I can’t fucking stand it here one minute longer… All day I think about going…
I trained Muay Thai tonight for the first time in a really, REALLY long time. It sure showed. It was expected, but I was still a little embarrassed. My feet are raw and really hurt from pivoting. My calves are killing from being on the balls of my feet for an hour and a half. Lol. Ughhhh!
Jan 11-16 I was in Whistler BC. An annual ski trip that I take with a group of… gentlemen. The conditions were fabulous. Tons of snow the first 2 days and then blue bird the last 2. Here’s some pics.
This happened on Thursday.
Yes that’s the first stripe on my purple belt. I only got the gosh darn thing on September 30. Plus I was out for 2 months with the hip flexor injury. I feel like it came too fast. Oh well. Best just go with the flow I guess. I’ve been teaching a bit. I like it. I’m able to do more of what I want to work on. We have several new white belts, so I’m going to have to start planning 2 small lessons. I know it’s always good to work on basics, but the vets need new things to try/learn as well. It’s just another challenge. :) I think there’s an art to teaching. I seem to be good at it. Probably because of my experience teaching skiing and Muay Thai.
If you haven’t seen this yet, give it a watch. It gives some interesting insight as to why Keenan is such a good competitor. Great work Stuart Cooper Films!
