I trained Muay Thai tonight for the first time in a really, REALLY long time. It sure showed. It was expected, but I was still a little embarrassed. My feet are raw and really hurt from pivoting. My calves are killing from being on the balls of my feet for an hour and a half. Lol. Ughhhh!
If you haven’t seen this yet, give it a watch. It gives some interesting insight as to why Keenan is such a good competitor. Great work Stuart Cooper Films!
As the title suggests, I made it to two BJJ classes this week. Last night I tested the hip/groin out by rolling a little harder. To this point, I’d been going very, very light. I’m happy to say that it held up with less pain. I’m still going to physio and I do still have pain, so I’m still being cautious. However, it’s nice to see that faint light at the end of the tunnel. 🙂
I need to stop being a pussy and go! Worst case scenario, I spend the evenings by myself listening to music or reading. It’s probably going to happen that way only because I dislike most people. Happy training y’all. 🙂
This past Friday I was to lead my first class as a purple belt. I had it all planned out. What we would warm up with, what we would drill, technique I wanted to work on, extra stuff if there was time, and end it with some rolls. During the warm up drills (standing guard passing/not letting the standing pass), I jumped in and within 30 seconds, tore my right hip flexor. Damn that hurt! I managed to finish the lesson by having a senior blue belt demonstrate what I wanted to show. What a let down. Now I’m out for weeks! Argggggggg!!!!!
