I untaped my toe today to look at it. It looks SO much better! Phew!
It feels a bit better too, but take downs are still a pretty big concern. I suck at them anyway, so throwing a jacked up toe in the mix isn't ideal. Ben did show us one last night that I think I can pull off. It's sort of like pulling someone in to butterfly guard, but one hook in, one leg out, and you take the back instead. You wouldn't get points for it, but it is safe for my foot and if I screw it up, I land with them in my guard or butterfly guard, and I am comfortable with either one of those out comes.
Then again, I could always just do my default take down - panic during the clench and jump guard. That seems to be my thing. lol
Oh! And I am two pounds from lightweight. I know I can take that off in the next two days, or I could just dehydrate a little... but either way, I feel like I am in the clear weight wise.
Tonight is my last class before NAGA. My instructors think it is wise to let your body rest for two days before a competition so that is what I will do, but I am going to train as hard as my foot will let me tonight.
