So I haven't posted in a month or something? Me being a slack blogger? Never would have seen that coming! Unfortunately I managed to break myself in a non-BJJ fashion, blowing up my admittedly dodgy back performing the simple task of cooking dinner. Whoever put the plates on the bottom shelf is to blame.
Much time with chiropractor results and the diagnosis is that my back is screwed. That's pretty normal for my back, but at the moment it's screwed AND it hurts, which is a little more inconvenient. I'm forbidden from attending BJJ classes probably until the end of the month, and the chiropractor in question "suggests" that I find a less strenuous sport. That's no fun, and it's only a suggestion. So far my back suggests that cooking is far more dangerous than BJJ and with proper warmups and stretching I'm perfectly capable of surviving classes. I guess that I'm going to have to discuss my attendance with the people in charge, but I really don't think there's going to be a problem.
So currently I'm spending most of my free time sitting on my backside. Getting unfit. It's going to be so very very bad when I finally get to return to doing some exercise. On the up side I've been able to get loads of reading done. As in actual books. How very exciting.
UFC 110 is apparently live on free to air TV in Australia. That's quite surprising, but I won't complain at all. I guess it'll be my first time watching an actual UFC show. I'm too cheap to actually buy them, so the best I get is 'wired' which generally plays 2 or 3 older matches each week. Fun times.
