    We, May 2
    BJJ - seoi nages, grip sparring, Xande sweeps

    Turns out last tuesday was just a prelude - got hit by a stomach virus on wednesday halfway through my last lecture. Spent my time until friday solely in bed and by sunday I could hold solid foods down again.

    On the positive side, I dropped 3kg down to 95kg since last monday.

    Did a multiday hike with some friends in the Alps over the long weekend. Had a great time, covered a lot of ground and at least 1000 vertical meters per day and got some sweet views.

    I've ditched power cleans and front squats because of wrist strain. As a consequence I'll restructure my training a bit with a medium intensity squats alternating with deadlifts and more upper body exercises total. My left knee is still recovering, but it should be back to normal somewhen next week

    As both knees got pretty cranky after last weeks session, they seem to have calmed down. I used this as an opportunity to think about my exercise selection and decided to include some single-leg stuff for accessory work, as I'm pretty bad at them and seem to injure bottom half more due too instability and weaknesses.

    It seems my knees have not calmed down, it took one squat with weight to make me feel like a geriatric. Made up with a lot of small stuff and easy mobility stuff inbetween, but I'd like to know whats wrong.

    Still alive, here's a short summary of the last weeks:

    - Been on two music festivals and had a lot of activity, drank too much and slept too little
    - Not a lot of training going on, but took part in a company run (took me 37 min for 6.2km, not bad for zero prep)
    - I'm going to fly to South America in late July for an exchange semester, currently finishing projects in uni/work
    - Probably will just get a couple of BJJ session in the next weeks
    - Lifting will resume then, there should be a semi-decent gym at my dormitory
