This week I did a couple of sessions of Judo. I'm enjoying it and learning some new moves each week so it's going well. In randori I'm usually able to get at least one Osota Gari take down. Unfortunately I came down with a cold/cough on Thursday night so I didn't go to Judo today due to being sick. I don't get sick that often but when I do get sick it always seem to be in August or September, which is when flu season peaks.

Feels like ages since I last posted. I was sick for about a week. I missed 3 days of work and came back to work last Thursday and I could've trained on Thursday night but I didn't want to risk infecting anyone at Judo so I waited until Saturday to go to Judo again. I took up Coges advice and have been watching some youtube tutorials of basic moves.

Even though Judo is about technique, size/bodyweight definitely helps. There's some obese guys that train and it's hard just practicing the throws on them let alone trying to land them in randori. Ground work is even worse. I haven't learnt any joint locks properly yet. I've been taught a couple of basic hold down/choke techniques that work against them. However, once they are on top of you it's very difficult to get out of and almost impossible if they have you in a hold down/choke.

There's a competition in a couple of weeks so they were doing weigh ins on the scale. One of the obese guys I was training with weighed in. I thought he would have been around 100-110kg because he's shorter than me and probably only 5'8 and doesn't look like he lifts or anything. Anyway it was 127kg (280lbs) and I was thinking no wonder I struggled to lift him! The other guy was a bit taller and weighed in at 140kg (308lbs). I don't know the weight of the other 3 guys but I'm guessing they would all be over 110kg (242lbs).

Also on Saturday they announced that one of the Judo players had been missing since Thursday night and was declared as a missing person. He was a blue belt that called 'old man' because he's 43.  I did randori with him a few times and he always tried to throw me but he was only about 70kg (154lbs) so it was difficult for him because I'm at least 20kg heavier than him. To his credit he has got me a couple of times but when I go against other blue belts or senior ranks they take it easier on me but he just goes full pace and tries to execute, which is good. I remember the first time I had randori with him he just went hard out and after about 2 minutes (we do 3 minute rounds) he asked if I weighed over 100kg. I said nah I only weigh around 90kg and I could see the disappointment in his face.

Edit- Old man was in the news and unfortunately they found his body yesterday but said it wasn't any suspicious circumstances with his death. Apparently he suffered from some mental health issues. The instructor didn't say anything about his mental health to us after training. He just said that his wife appreciated the support and we were welcome to message her but just not to visit her because she needed rest. Then after training, some of the guys were talking privately saying that they were really worried because he had some mental health issues. It wasn't much later than 24 hours and I saw on the news that his body had been found. I'm expecting it's going to be a bit sad tomorrow at training and I feel terrible for his wife.

As a bigger guy I always loved the weight difference. I haven't trained with too many guys over 100kgs though and I can imagine the fun in having a 127kg guy sitting on your chest. Having said that and as much as it sucks in the beginning concentrating on technique over strength will serve you so much better later on. Especially with your strength you'll be destroying guys soon enough.

I agree that in the long run it will definitely be beneficial training with bigger people. It forces you to use better technique. If you don't use good technique you won't be able to get the throw. With smaller people you can have sloppy technique and just rag doll them but obviously in the long run you're just selling yourself short doing that. I'm a long way from destroying anybody atm.

I went to Judo last night and trained. I was going to go to the gym today but I felt fatigued with my legs (probably from squatting for the first time in ages even though it was extremely low volume) so I went for a long walk instead. I've walked 14k steps today. I'll hit up the gym on Friday and Saturday.

My old rugby league club made the Grand Final and had a game on Sunday. One of the old trainers called me and asked if I wanted to have breakfast at the club and get a bus with the players for the Grand Final so I decided to take him up on the offer. My old team ended up winning the game 24-18. It was good to see a lot of players I used to play with get a championship. I don't go to many of the games because I always get itchy feet and want to play. By the end of the day I was sick of people asking me why I wasn't playing and whether I was planning on playing next season. It seemed like I had the conversation about my achilles about 50 times yesterday with everyone encouraging me to get surgery so I can play again.  I'm happy with my decision to retire but it would've been nice being able to play and win a championship.

I haven't lifted any weights since Friday but my hamstrings are really sore. My achilles was playing up today as well. I was getting random pain on it throughout the day. I walked 16k steps yesterday and was on my feet pretty much the whole day from 9am to 10pm so maybe the standing contributed to its condition. I could've gone to the gym and done upper body training today but after last night's celebrations I just want to have an early night and get some good sleep. The fact that my achilles is painful just after watching rugby league says it all- I'm in no condition to play.

I missed Judo training tonight because I got held up at work late.

Soreness-
Hamstring tightness.
Initially I thought it may have been DOMS from squats but the only conclusion I can come to is it's from doing some short max effort sprints at Judo on Saturday. I did some stretching and foam rolled them tonight. The problematic one (left side) feels slightly strained so  I will have to nurse it for the next week or two to keep it safe.

Left Achilles-Felt much better today than yesterday.

Gym-

Bench-
barx12
60x6
90x3
105x3
95x5 for 3 sets

Chin Ups-
10,10,10

Jump Rope-
220 skips.

I'm not going to do any squats until my left hamstring feel less tight/less strained.
