Oh my goodness, I am SO nervous, but so excited. I watched my team compete at states last month, and it was so much fun! I can't wait, but I'm also petrified, haha. I got injured recently, so I was out of sparring for two weeks, so I'm pretty nervous. I did miss a lot of training time. But on the other hand, I'm taking my training up to six days a week, and for two hours a day three of those days...I just hope it's enough! (Sorry for the rant; I'm always excited to talk to you!)

Sorry for the late response =/ Not an issue in the slightest dear ^^ I enjoy hearing about life events. Please, rant away!

Aw, what kind of injury was it? It definitely sounds as if you’re making up for lost time very well though =) Would you have trained this frequently if you hadn’t been injured (just out of curiosity)?
