I'm giddy as a kid at Christmas, all because I was able to go through two sets of Tai-Gi (Sp) as uke, and even though I was winded, I wasn't wheezing winded, and I recovered quickly. I think alot of this has to do with paying attention to my breathing with rolling and falling. (not holding my breath)
I think I'm going to take advantage of this by starting to do a little jogging in the morning when I get home from work. Not much! Just enough to get a little huff and blood going, then follow up with some stretching before I go to bed. I'm going to try keep the whole routine under a half an hour as to not bite into my sleep too much.
