urghhhhh ... today got very hot and sweaty and still had me clothes on! ... yeayyyyyy breakfall training! Hurrahhh ...
I have bruises in places that I'd either forgotton / didnt know actually existed! .... Im not a small girl me ... (well Im short ... but a little on the obeise side of healthy!) .... and I got given the opportunity to throw myself around the mats.
So after a few false starts and a bit of cheating (ie rolly polly with both hands) I was actually getting the hang of it .... up until I tried breakfalling from an actual throw! ... BUT in all fairness sensei was getting a little carried away (in my opinion .. anyway) ... and was full on throwing me ... then Id do soming daft like land on me head .... and be back to square one throwing my self around the mats! ... (then mall music would kick in ..) and Id find sensei grabbing my wrist and Id be falling inelegantly baxk towards the mats ... curse my blue colouring! hes (sensei) telling me that hes going to get t-shirts printed saying things like "Ive done it with dory!" ... and "dorys dojo" ... I give up I tell u ! ... nahhhh am addicted ... totally ...
weell thats all for today my luvvers! ... take ye care
