I am 35 today. Seems weird to say. I don't feel that old.. or more correctly how old 35 looked on my parents. I have some aches and pains, but nothing that doesn't go away after a day or two off. So what's the difference? What does it mean to be 35? I can't really answer, because I don't really know. I'm just going to try and keep getting better and we'll see.
That said, I took most of this week off in the gym. I have a few aches and pains (hip capsule is cranky from all of the aggressive mobilization, and my back is just cranky) but I knew I couldn't take it easy at jiu-jitsu because one of the bigger guys at the school is prepping for Pan-Ams, so I've got to be able to get after him. So I took the week completely off from the gym. I have to say, it's been kind of nice. I'm feeling pretty good.
