Tournament Date: 2009/05/02
Skill Level: Blue
Weight Class: 210+
There was only 1 other person in my skill/weight class. We did a best 2 of 3.
Watch closely boys and girls. This is the effects of not eating anything substantial on the morning of a tournament.
I knew I was in trouble as soon as we locked up at the beginning of the first match. I had no strength and felt like I had already rolled 3-4 hours. It was all I could do to keep him from passing my guard, much less be active myself. I didn't even need to cut weight; it was just a VERY stupid mistake on my part.
Lesson learned: eat a good breakfast and be hydrated.
I don't feel like I had the strength to do anything and don't feel like it is a good showing at all. Not getting a sub is the worst part. AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
There is another tournament in 2 weeks; I'll be ready for that one.
(You'll never guess: I'm the one in the AWESOME Rupture gear)
