The last couple of weeks are a blur due to working a lot, but I missed one thai class because I was fed up and in a shitty mood that day.

I also didn't get to train BJJ this week at all due to staying up late, sleeping in like an idiot, and trying to not be so disgusted by the guy who always stinks. (The same guy who rolls some days in a karate gi that I would tear the shit out of if I was strong enough.)

I am more than ready to test for shorts, but I'm not going to bring it up with my instructor. I'm planning on going to a seminar Sep. 8 in Buffalo with another woman from class, and hopefully more will go. I haven't told L&M yet because he'll probably be pissed.

The last couple of weeks I have rolled 2-3x a week and trained MT twice a week. My work schedule has been different every single week. I still walk my dog, but I'm concerned that running, hands down my favorite form of cardio, has fallen by the wayside a bit. I will be doing my best to remedy that. My department manager knows that I plan on substitute teaching in addition to this job, and hopefully my schedule will regulate accordingly, as it did last year.

One of the judoka I used to train with is now taking classes at my BJJ gym to step up her newaza. She is about a year younger than older swplet and a beast. It's great fun to train with her and she is not at all afraid to wreck me, which generally helps me improve.

I have paid and registered for the Sattrachan Surachai Sirisute (Ajarn Chai) seminar in Buffalo this coming Saturday and I'm excited as sh!t.

Sat 9-8: 6 hour seminar with Ajarn Chai, where we drilled primarily footwork, teep, combinations and elbows. The elbows were fun as shit and Ajarn Chai is one of those people wherein when he walks into the room, everybody's in awe because of the living legend aura all around him

Didn't work out Sunday or Monday.

Tuesday MT, fortunately not technical Tuesday and we put in a lot of work because a couple of guys are preparing for amateur fights. More elbows, pad and bag work, no jump rope. I never thought I'd miss jump rope, but I did.

Wed: No workout due to split shift from hell that I devoutly hope will go away soon.

I'm progressing in BJJ, but I found out that Foca Fernandez (Carlson Gracie Sr. black belt and head of my gym's affiliate in Vermont) is coming next month and I'd love to be ready to be evaluated re: another stripe, so I have to start rolling more than twice a week. Now that I can defend against heelhooks and possibly unleash them myself, I'm not as intimidated by rolling with the nogi guys. We rarely use heelhooks in gi classes.

Hallo b!tches. After a craptacular week for BJJ (Monday morning class canceled b/c the instructor for that class is a SWAT guy and some asshole shut himself in a house with a shotgun, working Wednesday morning, Fri AM open mat canceled due to upcoming ammy fights) and a decent one for MT, and a sinus with pounding headaches type of things, I'm back at it.

Mon: AM BJJ was north/south escape and a pass similar to a butterfly guard pass I'd drilled where you rocket your legs straight up into the air and land the outside leg first. At no time has this pass been effective for me re: butterfly guard; maybe it'll work for other open guard. We also worked a mount escape and what I think was can opener (so much fun with the gi collar) and then sparred and both girls wrecked me. I think I'm still dragging from the congestion affecting my sleep. I found out that the Foca seminar is the same day as a college open house older swplet wants to go to. I'm going to try the "IDK if the puppy should be alone with the big dog for that long" excuse and try to get out of it so I can go to the seminar, as sometimes people get stripe or belt at same.

Tue: Thai was nearly all partner pad work, my very favorite thing. You called out the combination for your partner, and mine was skilled so I put together 4, 6 or 8 count combinations for him, and broke down the 15-count (one of the series of strikes we have to have memorized). Then we did a few speed kick and skip knee drills and I only had 9 knees less in the allotted time than the pro guy.

Wed: Worked 6 hours early as I customarily do on Wednesdays, and then I have no energy for anything else apart from housework and looking after the dogs the rest of the day. I can't wait till the new people my dept. hired get through the month-long training my work requires so I can get rid of this shift.

BJJ and thai are progressing, thai more quickly than BJJ as I don't have anywhere near sufficient technique to consistently evade/reverse people who are much bigger and stronger than me.

I went to a gi seminar conducted by Julio "Foca" Fernandez, a 6th degree black belt under Carlson Gracie Sr., which was a great learning opportunity and he even had a little bit of Portuglish sound in his fluent English, which was awesome.

I had a crap workout last night which was my own fault. My partner was not a good feeder but I should have been able to work around that.

BJJ this AM was great. I get a much better workout when there's a girl there.

The swplet's puppy got stepped on a week ago and he's almost ready to take long walks with me and his Malamute big brother again, which is good because I'm going to start turning them into interval runs to get my running mojo back up again.

I've been progressing steadily in MT and BJJ, though extremely slowly in BJJ. I've returned to outside running, though I only do it 2-3x a week due to crap weather and not being sure how the pin and plate in my left ankle will like it. My running buddy, also one of my coworkers, is a marathoner and a wonderful motivator.

We are doing more clinch work and live timing drills, which are light live standup. I have the most schooling in combat sports out of all the women who attend, so I often find myself paired with a small guy. This is fine because they're my size, but heavier and stronger, so I have to use my speed and/or try to take their legs out with cut kicks. We aren't doing a lot of sweeps yet in live standup, though we've drilled them, and I hope to see them incorporated more, because that was my very favorite thing when I played judo.

I'm having a great time but I would like to test for shorts eventually.

Only trained BJJ once this week due to terrible weather and being kind of sick. MT was great both days. I just wish I was in good enough shape and had a girl partner so I could do fight camp. I guess it's pretty hardcore, but I think that with a few weeks' preparation on top of my regular activity, I could do it.

My running partner has been working out indoors, but we're going to start running again since her marathon got bumped up to May from July.

Because I need all the flexibility I can get to balance running, biking, MT and BJJ, I've been stretching every day.
