I'm worn out tonight...

Started off with stretches, as usual. Then did some co-op stretches.

We did a lot of the waza where you katate dori and then tenkan and just toss them forward...did that for about twenty minutes striaght. That was fun...we sped it up gradually...sensei was throwing me fast.

Something clicked on my forward rolls tonight...I could feel some improvement in my left-led rolls, and my right-led rolls actually didn't hurt today! That's good! Okay, so, pain out of the way, now I need to work on form.

I think one thing was that I wasn't getting my elbow up high enough, so I was landing on my upper arm instead of rolling off my forearm. Now I need to keep my head in farther.

My back rolls got a bit better, too...I think because I was actually giving myself some momentum, and not fearing the roll.

I'm still thinking too much, though...I pause a lot to make sure I'm going the right direction. John said stop thinking, but I've gotta think until I get it down better.

Told sensei about what John said about hitting my feet with the jo...he thought that was funny.

I'm gonna go shower and eat a snack and go to bed...looking forward to Thursday!
