Aiki-Log -- Class #6
Thursday, August 19, 2004 -- 7:30pm
I'm not sure what happened, but I woke up completely exhausted. Not physically, but mentally. I couldn't get out of bed, I fought to stay awake behind the wheel on the way to work, I couldn't concentrate. I haven't felt that weird since I had mono about 25 years go.
During the day I did notice that my calves were very sore. I mentioned how much better I liked moving on a wooden floor than on mats. But one outcome of being better able to move on the balls of my feet is that my calves got a huge workout. Something to think about.
I reluctantly decided to skip class and get some sleep. I crashed out when I got home and woke up 4 hours later, watched some of the Olympics and went back to bed an hour and a half later. After a full night's sleep I felt much better.
I practiced on Sunday to review what I learned, but I'm looking forward to Wednesday. Looks like I should pick up some more Dramamine. I might actually be able to see if it works.
