Yeah, that's me, I'm sore. I love rolling with big enormous people, it guarantees that anything I can make happen is a technique move, not a strength move. However, trying to keep my hooks in on a 6'2" 220lb man is tough; ditto the RNC; ditto closing my guard... ditto everything. And forget sweeps from the mount-- even my neck strap muscles are sore.
Sorry I didn't finish editing the last post on San Fran-- life just accelerated beyond all predictions the last few days and only now do I have a minute to take a breath.
For one thing, Mitch and I had a "talk" about how I'd been spending an awful lot of time on BJJ and martial arts, and how he was missing me. *Smile* Isn't he sweet! Of course he's right, and it was compounded by two weekends in a row out of town. If I could figure out how to get the pictures I took with my cell phone *out* of Sprint PictureMail and *into* my blog, you'd see how adorable my best friend Heather is with her daughter, the exceptional 3 yr old Hannah. And you'd see a little bit of San Fran, though I wasn't smart enough to take pictures of my training mentor Michael or any of my instructors or rolling mates. So anyway, I have been making sure Mitch knows he does come first in my life, even ahead of BJJ, which you know means a lot.
For another thing, I've been swamped suddenly at work. I had some big deadlines before, don't get me wrong-- but they were manageable and doable even with the constraints imposed by my ramping-up addiction to training. But now I have even more! Fortunately some of my deadlines have been foisted on other people, but I'm still swimming upstream as hard as I can paddle. (I do think the judge will have to grant a continuance, as defense counsel wants one too.) More on that in another post or two I'm sure.
Right now I'm forced to attend to work more assiduously than usual, so it's cutting into training time. I head to Dallas this weekend for a friend's wedding on Friday night, but I may get in a class or a private or both while up there. There's a Carlos Machado school in the metroplex, but I don't think he teaches group classes... and of course there's the 10th Planet school in Waxahachie. We'll see.
