I missed Sun - Tuesday with the stomach flu. Sad to be down so soon after ramping up my training. I eased back in Wednesday with just some jiu Jitsu, too Thursday off, and had a great Jiu Jitsu class followed by a tough MMA workout this evening. My back was very painful, but I made it through.
Did some sparring. As expected, my ground work looked really good. My stand up was not as rusty as I thought it might be. My transitions into the clinch were weak though. I was dropping my hands badly. My cardio is still a long ways from where it needs to be as well. Right now, I am 20 pound over fight weight as well, so that too will be a major focus.
I am working with a different MMA coach this time around and so far have been very impressed. I am looking forward to great improvements in short order.
