Class last night was pretty good, but I got tired quick. Half way through class, I was so exhausted that everything Sensei said or did just went in one ear and out the other. People would encourage me to "just try it."
We worked on jujinage (sp?) and though I'm told I had the general movement down, I still need to work on the footwork and extension. I was too colapsed into me own space and my feet were too far apart.
In reflection, I see I'm exhausted, not sleeping well, staying up too late and need to change all that. Tonight, I am skipping class and hope to get to bed early. Waking up with headaches and bad dreams is not helping me or my marriage at all. I need rest!!
