*insert ”boy it’s been a while” lines*
Been lazy and busy. So here's what's on my mind at the moment.
Spent Valentines Day weekend in Mexico City. It's a blast down there. It's not an expensive trip: airfare and Air B and B rates are fair, and it's cheap to get around and eat/drink. There's so much to do down there and such diverse activities. I went to the Basilica De Guadeloupe and even if you aren't Catholic it's worth the trip to see. It's perfectly taken care of, but you can feel the history-a theme with a lot of attractions. Walking around the historical section and seeing the old buildings was awesome, as well as modern architecture all over the city. I spent time at Estadio Azteca and Arena Mexico as well. There's a lot of other things there I didn't see, but my wife and I want to go back.
BJJ has been awesome. I've been training 4-5 days a week, mornings three days and two at night. Thursday nights have been made ”Advanced” classes where only blue belt and above can train. It's ran almost like a competition class, where the intensity is ratcheted up. It's been a grind and I feel like I'm stepping into beartraps vs. Black belts, but I'm learning a lot. Since starting to do so much training, I feel better and I don't feel like I've been ejected out of a car wreck. I know I'm doing all right when after class I feel like doing more or I'm pissed and want to go back out right there and prove to myself I don't suck. That's a good thing.
