Unfortunately, he was matched with one of our professional fighters (in a beginners division), same guy on both gi and no gi days. So he basically got smothered by a very mean looking, mesomorphic specimen of a man. Bummer. I looked at the division I would have been in, it was the same guy from my gym that I had to roll two days in a row, and one of our fighters Darwin. I'm not paying 90$ to roll the same ******* guys I roll 2-3 times a week in the gym. Poor turnout I guess.
Went in for more burpees

7 Up from last weeks, now we're getting somewhere. I lost my girlfriend this weekend so we should be seeing a more dedicated and spiteful me for the next little while. Also get my car back this week. Then Vegas in less than two weeks. BJJ tonight.
Sorry about all the stuff that happened. You'll come back stronger, as you always seem to.
Could you post your shopping list or something? I'm also wondering what, if any, external analgesics you use for muscle pain/recovery.
