Get this:

I train with Francisco because he has in all his ... enthousiasm accepted the offer for an MMA fight in Germany. So, I help him out on occassion. I get pummeled a bit and I get bruised but all in all the damage is rather restricted. So it was last sunday, at least. I had fun and it felt useful. Then afterwards I go swimming with my Sis and her family and I manage to nearly slip a couple of disks in my back and I manage to smash my elbow into some metal pole whilst decending a water slide.

Moral of this story: if you ever get offered the choice between swimming with family or MMA training choose the latter. It is less dangerous. You'll stay healthier longer. Trust me.

Ouch. This is why I avoid swimming all together. However, I also avoid getting pummelled in some mock fighting. I think I made wise choices.

I'd rather get excercise carrying books around from one end of the room to the other.

Short on exercise. You should join us ... get to the dark side.

Anyway ... elbow still painful.
