I think I need a Punching Bag.

Lately, L has been trying to convince me to come along with her to one of her boxing classes.  Although, we both run daily, and practice Bikram yoga, I have been longing for some sort of strength training. Strength training is very important especially for runners. It help enhance correct running form. It helps make one faster. But most importantly it helps prevent injury. A stronger, faster, injury free runner is always my ultimate goal.

Guess who also does Boxing?








The Victoria’s Secret, Adriana Lima, keeps her amazing body toned by Boxing. I don’t know about you but knowing this is very inspiring to me. It also is pretty bad ass. So on Friday I am planning on going to my first boxing class.

Questions for You

  1. Have you tried boxing?

    Love boxing! So stress relieving!! And you are so right about strength training! 🙂 I try to get it in at least twice a week to compliment my running and also do some yoga stretching after every run.

    Never tried boxing, but it seems like a great stress reliever. I love anything that is faster paced. I need a circuit or something to keep me motivated to finish. Boxing might be something to try,

    Good post!
