#reverb12 Day 6 – Salud (Health)

What did you do for your body’s benefit this year?

This year I returned to boxing. Classes are always hard work but I really struggled through the first few weeks.  I could barely push out a set of 10 push-ups on my knees or do one burpee properly kicking both legs out behind me at the same time.  Where skipping used to be my strength, I could just make it through a three minute round at a very ordinary pace.  Just. 

This is what happens when you stop training your body.... since July 2009.  I eased back in, two sessions per week and started Vinyasa Power Flow yoga twice a week.  When my yoga teacher went overseas, I picked up an extra two boxing sessions per week. And now I’ve started sparring as well.

I’m not quite back to my pre-travel fitness but I feel fit and strong.  I eat a balanced diet and I don't deprive myself of sweets or wine.  I feel good.

Oh and I still love walking.
