That’s another week in the bank.
My second week of training in Thailand is finished, one step closer to getting that belt.
I’ve had a really hard and great week of training, I’m not going to detail every session but like last week I have put in the time and effort. It has consited of 2-3 training sessions a day in all areas of the game.
This week I have had Jeff Sainlar filming some of my training. Jeff is in charge of all the media at Tiger and has produced some really cool videos in the past so I am looking forward to seeing the finished product. He is really busy at the moment so it may take a couple of weeks but once its done you will be able to see abit more about my training in Thailand.
Everything is going to plan and my last week of training has just made me even more confident in my abillities, I am performing well in all areas, my fitness is good, my weight is low and my mind is in the right place.
While training for my last fight I was still having a few problems with an injury I had recently recovered from. Basically as soon as the injury had gotten to a place where I could train around it, I had a fight booked and I was straight back into hard training. It all worked out well, I managed to train around it and had a good performance and got the win. Originally I was hoping to get the tittle fight a bit earlier this year but having this little extra time has been perfect for me. I havent had any pain or felt any weakness from the old injury for many weeks now. I felt that the injury had also caused some muscle wastage that I have been able to build back up throughout my strength phase.
The times that I haven’t been training I have just been trying to relax and recover as much as possible. After a session I jump in the shower, eat healthy and then rest. I like to always have a little nap in the daytime just for 45 mins, some people say it makes them feel more tired but I like to do it.
Sunday is my rest day, I try to chill out as much as possible. Since my diet has been going so well and my weight is on track Sunday is the day I get to treat myself to a bit of different food. This is known as my “cheat meal” and its the best time of the week! Tonight was pizza 😉 enough to hold me over until next Sunday.
I am missing my baby Vinnie and Beccy but its only a couple more weeks. I will have that belt then no doubt i’ll become the king of the night time feeds. Ill be up in the middle of the night, every night feeding the little man but I can’t wait!
The rainy season is coming to an end in Thailand but it still comes hard every so often, I had only been back for about 2 days before I got caught out on my moped in a big storm. I had my rain jacket with me and wasn’t too far from the house I stay at so didn’t think much of it until I got back to the house to find that my phone was dripping wet! I tried to dry it out but I think the screen is bust so that meant buying a new phone. The rain also messed up my plans for Saturday evening, we planned on going to the cinema for a chilled night until the rain kicked in again really hard. We decided to skip the cinema, our only mode of transport is mopeds and the last thing we wanted to do was get soaking wet then sit in an air conditioned cinema for 2 hours.
Other than the rain spoiling a couple of things everything else is perfect, keep getting in touch with my Dad for tickets, I have had a lot of interest so its looking like it will be a really busy night. My opponent Ed also brings a big crowd but I’m confident that the noise from you lot will drown them out! Im bringing the loudest crowd and leaving with the belt!
Early night for me ready for it to start all over again on Monday morning. Keep looking out for updates.
