Wrestling and Frustration

I'd been needing to work more on stand-up and now we have a wrestling coach coming in to teach 2-3 days a week! I have a long way to go but am beginning to feel more and more natural as it goes. I love the new drills he's having us do that I've never seen before. I think they are going to make a HUGE difference in my take down abilities.

I'm starting to feel frustrated that I can't train hard very much. The other girls are getting good fast but it's definitely not the same as where I used to be. The guys will roll and some of them will go hard but it's still not the same as rolling with a girl who isn't even slightly worried about hurting you. Even though Ryan says I'm grappling on a whole different level than even a few months ago, my cardio is suffering. I have to get back on the treadmills religiously between now and Pan Ams. I hate running but I'm getting basically no cardio in BJJ anymore since there isn't anyone for me to roll as hard as I can with. By next year these girls will be sick! Unfortunately however, patience is not my strong suit...
