In General No Pain, No Gain Tally (for the Week of July 21-25 Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Pains:
- Mostly aching in the: shoulders, mid-back, thighs, and inner arms

Gains:
- Added flexibility! I'm sure the guys in my dojo would love to smack me silly over this, since I'm pretty darn flexible already, but: as of a few weeks ago, I noticed that I can now stretch forward and down towards each leg from a seated position and touch my forehead to my knee --- and hold it there. Yay! I haven't been able to do that since I was 10.
- Finding myself remembering more details about the techniques we practice, and being able to write them down (hopefully in a somewhat coherent fashion) while going over what we did in my mind --- very useful!

And last but not least:
- Water has never tasted so good before.
