Mmm, couldn't resist stopping for a milkshake on the way home...
Well, bro and sis were at a birthday party, so it was me, Josh, Chuck, Jeremy (Josh's brother), John, and sensei... Stretched to warm up (that is what stretching is for, last time I checked).
I'm strangely worn out today.
I had my tetnus (sp?) shot today, so my shoulder is a bit sore. Didn't slow me down, though...stretching got it into shape for rolls etc.
Kato Sensei, who I met last summer, will be coming to Houston and then down here to Corpus, but, alas, I will be gone the week he's here to a camp! Maybe I can work out going to Houston to train with him there, instead...because I can't miss camp (already paid 200 for it). Hmmm... Well, it's not like I'll be ready for testing, anyway.
We did some more shomenuchi irimi nage tonight. I was doing it with Josh and I kept throwing him quite hard (by my judgement), but he almost split my lip twice from not circling enough, so I guess we were even. Well, maybe not, because I ended up with my knee in his chest after he tried tripping me. Hehehe...
Maybe I was trying too hard to be cautious, or something, because after rolling around the mat twice, I was sore and dizzy...the dizzy is usual, but the sore is not. I need to relax. John told me I'm too high-strung when we were doing irimi nage and he asked how much caffine I'd had, so I told him I'd had one sip of my mom's coke and he said he'd be scared to see me after a whole one.
