Cheers fellas and err, sorry Partyboy.
I really do find BJJ the most physically and mentally tiring thing i've ever done. Add to that the fact that I've been getting up before 6 to travel round the country for meetings and I think you're right - burnout.
Funny, but when I'm feeling like that towards Jits, I still find it easy to go to the gym and lift or do cardio. Maybe because I'm working at my own pace?" The reason elite level MMAists don't fight with aikido is the same reason elite level swimmers don't swim with their lips." - Virus

I thought you posted recently that you'd just got back from holiday - 'cos otherwise, I'd have said you need a holiday.
Agree with the comment that the days you don't want to train often turn out to be the best sessions.
It just might be that the problem is having to get up before 6AM to get to meetings around the country. No wonder you're jaded.
Rest up a bit and you'll soon feel the mental urge to get back into training. Good luck.
Oh, BTW for our friend in Dallas, it's pissed down all effing week in London - especially today. Got wet going to work, got drenched going to JJ, got went going home. And it's supposed to be Summer.
