    Thursday

    I slept well, HRV was 50 (good).

    A 1.5 walk in the park, having to avoid the local route due to the puppy getting 3 ticks on Tuesday :(

    I don't walk her off lead as there is too much distraction, so using a retractable lead. Clearly she wanted to run not walk, so as I walked, she ran circles round me the whole way :D

    Managed to get a small nap in to aid recovery, feeling very sore all over at the moment.

    Evening BJJ

    Takedown

    Similar to Tuesday
    Drop seoi nage to the opposite site (starting same grip)
    Felt like I was getting it a bit better.

    Ground work
    Sweep from half, pulling outside hand up and round to load up high on the chest, roll back to sweep and land in top half.

    A few rounds of sparring, felt like another good learning experience.
    I need to work on getting guard quicker on strong top players who "smesh" me in side control

    A rare selfie, for the sole reason that I am the proud owner of a new t shirt. Thanks @Mitch and the MAP team

    Monday
    2.27 mile walk run : 30 mins

    10 mins calisthenics
    5 min stretching

    Tuesday

    BJJ 1 hour

    Ground work
    Pendulum sweep on opponent standing from closed guard

    I've been studying the over under pass on video a fair amount and was able to apply it on 2 people in sparring.

    Wednesday
    BJJ
    Back take from side control, 2 gift wrap options, one with the leg over, the other with them blocking with their leg up.

    Tried to work it into sparring, but was difficult as I was sore so I was rolling fairly light.

    Thursday
    BJJ 1 hour

    My body feels sore, but energy levels up today.
    Ground work
    Worked the same drill as yesterday, glad to refine it.

    Sparring, although I didn't feel gassed, I think I was fatigued enough to affect my thought flow and reaction speed. I had brain lock up a few times in the middle of setting up passes, sweeps and submissions.
    I still feel I learnt from it as I worked on defense in sparring which I seem to be able to deal with well enough when that fatigued.

    Friday

    2.3 mile 28 mins more running than walking at a slow pace.

    5 minutes stretching

    With the bottle top kick going viral, I encouraged my daughter to give it a go before starting her TKD class.
    She gave it a go with a hook kick and managed it first go :D
    A bit of harmless fun before class.

    Saturday
    Recovery

    Sunday

    Allotment work, digging and weeding, worked up a sweat. I should probably set it as an activity on my watch.

    Monday

    1.95 mile walk/slow run run 27 mins

    10 mins calisthenics

    Legs up 2x10

    5 minutes stretching

    Tuesday

    Evening BJJ 1 hour
    Ground work:
    Hip bump sweep/kimura

    sparring for 25 minutes
    Some hard rolling, everyone seemed to be going for it :D
    Felt exhausted at the end
    Managed to pull off the flower sweep I'd been working on for a while

    Found a large bump on my shin, I don't know if this happened in sparring or just be being clumsy (I don't feel much on my shins).
    Packed ice and compressed on it seemed to help with the swelling.

    Wednesday

    Recovery day.

    Thursday

    BJJ 1 hour

    Ground work,

    Not sure the name of the choke, like a baseball bat choke.
    From side control, reach under near side to grip under collar. Pin the other hand with the head, ear deep thumb in grip, drop elbow toward and knees of the floor driving up with the elbow.

    Also a variation from North South, moving over to side control.

    Sparring.
    Tried to work the over under pass, knee slice pass and flower sweep.

    Items definitely needing attention:
    Side control defense/escape and mount defence/escape.

    1.6 mile run 17 mins with the new watch.

    10 min ice bath

    Evening BJJ 1 hour

    Takedown
    Reverse drop seoi nage.
    Getting back into this, the drop onto the knees I find difficult to program as I kept landing on my toes.

    Ground work
    Paper cut choke from side control and North South.

    3 rounds of sparring.
    focused on defense against higher grades.
    Pulled off my first ever traingle submission in sparring (struggled to finish this every time previous).

    Thursday

    BJJ 1 hour

    Reverse Drop seoi nage.
    I feel I am getting the swing of it now. I still hesitate on the drop the first few times in drilling.

    Side control switch to arm bar.
    I really like this setup, I rarely pull it off on sparring, I think I realised that this is because I usually go to mount from side control, so I may think about brining this into sparring more.

    3 rounds of sparring.
    Worked the over under pass again successfully a few times.


    Friday
    I planned a run, but work was mayhem, didn't get any time free.

    Was away the week of 21st for work. Missed out on the BJJ grading, but got to see the pictures of lots of the 4 stripes getting promoted. Looked like a great event!

    Tuesday in the hotel before work
    2 mile treadmill run
    Dumbbell bench
    10kg X10, 20kgx 10, 40kgx10, 45kg 3x10

    Wednesday
    2 mile treadmill run
    Stretching 10 mins
    Shadow boxing 2 minutes.


    Didn't have time for any other workout. I took my Gi in the off chance I'd have time to visit the legendary blue Renzo basement in NYC, but I only had a fleeting visit before flying home overnight Friday.

    Felt pretty ruined from the flight and minor jet lag, slept most of the weekend


    Tuesday 30th July

    BJJ 1 hour
    Back to it!

    Takedown:
    O uchi gari.

    I felt like I struggled with the foot work.

    Ground work.

    Triangle from under side control.
    Really liked this setup, also an option for straight arm lock ude gatame, or return to guard.

    3 rounds of sparring.

    Wednesday
    Recovery

    Thursday
    BJJ 1 hour

    Takedown
    O uchi gari

    Groundwork
    From under side control, moving away and as they go for near side jujigatame, roll back curl arm over the head to break posture, eziekiel whilst moving legs away into North South.

    3 rounds sparring
    I seem to end in arm traingle more frequently, I find this a hard one to finish.
    Submitted with a cross collar strangle, which I haven't done since my judo days (22+ years ago :D)

    Still focusing on pendulum sweep from guard, also working on attacks from guard which I feel is one of my weaker areas, along with side and mount escape.

    Friday

    2.4 mile run 24 mins
    this was on a field, so it felt a lot harder than running on my usual paved routes.

    Dog was off lead, and mostly looked confused as to why I was running in circles.
