I pretty much do what Don said for my Shootfighting training. Sometimes it sucks for my fight training, but you just learn to deal with it.

aka "Suck it up Buttercup"

The real key is to make sure that you get plenty of rest those days, eat right and don't be afraid to say "I am going to only do my BJJ class tonight" or "I am going to take tonight off". Just try not to let it happen too often (once every week would be too often).

I utilize contrast showers everyday as well. These seem to help my body 'cope' with the extra stress.

My problem isn't handling the extra workout, it is staying at the school and working out until 12:30 and not getting to bed until 2am (long drive). I don't get up until 7am usually but I get pretty wore out on this schedule and my training suffers.
