When we go down for breakfast the waitress don’t bother to bring us menus. She just ask what we would like to drink with the standard food.
The security guy is serving us, as he occasionally do. I think it’s a way of breaking the monotony of the job. He comes with our food, looks at me and asks:” No bacon?” I’m at a loss, I thought we would get the usual. Then he cracks up on a big grin as the waitress comes out with the bacon on separate plate. All’s well that ends well.
Katja decides to pass on the BJJ this morning also. Yesterday had a lot of people in class and there had been a veritable sweat pool covering the floor in the studio. People were rolling and splashing around. It was gross, and didn’t really inspire to training today.
We spent time in the room preparing stuff (can’t disclose what yet) before Katja went to her private session. I left half an hour later to film her and to take a few pictures.
Then it was my turn to go a round with Moo. Katja came up when she finished her session and took pictures and video of me. It’s quite educational to see oneself on video. The details about hand placement for instance.
From there we spent the rest of the day inside to cool down and keep dry. Well, Katja did get a massage, but other than that… indoor.
A quick tour out for dinner in the heavy wind. It’s lightning visible in the horizon, so I guess we’re just at the outskirts of the heavy weather. We take a little walk and check out the sporting goods shops to see if we can find anything for Katja’s wrist. Hitting the heavy bags and pads daily takes it’s toll on the wrists when the hand wraps is not thight enough, and the gloves does’nt support the wrist. Since they make us use rather large gloves to minimize impact in sparring, it’s hard to tighten them enough. We had a nice walk, but no luck in getting anything usable. Maybe a morning a ride to the mall can remedy that.
Once again, we come to the Holiday Season, a deeply religious time that each of us observes, in his own way, by going to the mall of his choice.
