I intended to compete at US Grappling’s Richmond tournament this weekend, but my body has other plans. Sunday night, I got violently sick and spent the night sleeping on the bathroom floor just to be close to the toilet. (Yeah, TMI, I know.) Yesterday I spent the entire day in bed and eventually could keep down some Pedialyte and ginger ale. Today I still slept a lot, but could also sit up on the couch for a few hours at a time; I also graduated to chicken noodle soup and Coke. Hopefully tomorrow I can start working from home a little.
The only bright spot in all this is that I did finally make the weight I’d been aiming for last week — although it’s not a method that I’ll ever want to try again.
Anyway, so I’m taking all this week off from BJJ, instead of next week as I’d planned. (Maybe next week, too; we’ll see how it’s going.)
