Glad I stuck in there

I rolled out of bed this morning stiff as a board. Every joint and muscle felt like it couldn't move.

This afternoon's class was light for some reason, only 4 guys there besides me, none of them particularly good training partners because all were fairly new (except one blue belt) and significantly bigger - bigger than my usual training partners. I didn't want to roll at all, especially considering the group and the state of my body. But Seph rolled with me first, and I felt better after that. The warm-up seemed to help my body feel better, only 3 more matches before class ended, but I felt pretty good during and after sparring. I even got one of the passes Abmar Barbosa taught in his seminar on Wednesday night (one of the best seminars I've been to).

I had packed a lunch today since I didn't want to drive home and waste gas between afternoon and evening class (those of us without significant income need to be frugal, lol). Instead I went to Ryan's and cleaned his car, it was disgusting! I even took it to the gas station and vacuumed it out. After lunch, cleaning, and speaking to a few different companies about quotes for movers, it was time to head back to the gym. Unfortunately, the kinks had returned, lol!

A few more people showed up to evening class. Once again I didn't feel like sparring, yet once again after I started moving, I forgot that I was sore. This time I was able to catch a sweep from bottom of side mount that Abmar showed the other day. All in all, not a bad day. :)

Good luck to everyone competing at ADCC tomorrow (Ryan, Paul, Val, Johnny)! I'm more nervous than if I was competing, haha.
