    June 4th.

    From reading about knee injuries, it feels like torn meniscus due to how it slips (turning on an angle or foot landing on wrong angle) and the pain level (none at all unless it is very cold outside or if it slips).
    Oh dude that's such a shame, I hope it turns out alright, sounds painful!

Don't run too much and do some drills/guard work/ PASSIVE ROLLING none of that "let's go light :turns on 100%:" nonsense

    OR

    just freaking wait
    Thanks for the advice guys, I've decided to wait. I'm getting really frustrated about not being able to actively exercise though. I've back riding to work (not pushing hard, taking it easy riding), but no running or jits now for the past month. I've been far more 'relaxed' with my diet (I'm still a fat boy inside) and have put on 4 or 5 lbs (which I'm not bothered by, because I'll shed those pretty easy when I can run again) and am about 158lbs now.

    I never thought I'd miss exercise, but living in the UK, half of the year is rainy and grey, so I tend not to run too much, but we're getting beautiful weather here now, so all I want to do is get out and run!

    If you have access to a pool try running in chest high water you want go far but tire you out without shocking any of your joints, and maybe some hoties there too

    This right here is great advice. When I had hernia surgery I did a lot of swimming to get back into shape.

    Thanks man, I'm going to go swimming Friday after my meeting with the specialist, good advice. There'll definitely not be any hotties there though, because the 'open pool' time there on a Friday is the time that the local care homes take the really old people down, they just clutter the pool up, they are SO... BLOODY... SLOW.

    Oh dude, that sounds horrible! Does it hurt?
    I've just got back from the meeting with the specialist, and she's referred me on to have a scan taken of the knee, to look at the joint to see exactly what's going on in there. No closer to knowing exactly what the issue is / how to stop it recurring, but I've also had a GAIT analysis today (where they look at how you run) and I overpronate a lot when I walk. I'm ordering new running shoes today and inserts for my shoes, which SHOULD correct a lot of the issues I've been having.

    Bank holiday this Monday in the UK, so I'm having a cheat weekend and getting all of my cravings for bad food out of my system, to start running/jits again on Monday. Missed it a LOT!

    Hope those inserts work out for you, Dan. My knee may slip occasionally, but not nearly as often as it used to before I upgraded to Asics. I am flatfooted so I need a high arch running shoe/inserts.

    Love the cheat days but my stomach feels it the next day. Been trying to eat a raw diet lately, with some setbacks but I will get better with what I eat over time. Problem is that I get annoying urges for salty foods. Been filling that with nuts, especially pistachios.

    Generally, my slips hurt for 2 minutes then I walk it off. My slip happened after 15 km when fatigue started to set in. The slippage generally happens due to lack of mindfulness of adhering to proper form, so I corrected my form and continued to walk regardless and things were fine. I have found proper footwear is extremely important, something I didn't have to worry about when I was younger.

    Steadily getting my leg strength back with bikram yoga, elliptical, squats, jogging and walking but am shying away from running as it puts too much stress on my knee. I can feel the meniscus after heavy workouts and take the next days easier. Gotta get my cardio in but I must stay mindful that I am not 100%.

    Talking

    Hey guys.

    I finally (after 8 weeks off) went back to training last week. I took it easy last week and just trained once, but I've been twice this week. Luckily I haven't had any kind of twinges or aches and pains, and I'm due to have an MRI on my knee on Friday.

    Training's been going surprisingly well actually! I was expecting to be really rusty, but I've been running through techniques in my head (and on my girl) so to be honest a lot of the second-nature stuff is still in there, and I'm not back at square one like I thought I would be.

    I've been rolling with a mate that started at the same time as me, so he's a pretty good measuring stick as to how far I've dropped back, and this week I've been 3-2 in taps in sparring, catching him twice with armbars and once with a pretty messy triangle-armbar.

    My natural leg flexibility is definitely starting to do me some favours now. A lot of the guys at the gym said it would come in handy, but it's only really now that I'm holding my ground a bit in the gym that I really see how.

    I find that setting up the armbar, getting a good solid mount, then moving into s-mount and attacking the arm is really working well for me. I can keep those legs really tight around each of my opponents shoulders/upper arms, pin my head tight to the ground and get a really secure position to set up the armbar.

    Also from reverse scarf, stepping over into mount is something I've been able to surprise a few guys with, because they block with their leg, so I hook my toes, bring my knee against my chest and towards my chin, and step over. For the first time I've really been feeling like I'm adding some nice tools to my toolbox, as up until now I've had a number of basic techniques to go to, but haven't really had any go-to moves, or ones that give me particularly good results in sparring.
