Slipping

I thought I had a decent group on Saturday. Daryl, Rafa, Will, Larry, Little Bob and Nick. And, a year ago, it probably would have been a good group. Not so much on Saturday.

I can’t decided if it’s a lack of practice, a lack of stamina, or a combo of both. Heck, maybe I’m getting old. But I’m having a rough time lately. Nothing seems to be working for me very well. I’m constantly stuck in bad positions against everyone of my level or better. Against those that I should (in theory anyways) be tooling, I’m holding my own, but never really doing well.

And it’s frustrating. It’s probably foolish to think about what “should” happen, because there’s so much out of my control in that scenario. But it’s one of those things that can’t be helped.

Makes me happy that everyone is getting better. Makes me sad that I don’t think that I’m one of them. I’m sure it’s due to my lack of time to train, which really can’t be helped much.
