The 5am Club

Well, maybe not exactly The 5am Club because I wake up once a week at this time. On Fridays, my alarm blasts my eardrums to life. I wake up and walk through 0°C or 32°F to catch a bus to the gym. Today was no different.

I’m not sure how long I’ll keep doing this, but at this moment, I need to keep going. I want to. I’m preparing for an amateur boxing tourney in my city and I’d rather win my bouts.

Besides waking up at this hour, I like boxing for several reasons. It keeps me active and keeps my mind and body away from computers. It’s a good means to keep my weight in check. It improves strength.

Whatever the outcome of my amateur boxing bouts, if I have them, I would have made gains in some ways.
