Was One Year Old Yesterday

I’m a day late with my website birthday celebrations. My mind has been distracted with trying to get over my latest Muay Thai injuries – trust me, sore ribs are no fun. Anyway, it was one year ago yesterday that I launched this website. So much has happened over the last 12 months, and I’ve managed to document a lot of it here.

  1. Count on me – I’ll be here. Hope you recover. I was watching some muay thai fights on youtube – wicked stuff Paul. Great blog, enjoy reading and hearing your podcasts sometimes too. Cheers man…

    1. Thanks Mike. Muay Thai is tough for sure. I can’t imagine how professional fighters manage to keep going year after year. Most of the Thai fighters train all year round and will have hundreds of fights in their career. It is hard to imagine a life where you are always recovering from injuries and preparing to fight again.

  2. I think of life as essentially – just that. We roll with the punches everyday. They don’t hurt physically – but mentally they take their toll just the same, or worse. Everything is painful… attachment to things is pain.

    No, me neither – a life of physical fighting? I fought a lot when I was in the Air Force years ago. Lifted weights to get big and my ego swelled with it. I never physically started the fights… but I guess I provoked them. I was a cocky bastar*.

    Now I’m all mellowed out for the most part… You believe that? lol…

  3. Paul congratulations on reaching the one year landmark for, you’ve put out some great posts during those 12 months and I hope you keep them coming.

    With your Muay Thai training now in full swing I take it you only had a small slice of the birthday cake.
