While out of class with my slowly healing ankle injury, I'm now able to enjoy Aikido vicariously through my wife. She started this past Sunday and is having fun. Of course, after Sunday's and Tuesday's classes she was way too sore to go to class last night, but we should be able to go again on Sunday. She's really enjoying class and the other women in class are very grateful she's there. I have a buddy at work who's wife wants to join as well. Pretty soon we'll have a class full of girls. :O
My ankle is still getting better day by day, but I still expect to be out of practice until towards the end of September. I'm still bummed by that, but since I intend on taking Aikido for quite a long time, a month and a half isn't very long to wait - especially since I don't want to injure myself again anytime soon.
