Tacoma Practice May 7

The goal was to bring my own energy, not let other people's attitudes affect me and to really concentrate on volta-ing my shots.  I did a pretty good job and really felt like I was able to dictate the fight.  Mentally and emotionally a much better practice for me than sunday.  Still need to work the volta, but that is getting better as well.  All in all, my fighting is not in a bad place right now.  I think we are going to fight this weekend and my focus again will be on bringing my own energy and intensity to the fight. 

Crown is next weekend.  I have made the decision to fight and my focus will be bringing my best fight, bringing my own intensity and energy and just fighting one fight at a time and not worrying about results, but focusing on execution.

Still here.

Had a super fun fight practice last week at Stromgard.  then went to Wyewood on sunday and not so much.  Dave and I did drills in the backyard last night, me working on making sure I incorporate the volta on my blows.  the plan is to go to BAO tonight -- goal will be to volta my shots and have my own energy and not let anyone's attitude make my practice unfun.

Been feeling like I am allowed to be a good fighter, but when I start winning fights it makes people uncomfortable.  That is not my problem and I need to let that go. 

Crown is in a week and a half and I have been debating whether to fight or not.  I likely am not going to publicly "game" crown for the first time in years.  In many ways I am at a point where I need to put my energy into me and making this fun and beneficial for me instead of always putting the group ahead of me.  That sounds awful when I put it in writing.

Something changed yesterday which makes me more interested in fighting Crown, but we'll see if that comes to fruition or not.
