Mission: Europeans in one month

Ok, so I haven't updated much on the blog here lately. Why, you might ask? Because I am sick and tired of just writing the same crap about some new injury I got. To skip it real quick, I'll just list them instead:

- Inflammation in shoulder (16 months)
- Sore lower back from disc injury (8 months)
- Pain in left knee ACL (3 months)
- Pulled hamstring tendons (2 months)

 The last one happened at the London Open (I suspect it happened 2:06 in this match) and the physio today told me, that I was looking at 6-9 months of pain and rehab there.

 Enough about injuries! I have signed up for the European Championships in Portugal in January. It went pretty well last time, but with this years preparations consisting mostly of pullups and stretching (all I seem to be able to do), I don't have high expectations for a similar result in the black belt division.

I've actually managed to roll a bit today and yesterday, though. Everything hurts and I feel tired, weak and out of shape. But I'll do my best and I am sure the Euros will be a great experience no matter what.

jesus christ man! for real im being 100% serious, get on some testosterone or steroids. It will really help with your injury for what we are doing. That or go see a specialist, you probably have some serious imbalance. I was having back pain too, at least for me, i went to see a posture/yoga specialist, its helped tremendously.
