My return on the mat was painful. Last thursday, I rolled on my rib cage and heard a "crack" Monday, I had severe pain breathing and I did an X-Ray. No broken rib but still severe pain (muscle pain?). I'm on medication since then. Really disturbing but it's the pain or the dizziness. in either way, I will not be able to continue Aikido for the following weeks but with medication, I'm no longer in pain. I'm glad my wife is retired from work due to pregnancy, she can drive me to work and pick me up at the end of the day since I'm probably a driving hazard.
I hope to be back on the mat before end of october but even with the best will in the world, my health is my first consideration.
