Back at Rocha BJJ
Well, I'm back in Oakland for the summer, and while I miss doing judo and kickboxing in Frenso, I love coming home to Rocha Academy in Oakland.
I helped (as I usually do) with the kids class. Since there's usually one bigger kid (at the moment, it's Jake) who has no one to roll with, I roll with him.
Unfortunately, I didn't feel good at all during training tonight. I popped my shoulder out (which is becoming a recurring injury) early with Jake, so I did the warm up conditioning with Vernie and some basic technical stuff and sat out the rolling. The problem, of course, is that either my food didn't sit well (which I think makes sense, since I wasn't feeling great heading in) or I'm a bit out of shape after two weeks off. Realistically, it's probably a combination of the two.
Anyway, I threw up (not that abnormal in workouts, but not fun at all) after conditioning, and one of my goals is to get back to a comfortable competition weight over the summer. Right now I'm a little over 160, and I'd like to be down around 145 by the end of the summer.
I guess that goal will give me motivation to get this log rolling again.
