BJJ fundamentals. Worked on a hip toss, then we worked on a hip bump sweep and kimura from guard, and not letting people get head control from side control, and reguarding from side (I keep forgetting not to put both knees in at once, but it won't happen IRL, because I never hip escape enough to have space for both knees anyway), and then a Torreando pass variation which I don't like, and then we did some drills. I think I did pretty well advancing position against someone 3 times my size (got mount once, got his back once, got an arm once) starting on top side before he used his size/strength/technique to escape.

Lifted on 10/24; was tired and sore so low reps, high weight.
Jits on 10/25; drilling class.
Took 10/26 off b/c I had to work during lifting time.
10/27 will go to open mat.

So drilling last week was working on putting hooks in when transitioning from top turtle to rear mount (and they tried to escape), and variations therein. I think that's all we worked on.

Today at open mat I just worked on technique, since I didn't sleep that well last month. Working on escaping my hips more, protecting my head (i.e. stopping people in side from getting head control), plus the usual guard passes and guard game. I think I only rolled for about a half hour... it was good, though, I did 5 days of training this week.

Diet this week was pretty dang good, though I have been eating a bit of cheese here and there, and some sugar. But overall pretty good and lost all the weight I gained during my 4-day food tour extravaganza (media trip.)

Went to the chiro again yesterday and he said I was strong bilaterally and my tissue was healing well and now would be a good time for cupping or something, and that I was building a ton of muscle fast which may be why i still can't extend my arm all the way yet.

I won the grand prize during a Gold Medal Bodies contest on facebook, so I get 30 days of training, and I'm totally gonna use it to work on some low weight db complexes or rope jumping or something to lose a bit of weight without being too hard on my joints. I think my weight is fine, except that I'd be at a competitive disadvantage if i competed at it b/c i'd be going against tall lanky girls with good guard games.

I totally haven't been writing my stuff, but it's basically open mat or 101 jits, and Oly until today has been snatches, clean and jerks, squats and presses.

Today was a bit different, though. We worked on hang snatches because I'm learning how to keep the bar closer to my body. Then just cleans at higher weights. Then deadlifts on the boxes. Then split jerks on the high boxes. Then presses behind my head.

So I didn't train much last week because I went to see the Goddamn Gallows play on Tuesday and then we went to see Bob Dylan on Wednesday and I hosted a book group on Thursday and then I had to work on Friday and Saturday morning, and there's nothing on Sundays. So I guess I only trained on Monday and took six days off.

But today I went back to the Oly gym and I did snatches and then snatches off the boxes with light weights to work on keeping the bar close to my body and then I did clean and jerks and then he made me do behind-the-neck presses, which I hate, and then I had to do squats, and got up to 2 sets of 5 with 50k, so that was cool, and then he took off some weight so i had to do a set of 10 with 40k or something. or maybe it was 45, i can't remember. Then he had me jump on a box, and then he tried to make me jump on two boxes and I was like fuck no, I barely cleared the first one. But he thinks I can jump it next time, haha, um no.

Also one of my stories got killed today by dumb people who think they don't have to pay for the work I'd done so far, so I was super pissed off, and tried to channel my aggression into lifting, and I think it made me lift faster, which is good.

I have to take tomorrow off jits but I'll do Oly on Wed and BJJ on Thurs AM and then I work on Friday but I can train Saturday in the morning.

Wed was still sore so I went to Oly anyway and did some snatches and then did some c+js and then did some front squats on the boxes (so like 1/4 squats) and some front presses (i hate the behind the neck ones so i was happy) and then some jumping.

and then today (thurs) I skipped bjj b/c i'm sick. and it sucks.

Worked tonight. Hoping I get to go to open mat tomorrow AM, but I'm still getting over this cold. My boyfriend pointed out to me that it's been about 2 weeks since I've been to jits, mostly because I've been juggling work and meetings and events I go to for fun and being sick, and I thought I was handling everything pretty well, but I'm glad he's around to point out all the ways in which I fail.

Went to open mat, got about 7 rolls in. I feel like I'm moving my hips better from the bottom, and then on top guard I can maintain hip position a bit better to avoid sweeps and subs, so it's good, I think my Olylifting is helping my game a bit. Still feel like I'm just going through the motions.

So I missed BJJ yesterday due to a deadline and did Oly today; switching my schedule around because of a new gym schedule so Oly will be Tues/Thurs.

I did snatches and c+js and then back squats up to 5X50kg a couple times (or maybe three, i forget) and then i did shoulder presses and some jumping and called it a day.
