I went to class on Saturday, even though I wasn't feeling 100%. I'd been having stomach troubles all week, and I'd strained my back the previous Tuesday working on my house. I found that my back held up pretty well unless I needed to arch it for ukemi. It's feeling better and better as time progresses.
However, my stomach trouble caused me to throw up a little bit about an hour into training. That's the first time in nearly five years of training that such a thing has happened to me! I've gotten a bit nauseated from time to time during periods of high exersion and/or high heat, but I've never thrown up. My instructor wasn't feeling well either, so I guess there's something going around.
Oh well, the throwing and falling felt pretty good until I got to feeling sick. I'll train again tonight and see how things go.
