I have been pretty busy the last couple of days so I haven't been able to blog about working out. I have been running a bunch with Josh. Yesterday (the day before now because I was too tired last night to continue to type) I got to go to open mat. Noe didn't go because she hung out with my mom and my other brother, Matt. They went hiking around Ithaca.
Open mat was really good. We did the usual warm up and then went into basics drilling. We did a bunch of arm bars and then did a bunch of butterfly sweeps. It was really good. Then we did 5 5 min. rounds. I rolled with James (4 stripe blue), Jake (3 or 4 stripe white), Guybson, Z (big huge beginner), and a brand new guy whose name I don't know. It was a really good workout. I got to work on some of my sweeps.
Yesterday was my law school graduation. Josh and I started off by going to the slope on campus to run some hills. We picked up my friend Carlos, on the way. He is still in his first year and has 1 test left so we told him the workout would be somewhat quick. We just planned on doing sprints on the hill for a little while.
During the warm up, which was just one short jog up the hill, a man pulled up in a church van and took our stuff. We were about a fourth of the way down the hill, when I noticed the man and asked Josh and Carlos if that man was digging around in our stuff. As soon as we realized he was, I started yelling and running, but it was too late he was already walking back over to his church van and took off. I chased him for a while but even though he stopped at the stop sign at the end of the street I didn't catch up to him. He made off with some weighted gloves, resistance bands, a t-shirt, 2 workout towels, and my car keys.
Josh and I decided we would just start the 3 mile run home because we weren't sure if Carlos would be able to get ahold of Noe. Plus we had to make sure we got home in time to start getting ready for my graduation. We ended up getting home at the same time as my mom, Noe, and Matt. They brought my car back to the house.
At least we still got a workout in.
