Back from Vacation: Training

Back from vacation, I plunged into work, where it felt like I was two weeks behind after one week of vacation. But I also got in some good training, including a couple of mornings running in the gym at work on the treadmill as cross training.

My school has new students from another school nearby that combined with ours, so there are new folks to spar and train with. I got a brown belt in a triangle choke, woohoo!

I put in extra time after my two grappling classes, working on my jab on the heavy bag and trying to practice close-range sparring. Last night, did standup sparring, and my jab and head movement were a little better; but I'm dropping my right hand (from exhaustion? from feeling like my opponents are juuust out of range? from concentrating on other things?) among other flaws.

I wouldn't keep coming back if there weren't always things I could improve, I guess.

Sounds like you were able to get straight back into it after vacation - it usually takes me a week or two to get back up to full steam!
