Last night I decided to try something different. I love running but sometimes I just need a good hard fast workout. There is a boxing gym down the street from me; Cappy's Gym (http://www.cappysgym.com/), and I decided to check it out. I had a blast! It was an hour workout with plymetrics and boxing with the punching bag. When I felt I was getting tired, I thought of some of the people who I have to report to in Miami for my job who really irritate me and I noticed that I punched harder, thus getting a better workout. If only they knew I was thinking of them as I smashed the heavy bag with all my might. I thought I would be really sore today but actually, I don't feel all that bad. My back is a bit tight and some muscle in my arm, who knows which one, is noticeable today. I can hardly wait to go back. I have a feeling that DOMS might set in tomorrow but we'll see. I actually like feeling a bit sore, makes me realise that I did something and if I recover right, I will get stronger. I learned what a "jab" is used for and layed a few "hooks" on the bag. Maybe this will be my new sport.....who knows! I can only imagine how much training a boxer has to do preparing for a fight. Not only that, there's a lot of technique involved that I have not even figured out. I kept forgetting to keep a glove up to protect my face from my (invisible) opponent. Then there was this little bag that when I hit it, it would fly back at me so I had to dodge that bullet. That was a lesson in agility and quick twitch muscles that I already knew I didn't have. At the end of the class, I had worked up quite a sweat. I'm excited to go back!
