Despite being very lazy about blogging the past 2 months, I've been training quite actively. I also turned 30 last week, which I hope motivates me to train more not less.
As a total, I did 4,2 training sessions per week in March and 4 per week in April. I have to say I am fairly happy with this rhythm, especially since I was sick for a few days and have had problems with my right shoulder for the past 2 weeks or so. In March I did a lot of gi jiu jitsu but in April I was able to also no one nogi session each week. I haven't done a lot of wrestling these past 2 months but the majority of the nogi classes are strictly takedowns anyways.
Nogi has been useful in another sense as well, because it helps me get in shape much better than jiu jitsu where I can dominate with grips a lot. As the Rome Open is approaching, I have to improve my conditioning and watch what I eat. You can't really rely on a last minute weight cut in the promised land of pizza and pasta.
Just got my summer holidays sorted as well..Not going to the mundials this year but I've got a jiu jitsu & surfing holiday planned anyways
