Re: Poll: How often do you train until the point of exhaustion in your aikido practice?

When I voted, I interpreted "exhausted" pretty literally and voted "never". I've been so thrashed on many occasions that I had very little left and once I had to run outside quickly and vomit. I admit to being worn out and so tired I wanted nothing more than to crawl off into a corner, but never so badly I didn't have one more fall or rep left in me. Sounds like symantics and not endurance as what many of you have described is what I've experienced too. Great, ain't it?
