Not today, failure! :)

I was way too busy Friday to work out due to the Valentine's day activities (dinner and a movie) and I almost did not do anything tonight. It was a calculated thought and effort to still do it. Stretched the necessaries, rode the stationary bike 25 minutes and did the requisite marching-like activity Timpani suggests (knees and round kicks for me to keep the MA flavor) for cool down.

As a follow up to my first post, talking to my wife made me realize it might be good to give examples of what I am doing.

This is a pretty good example of the shadowboxing that I will have to do.

This is a very good example of the "ground and pound" that I referenced. (This guy does it on a heavy bag. I use a kicking shield.)

And this is what I want to be able to do via the training. (Ignore the French rap.)

I think that I was being metaphorical addressing failure as if it were a person vying against me.
