Gonna Sine Yo Pity on the Runny Kine

I stink like poop.

It's true. So don't try to deny it, don't bother saying "there, there" or try to make me feel better. Some days are yours to be the hammer and sure enough it always comes back around because today was my day to be the nail.

I want to talk about how great it is to have Jake Mackenzie training at our gym this month, or all the other awesome jiu-jitsuness that is unfolding for Fifty/50. But today I stunk up the mats like one of Seph's farts - and they sure are nasty. Trust me.

I know I should quit, turn it in - but Ryan just paid $1500 for our plane tickets to Montreal next weekend for me to compete and today he just bought our Pan Ams tickets. So now I keep telling myself to be psyched...

Yesterday, I had one of my best wrestling lessons in a long time with James. Quang and I were beginning to feel like real wrestlers transitioning through movements as if we'd been doing it for years. Snap down, sweep single, snatch single, double leg, duck under, two on one, arm drag, etc, etc, etc. But today I was as off as a chimp face-fucking a frog. What?

Don't worry, I'm sure I won't hang up my belt and pack it away never to be seen or heard from again. Yesterday was awesome, today sucked, and tomorrow I plan to sine yo pity on the runny kine!


  1. Go read The Talent Code by Daniel Coyle. Quick read, short book. Focus on his stuff about "deep practice." The feeling you have of "sucking" is a sign that you are engaging in the most profitable kind of practice.

    I won't bother to pat you on the back or tut, tut you, it doesn't work on me either. I will say that the only time eating shitty food will NOT make you gain weight is when you're subconsciously trying to sabotage a make-weight. So don't bother. :)

  2. Glad to hear that I'm not the only one who feels like complete crap after a class sometimes. Just take enjoyment in the fact that you probably have a lot fewer crappy days than a newbie like me!! I think I am just going to start saying, "Please, sir, may I have another" every time I get tapped.

  3. Best post in the history of your blog.
