In General The Past Week's No Pain, No Gain Tally Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Pains:
- Very minor Yonkyo bruises (we only did Yonkyo once Friday night, so these don't even come close to the all-over-the-arm bruising I'd normally get from Yonkyo-marathon nights). Nothing that a little Arnica Cream can't handle.
- Not that this is really much of a pain, but ever since I went for a trim, my hair keeps falling into my face annoyingly during training. This can't be helped, since I'm planning to grow it out really long (past my waist) and then get it all chopped off to donate for the making of Chemo wigs for kids with Cancer (in the meantime, I'm thinking of collecting pledges from friends and family to donate to Cancer Care Manitoba). I guess when it gets unbearably long, I'll just have to put it into a Pat Hendricks-like braid, and then when I finally donate it all, maybe I'll get them to give me a Mary Heiny-esque short cut. Or maybe I'll shave it all off and freak out the guys at the dojo.
- Wow...I guess that's it! No big surprise, since I was only in town for two classes this week.
- Oh yeah --- one more pain: I could only attend two classes this week.

Gains:
- Insights from a very interesting book on strategy
- Awareness: both about being relaxed, and about timing
- The knowledge that: less ukemi practice = more dizziness. Lesson: practice ukemi whenever possible!
- Some fairly prolific Aikido journal writing
- Just finished downloading some more Aikido videos, this time of O Sensei, Saito, Mary Heiny and Gozo Shioda...off to watch them now!
