Home

Got home yesterday from Brasil. It has been good to be back home and sleep in my own bed.

However. it's not easy picking yourself up after the failure I experienced over there. After pushing myself 10-12 weeks solid since February, I got really sick just before going overseas. Then at the training camp in Rio, I hurt my shoulder and was unable to do much from then on.

 

It is really frustrating to have had my best lead up to Nationals that I’ve had for a long time and then to have a good portion of that training compromised.

 

I now have just over a week to prepare for the National Titles. Instead of tapering off I am going to bust my butt with some really hard sessions to see if I can sharpen up my Judo.

 

Given that I started my preparations for the Nationals 16 weeks ago, it’s an understatement for me to say that I am pumped up to fight next week. A good result (winning) will be a massive milestone for me, given the ups and downs with my Judo over the past couple of years.

 

Post Nationals, I am pretty excited too at the prospect of a little bit of time off, staying in and watching TV and being able to work properly and save some $$$ for the second half of this year.

Judo is one of the easiest sports to make you feel miserable when you are not winning, and the complexity of the sport can lead practitioners to feel like they are getting nowhere or even going backwards.
