Been a while!
I've been mostly conditioning and training muay thai rather than parkour for the past wee while, so that I am in tip top shape for the good weather which is hopefully just around the corner! This way I can enjoy parkour without having to be annoyed at myself for not being strong/fit enough to do the things I want to do, which was what happened last summer .
I have decided I would like to fight muay thai at least once to prove to myself that I can do it. If I can do this then the whole reason for taking up muay thai in the first place has been satisfied. Not that I will quit though. Taking up muay thai has changed me and I like the changes. As well as overall challenges and goals I have, within muay thai I have even more. My next grading (Yellow) and full contact sparring are two of the goals I have to achieve with the long term goal of winning my first fight. The people I train with are brilliant too, they make hard work fun and no matter your level, everyone knows when you are needing motivation or when to say "well done" when you have pushed yourself to the limit.
As far as parkour goes, I want to travel to Glasgow more. The people there are amazing and some of the locations they train in are perfect! Hopefully I will go down again soon and meet up with everyone again.
I am still finding things in my area as my training progresses. I am planning on getting some clips this weekend of things I have been playing on. Not a video mind you, just some clips of the parkour specific training I have been doing recently.
That's all for now. Hopefully I'll update again after the weekend with those clips. I may be enjoying the sun to much to stop moving though ;)
