I guess a first injury warrants a post on a personal development log...
It's not a serious injury, but it could've been, and i still feel it's some sort of a milestone.
So on monday. 10 minutes before the end of class we were doing jyuwaza, focusing on morotedori. we were doing a threesome (hehe) with the instructor. on his turn he asked us to "constantly attack" which basically means for us beginners is to get up as fast as we can and rush at him.
I rushed aiming at his right side and he responded with an ikkyo (i think) into my left elbow. I guess I kept my left hand straight because somehow my elbow stretched backwards and i felt a sharp pain.

i think i lightly sprained my elbow - it's not swollen, it's just uncomfortable when i try to keep my arm straight. So I decided to give it a few days rest and see if it improves.

I think rushing + carelesness was the cause of this injury. I could've prevented it by attacking with more care and responding better to the technique which I didn't expect. The instructor warned us plenty of times against keeping a straight but I guess sometimes wanting to keep up comes at the expense of staying safe.
