* I am feeling great today so I decided to focus that energy towards a fun A.R. routine. I will start implementing these on my active recovery days depending on how I feel. I really miss being in my MMA class, so I figured there's a lot I can do on my own and still reap some of the same benefits, like improved conditioning, working technique, letting out aggression, burning some calories, etc.

* Afterwards, I felt alive. So, yes, this will be a part of my weekly routine. I'm still feeling the surge so I'm gonna take Jack to the dog park and let him let off some steam. Peace.
