Well, by Thursday morning, I was pretty much not very sore at all. So, I did end up going to practice tonight. I really enjoyed it, but I must confess a bit of apprehension or something before actually getting my butt into the car and driving to the dojo. I think maybe it was embarassment for being such a newb, but I know that's a foolish thought. So I banished it as well as I could and proceeded on to practice.

I'm glad that I did. Tonight I was pinned for the very first time in my life and I learned a little bit about wrist locks. It was fun and frightening at the same time. Fortunately sensei paired me up with very nice and patient sempai.

Leaving Aikido I felt energized and refreshed. I'm ready to hit the mats again on Sunday morning!

As for soreness, I read in several places to get a homeopathic (naturopathic?) rubbing oil for soreness with arnica(?) and to rub that into sore spots after taking a hot shower. Did both tonight after practice. We'll see if that helps at all tommorow morning.
Konban wa!

UPDATE - NEXT DAY: I'm not very sore at all! Just a bit on my upper legs. However, I think I pulled a muscle in my lower abdomen. I think I did my first roll very incorrectly. It hurts when it gets stretched. If the pain doesn't diminish this weekend, I'll probably need to see a doctor.
