Easter Sunday BJJ

Yep the patellar tendon is still sore… limping like a pimp villain. However it is much better then yesterday… tensor bandage for sure and heck even got some lifting in… felt great once I was warmed up! I know the the lifting ain’t much, but I don’t give a freck. There will be gains, slowly and surely. Haven’t worked on any weights consistently since we found out the wife was pregnant…  May 28th 2014?? the last official logged date was Dec 16th 2014 lol…. wow. Crazy, sleep deprived for sure lol… since May. Unfortunately the wife had preeclampsia and hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) which is extreme involuntary vomiting. It occurred variably throughout the nights…  and yes every night sometimes 4 or 5. All I did was wash sheets lol. let just say the only consistent thing was BJJ, and goin on 4 hours sleep on average a night. Something had to give… the lifting unfortunately. Irony was before all that I hadn’t lifted like since 2008… mainly due to the shoulder problem predominate… when I first decided to start BJJ… lol

Essentially only 3 guys OTM this morning… Rupert Klein, myself, & Scott Hall. Glad they showed up lol. Boom! Easter Sunday and still we got some training in…

Clean up:

As you can see we did manage to sweep and disinfect the mat before we left… I feel like only the BJJ nerds clean the mats… dafuck lol.


Our GI’s don’t mop them enough I guess?
