I am so happy to be back. I returned to my first official class this week. I went to two classes on Tuesday, back to back. Fundamentals and then the advanced class. It lasted from around 6:30 to almost 9 pm. I have never been so tired in my life! I have been out of training since December 27th and I had not managed to do any cardio or anything else I had “planned” so I was pretty sure I was going to puke my guts out. Well it wasn’t all bad but I did manage to get a bit dizzy in the middle somewhere.
It was nice to get back in there and drill some things I had allowed to get sloppy, like technical lift, and a basic scissor sweep. And then in the advanced class it was nice to get back to rolling with guys.
I was amazed that I didn’t lose too much in the rolling department, I was still able to roll at my expected level I would say, but I was gassed so I had no strength to rely on and just used technique to save me. I managed to be offensive the whole time until my last roll where I turtled, got mounted, then he had N/S then side control. He had every dominant position possible except my back, which is the only thing I even had strength enough to fight for.
It was great being back, tapping guys, being dominated positionally. It all was a welcome feeling. But one bad thing, my thumb had a little hair on it with a bump under it, I was looking at it, and pulled the hair out….now my thumb is two sizes bigger and super painful. I pray it is not Staph again! I mean WTF!? on my thumb? Can I go once without getting Staph please?
I’m gonna hold off a little and see what happens, but it has ruined my weekend as I planned to be in class rolling right now (Saturday). Maybe with some luck I can train Monday. *Crosses Fingers*
It really sucks to be back on track finally and then have this happen immediately, However, that is my luck.
