Back at the top of the page, bitches!
Mon 4-23: 3 mile run, kata (because sometimes I kind of miss them. Go ahead and judge) and jump rope.
Tue: MT was various kick, knee and hands drills with no annoying plyo which is fine with me. We ended with a lengthy boxing combination.
Wed: AM BJJ I'll go into tomorrow, then after work 30 min stepmill and about 15 min jump rope with 3 90 second breaks. I tried to mix it up with double scotch and double foot and other crap that made me work harder. EDIT: AM BJJ was knee on belly transitions, pulling guard to side control, and gi chokes.
Thur: MT was brutal and super awesome stations. I'm achy in the best way.
Fri: I forget what I did.
Sat: Hugus seminar. A lot of stuff from side control. It was great to train with a woman again.
Sun: rested

Mon: moar jump rope.
Tue: MT had a bunch of actual cardio instead of all the talkin. My kru has trained pros for 20+ years, trained and traveled all over the world and he is the shit, but I'm not a visual learner and I can only watch and listen to talking about technique for so long.
Wed: stepmill, jump rope, PM BJJ.
Thur: MT just like I like it, sweating buckets and every muscle hurting and my kru in my face saying "Relax. Pay attention" because I was getting all hyper and that helped to ground me.
fri: Just lifted. What a f8cking waste of time. My strength and capability is exactly where it was. Clearly I stay strong doing my other workouts without wasting time flexing in a mirror.

Mon 5-21: stepmill and lifted. Lifting still feels like a waste of time.
Tue: MT was a bunch of kick drills, including chop kick and drive kick.
Wed: AM BJJ, then 2 mile run and lifted. I think I'm going to stop lifting. Maybe I'm just too impatient to wait for the benefits.
Thur: MT was intense and incredibly fun with pad and bag drills, jump rope and I got to stay for the advanced class where we did clinch work. I love the plum.

Two week brain cramp

I"ve been in the gym quite a bit the past few weeks, also working and gardening (I like to grow flowarz almost as much as I like hitting people and trying to take their back and choke them out.) I haven't run much, but I've been on the stepmill and jumping rope when I'm not rolling or doing a ton of pad work and as with last night, boxing drills for MT.

Wed 6/6 - about 23 min jump rope total
Tomorrow I'm working in the PM, then MT.
Fri: 3 mile run
Sat: rested
Sun: rested

Mon 6/11 - Didn't work out. My friend lost her 3-month-old daughter to what was most likely SIDS, and I went to the funeral and then worked.
Tue: MT was stations. We did 9 and we're going to work up to 25. I stayed for challenging, painful and rewarding clinch drills.
Wed: AM and PM BJJ. Usual warmups and guard passing drills, lots of live rolling, we looked at executioner's choke and straight armbar.
Thur: MT was slightly more intense and we did 14 stations. My kru is preparing for Ajarn Chai's Oregon camp, and some of the guys are fighting at the end of the month, so we're working hard.
Fri: AM BJJ was nogi which is disgusting if people haven't done their laundry. Not sure if I'm going to work out this PM before work or not.

We've been adding more stations in MT and my kru has gone to Oregon MT camp. I'm still hoping to compete in August. I haven't decided on gi or nogi. I have another girl partner and I have her little fingermarks all over my upper arms, cos she rolls with her bf, and I don't get to train with women nearly as much as I'd like, and we got a little excited and were giggling and trying to sweep each other while the guys all had their war faces on. Three guys have ammy fights in Mansfield, OH tomorrow night, and they were at the gym this AM looking nervous as shite and very hungry.

Mon 7-09: Slept through BJJ (My Sundays tend to be long and somewhat draining) and had to do dumb errands, some of which I didn't even get to because of lame long line at post office, and didn't get the cardio I usually fit in between shifts on Mondays. LAME LAME LAME.
Tue: MT was a good mix of cardio and technique, ending with drilling the 15 count back and forth except with both partners wearing gloves rather than one with thai pads and one with gloves. That was great. My teacher is back from NW Thai camp and I'm sure will put the hurt on us on Thur.
Wed: AM BJJ was a couple of sweeps, one armbar and a ton of live rolling. It was great b/c I had one of my girl partners, who is extremely strong. Her BF is teaching her, but not much, because he prob. likes punking on her, so we were drilling americana, kimura, and kimura sweep, also a mount escape and a back escape.
Thur: Missed first 1/2 hour of MT due to work scheduling me one Tue or Thur each week till 6:15. It was bag and pad work and shadowboxing drills. TBH I have never had an instructor leave class for two weeks and I know a few people got fed up and are giving it a break for awhile. I'm not one of them, though.
Fri: Open mat. Hit the bag a little, rolled a little, didn't work as much as I would have liked. It blows that this gym is too small for and doesn't have any cardio equipment.
Sat: rested
Sun: rested. Just the tiniest bit tired because I had a few drinks and ran around doing laundry until 2:00 AM.

The past few weeks I've been going regularly to MT and BJJ, but I don't feel I'm getting enough cardio (for stress relief and to make me stronger in MT).

Mon. 7/23: I didn't work out b/c we were out of town to take older swplet to look at a college.
Tue: MT "technical Tuesday" where we sometimes work, but we didn't do shit for cardio today.
Wed: BJJ, guard passing, drilled a few sweeps, (pendulum and scissor) but the guys were all having bromances with each other and I didn't get to roll. BOOOO
Thur: MT tonight. Hopefully we'll work more. I haven't been to my other gym much because insurance company still has not sent the flex plan check that they were to have had to me by yesterday. I'm calling them right now.
Fri: BJJ, pretty much the same as Fri.
Sat: 2 mile dog walk
Sun: 2 mile dog walk

Mon 7/30: Gi BJJ and I truly cannot remember what we did.
Tue: MT, fortunately the khru didn't go overboard on "technical tuesday" and we worked, mostly on mat khatoun, which looks like an overhand hook to me.
Wed: BJJ was de la Riva guard and sweeps from same. No check from insurance company yet. F8ckers.
Thur: MT tonight. I've been taking my dog on long walks every evening as well, more for him than for me, but we both love them.
