day 1187 – mat privileges

image

what i’ve been stressing out about has finally arrived. stepping on the mat for my first competition this season. after an offseason of training, i feel more conditioned physically and mentally to have a stronger competition season. i felt i had my top game today; fueled myself properly and zoned in the second my pre-game warm up began. i’m happy with my shipjin, the best it’s ever been and came out with a bronze. i had a lot of fun this portland trip but four days running around at the venue is exhausting. it’s time to go home and get a good night’s sleep
