Today is my 39th birthday. While I was walking the wee dog this morning, I decided that I was going to start blogging here again -- it will be more of a training blog -- this is what I'm doing to get better, etc, and less of a reflective blog than it was before -- I still am a bit raw from the 'plosion after Crown regarding the more introspective stuff.
Anyway, Crown is now a week and a half away -- honestly, a week ago, I would have said I just was not feeling it -- I have been sick and unable to train and practice the way I want and my confidence was just not there -- but after fighting over the weekend, I'm feeling better about entering Crown and the goal will be to fight my best fight and to leave everything on the field -- the focus will not be on winning, but on fighting to my best ability -- wherever that gets me will help me decide what/how I need to train over the winter for May, and honestly, that is all I'm looking for next weekend. Well that, and I want to fight well and honorably so I represent my consort well, but that is sort of a given.
I have decided to break up my training into six week increments. That training starts today and I am going to put a little time aside tonight to write down the regimen for the next week and my mini-goals that will go along with that. The goals will be associated with developments I want to make in health, skill level, fitness, psychological headspace, as well as making my kit look better. I'm pretty excited to really get my shit together.
