So I went to morning practice on Thursday all ready work hard and sweat and kill myself, but Abe-san wasn’t there. Hatano-san, who is awesome, ran a really loose easy class, and I didn’t get the cardio I wanted… BUT me and him and Yuma, another fellow who is really good, all shared techniques and I asked a bunch of questions about grappling. It was REALLY helpful and I learned A LOT. We did spar at the end round robin for like half an hour, and I did a few of the moves successfully, so I was really happy! During my last sparring round, I was put in kind of a …I dunno how to describe it. At all. Uh. Like a bicep crusher except on my shoulder, and it hurt so much…I went home nearly unable to move it and then my neck hurt, so maybe we did too many guillotines? Whatever, so I didn’t really eat soo many sweets that afternoon. lol I tried to go back to training in the evening (I saw Megumi for the first time since the earthquake! <3) but stuff hurt too much. I got some cardio in kicking thai mits, and then went home. 🙁 arg. I've done some stairs a few mornings in a row...I hate stairs but they're good for me! 😀
My shoulder should heal in less than a week since it's just a pulled muscle thing, but it's really annoying. -.-;; Especially when I was feeling so motivated!
Friday I practiced English with my friend T-chan who owns the restaurant, and I'm really happy with how he's progressing. 😀 I also used the new evaluation forms at work for the first time on my co-worker. He taught a kick-@$$ lessons, but I hate the forms. -_-;; But I can't really talk about that on here....
So I woke up at 3:30 AM this morning, oh boy! Just finished some online business...and after I repost this dumb survey #4 I did last night, I'm gonna run some stairs and then go into work early!
Name the most terrifying moment of your life so far.
-When I was in a BJJ tournament in2004? and Sayaka Shioda did a drop-ippon seonage on me. As if slow motion, I felt myself going head first into the mat, and I thought I was going to break my neck and die. I managed to twist a little and I fell on my shoulder/arm. My elbow broke instead. I thought, “Oh I’m alive…! 😀 OOWOOOOWWWWWW holyshtpain”
