In my absence from the board, I have been refining my own home-based training routine. Two of the things that feature in my training are 15 minutes of "improvisation" time on the wooden dummy on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and 15 minutes on the heavy bag on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Then I also do my forms and another 15 minutes or more of Shadow Boxing. My point is this: on the days that I am supposed to do the wooden dummy improvisation, I find myself approaching it as if it were something I HAVE to do...not something I WANT to do. I feel like it is more exciting and fun to do the heavy bag routine. Then again, there are those days where I will do my wooden dummy improv, but WITHOUT the wooden dummy. On those days, I love it just as much as I ever did. It is so strange, and I'm not sure what I am going to do about it at this point. I'd hate to cut it out, but my philosophy has always been: once it bores you or feels like a chore, then it's time to go! Anyone else have a similar struggle with their training?
