Thank you all so much for the replys about my leg. I decided after reading them and doing some more research and talking to Mike that I probably ought to try and avoid any exercise which impacts my legs like running and skipping at boxing. I'm hoping if I'm a bit more careful with trying to heal it this time I'l be back in full action soon! So I know I posted my workout schedule this week and it looks like I've succeeded in almost entirely ignoring it!! But Aside from the running I feel I have acheived the things I set out to do just in a roundabout way!

This was a pretty good workout, got some good situational practice in like moving away from shots - I have a tendancy to just stand there and block them so I can get straight back in but that's not aways the most successful way if my blocks don't work then I take the shot fully whereas if I were moving and took a shot it would do much less damage! We also practiced Mike pressuring me on the ropes (windowsill heh no ring at home!!) and me getting away from them.

I can't believe we went boxing! This morning I woke up feeing really tired and worn out and I almost didn't train at all but I'm glad I did now! Has anyone got any plans for valentines day? Mike and I are having a DVD night and I think he's cooking :-)
