Did I mention that I was going to take this week off to rest up? I’m taking this week off to rest up.
Not that I need it so much from the tournament itself (I think this might be the first tournament where I didn’t come away with a new injury or an aggravated old injury), and I only grappled for a total of ~16 minutes over 5 fights. But I was near mental and physical exhaustion well before the tournament, and only the thought of getting to rest afterwards could keep me going some days. So I’m taking it. (Then next week is Thanksgiving, so there will be fewer classes as well [& smaller, with all the students on break].)
Went to see Dr. Tom last night. Both my shoulders have been feeling quite decent lately (and Lo finished me with a north/south kimura that did not hurt until it was supposed to, ha!, so that’s nice), so we moved my next visit out 4 weeks, which Tom said is what normal people schedule. Heh.
I have all these plans for things I’m going to do with my sudden-found free time, but I also know how easily distracted I am and how often I do the opposite of what I’d planned to do if only for the reason that it was planned. (Yes, even when I’m the one that planned it. And trying to plan only things I know I won’t want to do so that I’ll procrastinate by doing the things I really want to do doesn’t work, either, since I’m smarter than myself.)
One of the things — the only one that I’m guaranteed to do, actually — is to catch up on my NaNoWriMo story, which is currently about 1,000 words behind because I didn’t write most of the weekend, but I’d gotten ahead last week, so didn’t get too far behind. (I’m at 22,200 words, though my characters just hijacked my story and took off in a submarine through an underground river. So we’ll see where that goes… literally, lol.)
Anyway, see ya’ll in a week or so!
