Well, back again...after all the "Painting Waza" I did over the weekend (not to mention earlier in the week and then again this afternoon), I'm surprised that I'm in as good a condition as I am. Just some minor stiffness in the shoulders, but that's nothing new. I'm just happy to have tomorrow off from work --- it certainly didn't feel like I had a weekend at all!

It was a relatively small class tonight (where the heck was everybody anyway?!): just me, Ken, Sensei, and Sempai Jeremy. Jeremy commented that perhaps we were getting a wind from the South, because the dojo was freezing again. Luckily this doesn't happen often, but when it does --- man, is it ever cold. Of course, the washrooms down the hall, (particularly the Ladies', where I change initially) on the other hand, are --- no word of a lie --- as hot as saunas!

So to keep warm, we did our Bokken drills back and forth across the room instead of standing still and even did a bit of rolling afterwards (thank-youthank-youthank-you). All the bumps and bruises from Tae Sabaki also helped distract from the cold rather well.

Off to soak my aches in a nice warm tub now...
