'bout 10 years ago, I trained for about a year - then just stopped. I've always had an intention towards heading back to training, but I've always had a valid reason for not. Valid enough to make me feel justified.
Now, I've returned.
I've got my third training session tonight - and I'm already looking forward to it (despite the fact that the bumps and bruises are still present from the last one).
I'm training at Aikido Shinryukan Wellington
Outside of Aikido, I work in IT (Linux geek), I write in weblogs - my personal one
and my gadgets weblog
. Days I'm not training Aikido, I head to the gym - focusing on cardio and light weights, trying to get a bit smaller.
I live with my wonderfully encouraging fiance, and two cute but demanding kittens.
