I actually did 20 fairly decent pushups tonight! I don’t think I’ve done that many at one shot since 1997. My ribs felt good enough to do some light sparring tonight. The sparring is still straining my lower back muscles just slightly, but I’m recovering slowly but surely. Ice, ice, baby! Although I didn’t submit either of the two white belts that I sparred, I at least managed to maintain dominant or neutral positions for the most part. The brown belt, of course, was a different story. I didn’t make much headway at all against him. However, I will say that I was able to pull off a modified handstand sweep on him, which is quite an accomplishment against someone with that level of skill. He didn’t stay on his back for long, though.
