Got over myself
I'm moving on from the Fran. There will be other times to make her my homegirl, as one of the CrossFit t-shirts says. My next torment is double unders (while jumping rope, pass the rope under your feet twice for every jump. I am Spazzy McGee at the double unders, so of course I'm going to work on them all the time now.)
The No-Gi Mundial is this coming weekend. I am not nervous yet, though it will be my first time competing in the brown/black women's division. But since it is my first time, I feel like I have nothing to lose and everything to gain. I dreamt about it last night, in a good way. I was all fired up to compete. Amazing what a few rest days will do for your focus. I took Friday and Saturday off from everything physical, and it has really given me renewed energy. I know, duh. But I'm terrible about rest, so I have to learn to work it into my schedule.
I worked out yesterday and today, I'll work out tomorrow, and then Wed and Thurs I'll roll lightly to stay loose and tighten up some last minute things. Then I'll take Friday off, and I'm assuming I fight on Sunday, so I'll take Saturday off too. If I fight on Saturday, well so much the better. Then I can relax while watching the UFC.
In other news, I finished a draft of a book proposal about my Vision Quest. I'm having some people I trust review it for me, and then I'll start farming it out to agents and publishers. So if you are a friend of mine, start thinking about who you want to play you in the movie version! (Yes, I'm thinking big and positively.)
