I did stand up sparring for almost the entire workout tonight. It was good practice. My cardio really needs some work. We were doing 5 min. rounds though. I will only be doing 3 min rounds for my fight in August. There was a guy named Jordan there tonight who weighs roughly the same amount as me, 130. It was cool going with someone about the same size as me. I mean he is still a man so he's strong but the rest of the guys I was sparring with tonight were all at least 180 I think. At the very end, for the last 3 min of sparring, I sparred with Sara. She trains a lot of muay thai so it was fun.
I rolled for a few min with Sara, until her band aid came off and she had to go grab some tape. I rolled with Jordan for at least 6 minutes, it might have been longer. Neither of us tapped the other. I sure was getting tired, but instead of making sure I used technique I think I ended up muscling a lot. It's weird when you get tired and end up doing the opposite of what you should. I was just laying there letting him squish me some of the time, when I should have been trying to scramble a little more to stop him from being able to squish me and make me more tired. Oh well maybe next time I recognize it before I am blogging about it and be able to swish it up a bit in training. :-) We will see. BJJ tomorrow night!
