Back at the top of the page, bitches!
Mon: 4 mile run
Tue: MT, which was unusual in that it was all boxing. MT fighters are not boxers, according to my kru, although they all love Western boxing. We learned a 6-count combo and worked the slip a lot. Still working on my 15-count and wearing my shins in classes where we throw kicks in hopes that I'll start to learn countering kicks and get used to those painful iliotibial nerve kicks.
Wed: BJJ was the usual warmups and guard pass drills, then for technique we worked on crossknee pass from standing and a counter when your opponent defends the crossknee pass by pushing on your knee, then I rolled 3 live 5-min rounds. I didn't stay for kids class because I'd already been rolling for nearly 2 hours at that point.
Thur: MT frenzy
Fri, Sat, Sun: rested

Mon 2-20: 3 mile run, 6 3-min rounds jump rope
Tue: MT was some clinch work, checking kicks, and a shitload of pad work. I was hurting by the end of class.
Wed: rested
Thur: I HATE having to miss a workout because of a wonky split shift work schedule. I'd also like this 2nd job schedule to become somewhat regular, because at the moment it's stopping me working my other job. MT tonight.
EDIT: MT was about 1 hour 15 min of its customary straight cardio and tabata drills. The only problem I have with this class is that it isn't 4x a week instead of 2.
Fri, Sat, Sun: rested

Mon: BJJ was Margarita pass and a few other guard passes, but as always, I learned the most rolling live. I'm told I'm moving much better on my back, which is good because sometimes if I'm pinned by someone who outweighs me by 100 lb, I get a little scared. Then I went to my other gym and ran 3 miles. My favorite technique that I've learned recently is still can opener, though.
Tue: MT tonight. I was such a lazyass all weekend partly because I was a lazyass and am coming off 4 weeks of 30+ hours working, (a lot for me because I'm the only one who does anything around our house) and because everything was still hurting from the extremely intense MT class last Thur. That doesn't usually happen to me, at least not to that extent, so I figured I'd better rest. EDIT: MT tonight was a round kick clinic. The kru set a goal of 500 kicks, and we exceeded it by about 75, by my count, in 90 minutes, combined with a lot of combinations on the bag and in partner pad work. Two of the students are preparing to fight this Saturday, so I'm looking forward to an intense Thursday workout as well. It'll be interesting to see how I perform, if at all, in my run tomorrow afternoon between work appointments.

Last night was the first night in weeks that I didn't have a drink. Tonight I had one, because as I've already said in a couple of places, it's impossible to watch Justified without some Kentucky bourbon.

Wed: Split shift at work. My schedule is somewhat more regular, but IDK if that's the shape of things to come. I had about 40 min at home till I had to go to the next appointment, with driving kids all around. My husband is in Vegas for work and I've been doing all the chauffeuring.

Thur: MT was ******* exhausting nonstop pad and bag work, and fun as shit, as always.
Fri, Sat: rested
Sun: 3 mile run

Mon 3-12: 3 mile run, 15 min jump rope.
Tue: MT
Wed: BJJ was a lot of live rolling. Two of my partners are kids who I don't think know their own strength, but are still uncoordinated enough that I can catch them in various things that are highly entertaining, and they're always a sport about it.
Thur: MT
Fri: rested
Sat: 3 mile run
Sun: rested

As you can see, the last couple of weeks were slightly insane due to my attempting to work two jobs, with which I had some success, and hopefully made enough money to pay for MT, BJJ, the gi I've been lusting after for over a year, etc. I'd also really like to take the occasional judo class, because as I've said before, I miss it a lot. My gym has expanded to include people who have trained regularly with Renzo Gracie, as well as Carlson and de la Riva, so there's a lot of fascinating information exchange going on.

Mon 3-19: AM BJJ. Watched the MMA types work standup and GnP while we rolled all sportsmanlike on the other half of the stylin Swain mats. I'm working on making the breakdance/shoulder roll transition smoother and faster, because I know I have the foundations for a good guard game with my long legs. My teacher was nice enough to let me get my hooks in, take his back and RNC him. I said, I can see that that was a gift, and don't think it went unappreciated.

Tue: MT tonight. It was a ton of knees. It got hot as shit in there and I thought my partner was going to drop. I loooove skip knee and curve knee. She dropped her pads and I accidentally kneed her in the chest. Sorry about that thar.

Wed: BJJ was guard passes including escrima pass, and a fair amount of rolling. It got really hot so toward the end of class I bitched out and changed into my nogi rig.

Thur: MT. Drinking diet rockstar b/c I think I got a mild version of the stomach bug that seems to have been going around, also because it does work as a bump of sorts. I want to try to work with a challenging partner tonight; after all, I try to be a challenge or at least a superb feeder for whoever I work with.

Fri: rested. I work 6 AM- 2:30 PM most Fridays, so that tends to be my do nothing day.

Sat: 3 mile run, 5 3 min rounds jump rope.

Sun: rested

Mon 3-26: AM BJJ was triangle drills and triangle from spider guard, which I loved, plus a lot of live rolling, where I seem to learn the most. PM 4 mile run. My BJJ gym is in the process of changing its affiliation, thereby changing my lineage as follows: Mitsuyo Maeda > Carlos Gracie Sr. > Carlson Gracie Sr. > Julio "Foca" Fernandez > Kinetix Combat Sports > swpthleg.
Tue: MT
Wed: 3 mile run
Thur: MT. Thursdays are conditioning, and while I wish we'd condition equally on both days, Thursdays are incredibly fun. There are a lot of new people in the class (aka wrestlers learning to strike or women who are new exercisers) and it's an interesting mix.
Fri: rested
Sat: rested
Sun: 3 mile run

Mon. AM BJJ, then 30 min stepmill.
Tue: MT. I got there late because of work and there was so much talking, it was hard for me as a nonvisual learner to shut up and respect the kru during all the talking. It was awesome when I finally got to do pad and bag work for 40 minutes.
Wed: 3 mile run
Thu: MT was much more intense, fortunately.
Fri: rested
Sat: rested
Sun: 3 mile run

For the first time in years, I haven't documented a week because I simply can't remember, but I know I had Mon AM BJJ last week, Tue and Thur MT, didn't do anything Saturday, and ran 3 miles on Sunday. I lost my Wednesday workout due to being a hungover idiot.

Top of the page, bitches!
Mon: 3 mile run, some bag drills, got a good stretch. I often forget to stretch after I work out, which is just as helpful as stretching beforehand.
Tue: Doubled up workouts because I thought MT would be weak on cardio, as it sometimes is on Tuesdays. Fortunately I was wrong. 20 min stepmill at the dojo where I used to train judo and hope to again, then pad work with some HS girls who showed up. Jump rope, heavy bag drills and more pad work at MT, then the owner's sister in law tested for her shorts. I like her a lot but I was so pissed off because I've been outperforming her for 5 months (ie the kru has me school the new people just like the guys who've been with him for years and had several ammy fights). Still mad. He had me corner her, which I've never seen him do in a shorts test, probably in an effort to keep me from getting pissed off by the nepotism, but it didn't work.
Wed: rested
Thur: Doubled up again. Worked my ass off in MT because I'm still pissed.
Fri: rested. So excited for no 6 AM work next week.
Sat: Nogi. I worked the most in pass the guard drills, which are my favorite. I love seeing who is hurt by my pointy elbow drilling into the inside of their leg and who isn't. I got subbed by someone who trained with Renzo and said "Omo****inplata!" and everybody busted out laughing. You know how the nickname your BJJ instructor gives you usually turns out to be the one that sticks? Probably because I so clearly want to be badass, my teacher has started calling me Sophimus Maximus.
Sun: rested
