A. B. C.

on November 4, 2011

Went to see Dr. Tom last night. Told them that my left shoulder was acting up again, so we put the ultrasound on that shoulder and then Tom concentrated on that area. At one point, he warned, “This is going to hurt.” And then he pressed on a spot in my shoulder and my whole body lit up. That hurt! But it felt better once he’d loosened it some.

Then I meant to go home and either clean the house or work on my NaNo — figuring that either would be a good procrastination of the other — but instead I watched Holmes on Homes and then football while surfing Amazon for free Kindle books. *le sigh*

November Homework

Pre-class food & drink:

  • 6 oz water
  • coffee + 1 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce

During class notes:

  • Quads had no energy, and no other leg muscles would fire well. After warmup, though, class was all drilling. Did forget about the apple sauce and eat it right before running out the door. Was worried about having anything on my stomach, but did not have a problem with queasiness, as I expected.

Morning Class, BJJ

Me, Ray, and Andrew this morning. Started with a little warmup, which my legs did not appreciate and were reluctant to participate in. Then in to drilling for the rest of class.

Our team has a motto: A. B. C.: Always Be Choking. And that was the theme of today’s drilling. Loop chokes from everywhere. I’m a little fuzzy on them right now, probably because there were so many little variations, or, more correctly, “this same choke is everywhere.”


As of this morning: 5,450 / 50,000
Slightly ahead of pace. Good.
