16th practice last night - it was my first hour and a half class since I've been back from my ankle injury. My ankle did get weak towards the end of class, but it held up well. I didn't get any pain in it, though it still feels a little weak this morning. For most of the class I did pretty well, and Sensei had some time to spend working just with me, which was very helpful.
The bad thing that happened last night though, was when I did my first front roll, I landed really hard on my hip. It's sore as hell, though I don't think I hurt it badly - it just hurts. I really need to work on front rolls - it's the main thing that I really feel uncomfortable with in Aikido.
