In General No Pain, No Gain Tally for the Week Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #6 New 07-11-2003 12:23 PM
Pains:
-sore inner elbows (from being the recipient of some hard blocks during tae sabaki)
-sore inner hips
-minor bruising
-some strangeness going on in my left knee (from an especially hard tobu ukemi)
-straining in my left shoulder

Gains:
-feeling of oneness and flow with bokken
-good tae sabaki back-to-back evasion/randori-like runs
-actually got through what felt like hundreds of reps doing strikes with a jo longer and thicker than I am used to (grrr...feel the burn!)
-better knowledge about the sincerity of certain training partners, and the self-knowledge that I am sick of dojo politics/soap operas --- I just want to train!
