Coming back from my bought with VRSA has been tough but I finally feel like I’m making progress. My cardiovascular and strength levels are regaining stride and have almost reached the point they dipped from before hospitalization. And, it’s just in time for tournament season!
We have some big events coming up for Team Shawn Hammonds/Lloyd Irvin. February 26th we’ll be at the Chicago Open where I’ll be competing in the brown belt, leve division. In preparation, we’ve been pounding out two-a-days; strength and conditioning in the mornings at LAC (www.louisvilleathleticclub.com) and BJJ training in the evenings at Derby City MMA (www.derbycitymma.com). Then…the World’s in June! I’m still holding firm to my goal–bringing home some hardware, becoming a 2011 World Champion!
Have you been staying true to your goals? Are you preparing to hit them? Remember, hard work always beats talent when talent refuses to work hard.
