I have tried blogging previously and failed miserably, however at this point this old munki needs to focus his thoughts.  I have been training in BJJ for about four years, but I have spent half this out with broken bits and I am currently a few weeks away from shoulder surgery, which will have me out of training for another three months.  Yes awesome!!

I have armed myself with plenty of books and videos so I can keep learning, even if I can’t train.  I have learn from the last time.  Yes I went through the same surgery at the beginning of the year, so I am preparing for my recovery.  Besides the books and videos, I have a supply of collagen tablets, krill oil, udo’s oil all of which was recommended to me by the instructor on a recent kettlebell course, who was my age and had gone through similar surgery and recovered a lot quicker than I did the first time. So I have some hopes that my munki ass will be back in the gym and on the mat a lot quicker than last time.

My post op wounds, they don’t look much but it took a long time to recover.

I actually enjoy the learning, challenging and lifestyle aspects of BJJ so I really want to put some efort into it, even though I am 42 I have aspirations of maybe competing one day.  Yes I have a full job, which is a lot of responsibility, but after the surgery I am going forward with dedication for my health and training.  So I thought putting down my munki musing will help me with this.  If monkeys can write Shakespeare I might eventually come out with something either usefully or interesting to someone else.

Throw me a banana if you have any comments.
