Grinding it Out

Hottest day of the year so far, 87 when I arrived at the gym. Took about 1 lap of the warm up to realize I was in for a long night. Combination of the heat and dinner I think. Warmed up slowly.

Tim led the class, some lapel/sit up guard sweeps. Easy stuff. Nick and I drilled at a slow and steady pace.

For rounds, I had Tim (twice), Nick, Stu, Gary, and Alex. Tim was thankfully merciful. I mentioned I wasn’t 100% with Stu, and he and I flowed for our round. Ironically, my hardest round was against the lowest ranked guy, Gary. He got me in kesa, and just smashed me. Figures, for an old judo guy. I should review my escapes from there.
