So on and off, much more on than I would like, I've been getting sick.  The last one in particular was nasty involving running to the bathroom every 30 minutes.

I think I've beaten my immune system to death.

In order to keep up with my BJJ training schedule I've cut back on the intensity, volume, duration, and frequency of my strength and conditioning.  I'm putting a lot of work into sleeping effectively, and I'm thinking more about recovery modalities.

I have a Thai massage scheduled for next week.  I'd have had it sooner, but the practitioner - a hippy perhaps not surprisingly - is in Telluride for a week for the Bluegrass Festival.

So I'm figuring it out.

And the upshot of all this recent shitting is that I weigh 193.6 pounds in a gi now.

I'm not sure yet what weight I want to fight at at the World Seniors, but I have been casually eyeing 195.

So this should be good except that I have a tournament June 28.  To avoid fighting one of my team mates we made an agreement that he would take 195, and I would take 205.

It's a weird situation to be in a week out from a tournament, but I guess I'll have to go on a diet.

Pure Anabolism
