still, I pulled it out and after allowing myself a round off, started to work the double-ended bag with renewed vigor especially went it came to doubling up the left hooks.
All I can say is count me lucky to have had such a great way to ease into the last weekend of summer.
