I went to open mat yesterday. It was good. I got to study for my finals for a little while on the drive out there. I can't believe I get car sick so easily. It's really annoying.
Anyway, there were a good number of people at open mat but not too many. I like it when there are about 8 people in class. We did a pretty light warm up followed by the usual question and answer session Guybson does. I didn't ask any questions this week. It was a bit overwhelming listening to everyone else's questions though, it seemed like everyone had some questions.
I have been feeling not so hot when I am rolling lately. I think I am just in a funk. The sweeps I usually use and the control positions I can usually use have been hard for me to pull off this week for some reason. I feel like it is because I am in the middle of finals and my brain just doesn't have enough power to concentrate on my school material and jj as much as I need right now. This just tells me that most of my moves are still not ingrained in my muscles yet. Good to know.
I only have 2 finals left in law school. I am so happy to be so close to being done. I am a little sad to be leaving East West because we just got to start going to classes there.
I took a short break from studying Financial Institutions today to do a very light workout. Here's what I did:
About 10 min. of Capoeira - Ginga and various escapes as a warm up.
150 squeezes with the pilates circles - for my closed guard
75 reaches with the 8 lbs. medicine ball - where you hold your legs up in the air and reach up and touch your toes.
60 - 30 on each side - lunge squats w/ 2, 15 lbs kettle bells
30 total curls during the lunge squats
300 squats w/ 20 lbs weight vest
Stretch for like 10 min.
I didn't want to do too much but I feel like I should have done a little more. Maybe I'll get some work in tonight after we get done with all the School related stuff. Graduation celebration for the University LGBT Community and a dinner with some close friends.
ps. I weighed 126.4 after my workout. Then I had a protein shake and some puffins (great tasting organic cereal).
