PostSubject: getting back on the mat...   Tue Oct 25, 2011 8:28 pm

Last night I finally managed to return to training...and it felt great. Like most practitioners I have a job, personal life, ups and downs. Sometimes my training suffers. Recently I have been going through one of those periods. I just haven't had much free time. And when I did have free time my ego was preventing me from getting back on the mat. Sad I didn't want to return until I was in 'better' condition. Well, after an extended period without any change in my 'condition' i realized it might end up being a long wait. So, I think what I need to do now is not worry so much about my 'condition'. That will come back with time. I should just focus on enjoying my training and learning.

It felt good to roll last night. I really want to get back to at least 2 rolls a week. Here's hoping...

Anyone else having ups and downs? How are you getting through them?

Nice to have you back I don't know how you survived taking that much time off I know if I miss a week I start going through withdrawals. The downs I am facing right now is the fact that I have an injured knee but I am fighting through it 'foolishly' and hopingi don't make it worse. Maybe girljitsu can relate as she is now 4 1/2 months into her 9 month pregnancy break and I really missing training.

Life definitely gets in the way sometimes...I still do attend some classes at our club, just as an observer. I'd love to be able to demonstrate some things for the class but I'd hate it if anything happened to my "little ninja". Oh well. As soon as she's born, it'll be BJJBenoit's turn to sit out for a little while...Wink

Don't get me wrong, I know I am still welcome to come and help out with classes. But I am also a full-time student and I work part-time, besides being knocked up. I didn't go to the club for a good month because my schedule was so hectic. It was good to be able to take a weekend off at the beginning of the month so that I could go and watch my teammates kick some ass in Ottawa.

Here's hoping that soon, we can get back to training the way we want...

Sounds like you guys have a lot on your plate too. Gambate (roughly translated as 'you can do it' in Japanese) Take care of that knee BB. The 60 year old 3rd degree black belt you will appreciate it. And take care of both yourself and the lil ninja JG. Smile

For me the biggest issue is work. My work hours went from 8-9 hours a day to 13 to 14. I don't really have any control over that. But some of it I am doing to myself. For example, I have started taking a few uni courses part time and I am trying to study for the GRE. So of course I have less free time (and I am always exhausted) and my training is suffering.

I am going to try to cut some corners and make more time for bjj.

I just found out that our club will soon offer yoga and fitness classes! I'm so pumped! Now there's a way for me to go and get fit without putting the mini ninja-girl at risk. Smile
