January 20, 2005, Out of Sync

At ladies class last night two new people joined. Friends of mine. Long manicured nails, jewelry. I thought, "This is going to be interesting." They both did really well for their first time out and seemed very enthused afterwards. So hopefully they'll continue.

One of them commented on how her abs got a good workout. "Anything that's good for my abs is a friend of mine."

I was thinking about how our instructor, our only female shodan, has a great teaching demeanor. Very approachable and relaxed. I would be the opposite. Like a drill sergeant, I guess.

I hadn't taken any ukemi as I was out sick for two weeks. And boy, could I ever feel it. I was a bit tense and out of sync with our instructor. I was wondering what she was going to do instead of just going with it.

I disclosed to her after class that I was a bit relieved that there were new people in the class, because then she would cover basics and not toss me around too much. However, because there were new people she demonstrated to them what was possible to do with aikido.

I'm glad to be back training even though my cough is lingering a bit. Hope to be back in the swing of things next week.
