Conditioning Day 9… 9 of 22 A mile and 12 rounds alone

Knees in the morning!

1 hours and 30 minutes Conditioning day 9. I ran 1 mile this morning, and then worked 12 x 3 minute rounds. I intended this blog to write about the good and the bad on my fitness journey. I am doing so, even though I worry it will bother some. I hope it will help others who feel the same.

Reflection on Yesterday’s Feelings

Now that I have slept, gotten up, done a workout, and eaten breakfast. I can contemplate yesterday, and how I was feeling. When I am having a lack luster day, not wanting to do my workout. Tired and annoyed. I get into my head. I worry that I am just a joke to almost everyone. That when I am practicing, I see all my faults, and how ridiculous I look. I think everyone else can see that. I start thinking. Why did I decide to go to this camp. I am going to fail and look stupid.

I have been regularly waffling from so much excitement and anticipation, to oh my God what have I done. I am crazy for trying to get ready in such a short time.

Days like yesterday, a third feeling is added to the mix. I am just a joke and ridiculous. What am I even doing here? I don’t look like everyone else. I make so many mistakes. Am I even improving?

I know I am getting into my own head, and worrying about things. I know some of these feelings are fleeting, but it is hard to get out of your own head and keep pushing on. I have done, and will do just that.

Anyway… onward to better things, and my training that I did today.

Today was a great day. Its always more fun to train with others. But today as I was training in solitude I was able to reflect on my last day. I was able to think about my day and week to come.

I filmed two of my bag rounds to see how I was doing and to review in the future.
