Me and Tiago rent an apartment at Costa da Caparica here in Portugal for one week (the other weeks we stay at his parents house more north of Lisbon. And here we have our dog Happy with us and in the evenings we are playing at the beach, chasing the waves and practice stop, sit and other basic stuff.
One of the few sports that actually works good for my body since my injury is thaiboxing. Here I can have more control over my “own” body instead of Bjj, mma etc where I need to go close contact with the bodies. In the thaiboxing it´s not the same bodycontact so it works good for my back.
But. Of course my back is extra sensitive sometimes and get pain anyway. So then it is only to take it easy, to rehab, take walks and rest when needed. Yesterday it was a really sunny and nice weather here in Norway where I am right now.
So Tiago, my fiancé, gaved me some Pt-training outside. That was really nice. Today it´s raining so I will stay home and work. But with chocolate, coffee and nice animals running around outside it is a good day anyway. 😉
So yesterday Tiago had his first BJJ (brazilian jiu jitsu) class here at Kamphuset in Norway. And they seem to LOVE it! My backinjury is still hurts sometimes so no gi for me. Mostly it is the floor/groundwork (like Bjj and submission wrestling) that is hurting extra for me to do if I’m not having attention. But there is movements that works good so mostly I helped T to be his “assistant”.
The place here is so big- over 1000 square meter for gym and martial arts! Awesome! Now we are eating waffles and will relax before the Bjj tonight.
Bye Sweden. Now we goes to Norway! It’s fun- the last 3 (?) weeks we’ve been in 3 different countries; Portugal, Sweden and now today Norway. And to travel like this with my love, Tiago, is amazing!
We joke and call ourselves for the “gypsy couple“; We’re always on our way somewhere and with bags on our backs. Hehe. In Norway we will be training (mma, bjj, sw, boxing, kickboxing etc) and enjoying the nature. It will be great. I will keep you updated with pictures when I am at the hotel with internet!
