Good luck G, Piob sounds like fun, and Stitches sounds like your kids were raised right (thank God for their mother!)
So I started boxing in the Summer either May or June, can't remember. Took two months off for work while I was on assignment. Anyway, had my first sparring session yesterday and HOLY SHIT was it fun. Couldn't hit my partner, he's a really good boxer, much shorter than me so he was able to bob and weave like crazy. But dude, it was so much fucking fun. However, my arm was like, dead yesterday. Couldn't throw left punches, felt like my arm was a stone and just...dead. So I'm going to take the rest of the week off, focus on my roadwork and see if that helps.
Now I've been starving all day and since dinner.
