Progress Report, May 2012

on June 1, 2012

I’m back on the mats! That’s a big step forward. Only in this last week — the rest of the month was still a lot of couch-sitting and self-directed PT — but I seem to be able to do more and go longer each time in class, so I’m pretty confident that I’m on track to full speed ahead.

The big issue I’m encountering now, though, is that 50% of my body and 75% of my game are currently worthless. I keep pulling everything on the “bad” side, which used to be my “good” side, and then having to re-think and extricate myself and try to do things on the newly-promoted “good” side, which used to be the “bad” side — and if you’re confused by now, think of how confused *I* am when I’m in the middle of a roll and trying to do these things! Ugh. I’m sure it will get better as I work on it more, and I’m trying not to let the frustration get to me because hey, look, I’m back on the mats!!, but I will remind you that I’m not terribly patient when my own body is trying to be dumb.
