Although today was the holiday, I knew that I had to get into the gym. Aince I was by myself I trained with the Bas CD to warm up with 7 rounds of shadow boxing with conditioning between rounds. After the Bas CD I finished with 5 X 5 mins of hard bag drills between the heavy bag, Thai Bag, and Ground and Pound. These are the toughest weeks because I am really trying to push the threshold of conditioning and get my body used to the intensity of the workouts.

This morning I worked on my roadwork and interval sprints. I started with a 5 mile run and finished with 10 X 50 meter sprints. I really need to do more running to condition my legs for the fight, because I always believe that if your legs can keep moving you can always keep going in a fight.
Tonight was great, since our new BJJ coach at the gym Rowan Cunningham got into to London and settled into training with us at Team Tompkins and eventually the new gym Adrenaline Training Center. We started out with 3 rounds of shadow boxing followed by 5 rounds of Thai Pad work. I felt a little off on the pads since I have been focusing so much on wrestling and BJJ for this fight, but a few days of solid pad work will fix that right up and get my timing on point. After pad work we finished with a round of conditioning and got into 6 rounds of sparring. Although I was not getting hit much, I felt the same as on the pads where my timing was a little off. Again, a few days of solid pad work will fix that up.
