Well, I was back on the mat again after an enforced 2 week layoff due to tendonitis in my shoulders. Here's hoping that I don't get a re-occurance. The left side was bad enough I almost went to the emergency room. It had me really down for a while, I missed training, and I wasn't sure what to do about all these stupid joint issues (knees, shoulders, what's next?). Enough whining.
After a layoff, I often feel pretty good about getting back in the mix, and last night was no exception. Jui waza for the last part of class and afterward felt pretty good, but I blocked on different waza during class time...so I trained some of the ones I wished I had done before. They worked well...surprised it was so hard to do them during class.
I need to stop diddling about and get in a full yoga class, at least once a week, and do portions of a routine every day. If I'm going to keep training, it's time to step up and take care of the bod.
