I’m fairly happy with the progress I’ve made in Muay Thai training. My power kick feels good and has improved a lot. I’ve also lost some weight along the way.
My reflexes have improved I feel and I’m able to do some basic reading of where and what type of attack is likely to occur based on the opponents stance and body language. I feel that I’ve improved dramatically over the past month and a half since I’ve been back in Thailand. More progress than the initial four months.
I think this is at least partially due to the fact that I filmed and studied myself a couple of weeks back to analyze how I could improve. I think I’m a bit looser now and more relaxed.
The joint on my right elbow is starting to feel pain now. I have other more minor aches and pains as well. I’m 23 and I’m feeling this with just three training sessions a week. I don’t think my body can take the pounding at an even higher number of training sesions for years on end. Plus one of my favorite pad holders quit recently because he thought it was booring after 12 years. After five months of training I’m starting to see why he thinks that way.
