My return to Aikido was an important day for me. Having got myself somewhat unfit over the last 2 years (archery is great, but it isn't aerobic exercise ) I wasn't sure I'd survive a 2 hour Aikido class...
Fortunately, my body remembered what to do I actually surprised myself at how much ukemi I could still take My technique as tori wasn't the best, and I kept falling over my hakama (didn't tie it on tight enough ) but I thoroughly enjoyed myself, worked with some great partners, and best of all managed to train throughout the whole class
Next morning I was aching so much I could scarcely stagger around, and this feeling didn't wear off until Monday
Ho hum. My goal for the next class is to ache for only 1 day afterwards...
