I love Wednesdays. They are the days I hit the gym and kick ass stuff. Stuff == trainer's pads or the punching bag.

Surprisingly,the punching bag is tougher to hit properly than the human. I thought it would be the other way around, because the target pads my trainer wears are so small. I figured out later that it was because the trainer adjusts to meet my blows, and reacts after I hit him. The punching bag is big, heavy, and just... hangs there.

I've only tried myself against the punching bag once, though, last week. Maybe I'll have another go tonight?

Wednesdays are the highlight of my week(ly workouts). Punching and kicking stuff which I can't hurt makes me less likely to want to break stuff which I can. Plus, it is fun. So much fun! (Roundhouse kicks are the most fun. But jab-straight combos are also up there.)
