Ouch, careful with that... I bruised mine at boxing a little while ago. After a few weeks they felt more or less fine when lifting, so I went back to bjj... big mistake; too soon. Set me back an extra couple of weeks.

Well I will cancel it on Friday if it is still bothering me and I am hoping to just drill and slow roll. PS my new gym is fucking awesome. It doesn't even feel like working out, it feels like a giant playground.

Another rest day but got in 40 mins of cardio. Did some sprints today, that wore me out pretty badly. I also got to watch UFC 146 for free at my new gym.
