comment How to build up endurance when rolling?
@DaveLiepmann To be fair, many of the existing answers contributed to what was (for me) the answer. I wish I could mark a single answer as 'the' answer, but I'm hard pressed to choose. I can't really take credit for the answer because what I found out was that every answer submitted here was part of the solution to my problem.

comment How to build up endurance when rolling?
Number 3 is hard when my muscles are so fatigued I can barely grip a gi, or try to stand and break out of full guard. I'm eventually so tired I can't do anything but try to fend off submissions, which doesn't last too long when I'm gassed. When I'm not gassed I'm much better, but once I gas I'm pretty worthless.

I think you are right. This is what my instructor, and a few other guys I roll with told me. Since I don't know much technique right now, I tend to try to muscle out of situations when I don't know what else to do. I'm finding if I just stay calm, and think a bit more then I get gassed less. Also, if I can't think of a way to get out, or how to overcome my partner I'll just let them take advantage, and ask for technical guidance.
