Ozeki Kotomitsuki seems to have gotten over his gallstone pains and has
started serious training for Kyushu. His shisho is planning to go easy
on him this basho, but Mickey has started training with the young guys
of the heya and did some serious butsugari with them yesterday. "I'm
planning on upping my pace from today", he said. At the beginning of
the month he suffered excruciating pain in his stomach area. "I
couldn't sleep at all..", he said. He sat out all of the actual Aki
jungyo, and when he was around he only did the dohyo-iri. As one of the
Kyokai's "banner" rikishi, he felt it was his duty to do what he could.
But not being able to do any keiko caused his physical state to weaken.
"I haven't weighed myself, but my muscle mass is down..", he said,
clutching his abdomen area.
"lent his chest" to the young guys of the heya for 15 bouts and stopped
at that. "No pain during keiko", he declared. He doesn't really know
when the stones will start acting up again. "He seems to be OK at the
moment. If he starts hurting again we'll send him off to the hospital
ASAP. He hasn't done much keiko so far and he is getting impatient..",
said Sadogatake Oyakata. "I'm being careful with food. I'm staying away
from greasy stuff..", added Kotomitsuki.
Rohou and Baruto were
expected to come for degeiko today, and Kotooushuu and Kotoshougiku
planned to be ready to meet them, in any case. "I'm not in great shape
yet, but I'll just take it slowly and see if I'm up to challenging the
sekitori as well..", said Mickey, looking forward optimistically.
