We don't decide what happens to us - but we always have the choice of how we react to it.
This last training camp was a complete mess to be honest. From a staph infection in my elbow, to torn ligaments in my knee, to straining the back so bad on my third day in the US that I lost the following 10 days of training, to finally injuring my ribs only two weeks before the fight... At the end I didn't know whether to laugh or cry about the whole situation, because I spent more time riding a stationary bike & rehabing than I wrestled & sparred COMBINED in my preparations for this fight.
The mental stress is worse than the physical though. When you have a big task in front of you and feel like you can't perform, but don't want to let people down either... My meditation practise certainly helped with this 🧘♂️
Luckily I didn't feel any injuries during the fight, but certainly the lack of physical preparation... Being unable to wrestle back I thought it would be stupid to fight fire with fire, so instead I used "water" and went to my jiu-jitsu constantly attacking submissions instead.
As always, I will grow from this. Aleady have a plan in mind before the next one 💪...
