Went in early this morning. Adam, Justin, and Will were all planning to be there, but only Justin came. So after he and I warmed up (on the Swiss balls, of course — he can stand; I can barely stay on my knees), we rolled for about 45 minutes. I got my butt thoroughly and completely and entirely whooped. All good stuff, and I see lots of things to work on.
I bungled the sweep from Thursday a few times, so he stopped to show it to me a few more times; never did pull it off, though. He wasn’t letting me get away with anything sloppy, which everything seemed to be, or without good pressure, which I had none. Managed to always set myself up to be swept. Also dropped myself into several triangles; one he finished quickly, another he let me attempt to defend, though it did no good. There was a calf pinch, several ankle locks or heel hooks, a kneebar (that I rolled myself in to while trying to escape something else, doh), the Twister (maybe two? did escape one of them, though I think it was more him giving it up to try something else), an armbar, … probably more, but I don’t remember.
My ribs on the right are bruised from Thursday night. Any knee-on-belly hurt. A lot. Almost to knocking the wind out of me just from the pressure. Both sides. Ow.
Adam, Mark, and new-old Kevin (who used to train with Tim 6-7 years ago) came in for the normal class time. The guys paired up and rolled, then switched. I worked on shrimping a lot; working on getting my hips completely off the ground and posting up on my shoulder. Later, Adam showed a couple of gi chokes, which we drilled a couple of times. Lots of talking theory and showing a few things throughout the day.
After the guys let, I did mini-Cindy again:
- 3 pullups
- 6 pushups
- 9 squats
- 12 minutes
- 14 rounds
Only one round better than last time. The squats were the worst part! My hips were hurting.
Another Butt Kicking
