In the past, when I announced that I was on some new training regimen or on the hunt to learn a new submission I would go on a tear. However, after a couple of years on hiatus and a new drive to train again, I have found that I have been all talk this time.
Have I exercised? Yeah, but nothing special. Two to three times a week (non-BJJ related). Have I trained like someone getting ready to go back to the rigors of BJJ? No.
I have thought about it and I realized that with all of my new ventures in the past, I have blogged my actions and results every time I train. That kept me honest; it allowed me to keep a record and I could see my growth.
I will do it again!
