The idea of going to a public Muay Thai gym was daunting. Who even knew Glasgow held such places?! With the uni sessions ending a month ago, my fingers were TWITCHING to be back in those gloves. So tonight, along with my partner, we bit the bullet and headed to a class.
Even though the warm-up and training was very similar to what I’ve done at uni, I thought I was going to be sick as I bounced back up from what must have been my 100th burpee in 10 minutes. A key example of why not to stop doing something that is 50% of your weekly exercise for four weeks.
The class started at 8 and was set to last an hour, but ended up going on until about half 9. Great. There was a HIIT-style warm-up, pad work and some clinching. It was more of a struggle than usual, but I kept at it and by the end I felt brilliant and I’ll definitely be back later this week and over the summer for other sessions.
