OK first of all I am very sorry for my massive absence; it’s been a long time since I updated this.
So what’s happening with me? Well I am finally free from injury after three years, I’ve returned ‘home’ to Gracie Barra Birmingham and I’m close to the summer holidays so I’m really kicking up the training.
First of all my return to Gracie Barra Birmingham – I met Braulio Estima many years ago when he first came to the UK. My training with him was brilliant but being a bit ‘naughty’ back when I was on the door I never committed to training. I trained a few years with him and then became unwell. Jump to June 2011 and I walked in to the new academy and instantly thought ‘why the hell didn’t I get on with this?’
Now it’s been a few weeks and it’s amazing; I feel great and things are starting to click in my mind.
What else ….. oh I started running again with the help of an NHS podcast. It’s based on interval training and is pretty good at getting you going. Only problem was I finished the podcast, turned around and found myself in the middle of the woods. It wasn’t a bad thing; I ran all the way back to my car lol.
