The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

Is using that title copywrite infringement? The last few days has been just that.

I’ve been really happy with my BJJ lately. Currently I feel as though I am improving with every class. I am starting to see a couple moves ahead, and my set ups are working a little better. On the bottom I feel like I am moving well and able to get out of or reverse bad positions. Classes have been larger so there have been plenty of people to roll with.

I have been jonesin’ for a good ski day like you wouldn’t believe. I had it all planned out to go yesterday. Sunday night it was snowing like a son of a bitch, so I packed up my fat skis. When I got on the road at 7am, I realized that the drive was not going to be easy. As it turns out, the plows had yet to clear the roads. They were BAD! It took me 1 hour to drive 30km. At that point I realized, I wasn’t going to make it. So I turned around and went home. 2 hours for a 60km drive and no ski ski. 😦

In the last week or so, my back has been feeling a little jinkity-janked. I should not have ignored it and gone to the chiropractor to get realigned. Today, while doing warm up sets of deadlifts, it went. I had to call in sick to work and spent the rest of the day on the couch with an ice pack. It hurts to breath let one walk. The chiropractor tells me that the muscles are so tense, he needs to give it a day or two before his work will really make a difference. I was supposed to have a BJJ seminar and tournament this weekend… Doesn’t look good.

  1. Do you do any stretching or mobility work for your lower back? You might already, but I was just curious. I had a hamstring issue which was causing me a lot of lower back issues and after it was fixed I’ve felt much better.

    1. I stretch like a muthakuka! Lol. As I age, I’ve realized that I need to stretch a lot more. It’s my own fault. I’ve had to see a chiropractor for about 10 years on a fairly regular basis. I just kept putting it off.
