My body’s starting to feel a little better. I still have a lot pain and stiffness from those “my body’s falling apart” episodes. The orthopedic Docs have always told me that it takes about a year for soft tissue injuries to heal completely. Because of my Familial Loose Joint syndrome, it sometimes takes a bit longer than normal. A smart person would not push their luck… I’m trying really hard to be smart. With that in mind, I want to set some realistic goals for July.
- Priority one, train three times a week.
- Focus on the open guard positions. I need to develop smoother transitions and better foot placement. My open guard sweeps are there. I just need to finese them.
- Develop an intimate relationship with the cross collar choke.
- Make time for friends and do activities that don’t revolve around jits.
That’s enough about me. What are you doing in July?
