In General This Week's No Pain, No Gain Tally Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #28 New 09-12-2003 11:08 PM
Pains:

- Really dark bruise (unusual for me) on my inner leg...probably from banging the insides of my knees together during tobu ukemi; thank goodness for Arnica cream
- Strained right calf earlier in the week (don't ask how, because I have no idea)
- Sore legs, mostly in the upper thighs --- guess I'd better get used to it!

Gains:

- A full week of classes --- yay!
- Feeling better while doing breakfalls; they're getting more comfortable (if that's at all possible)
- Being able to focus more on feeling one's partner, and what's behind my Aikido rather than simply the forms (which it has been very easy to get carried away with, as I'm a beginner)
- Finding the time to consider the concepts of leadership, awareness, perspective, and harmony in Aikido a little more
- Experiencing firsthand harmony in a technique from an uke's perspective

Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
