BjjBrick Q&A 4 Long Distance Running and BJJ

In BjjBrick Q&A question 4 we have a question from Jay. Jay wants a little help combining running with BJJ. Currently he is feeling very fatigued by his exercise schedule. Jay has a goal of running a half marathon and he is fairly new to BJJ.

This is the article about my marathon that Jay referenced in his question. 

Keep sending in questions and I will do my best with my answers my friends.

Quote of the week: “Iron sharpens iron. So that one man sharpens another. I think that it is very true. If you are not in a training environment where you are getting smacked in the head, you are getting tapped out, you are getting challenged on a daily basis, then you are not getting any better. You’re not improving. Your workout partners are a very important piece of your progression as an athlete and the character that you are building as a person as well. Those are key components and finding that right place is a piece of it.”
Randy Couture “Wrestling For Fighting”
