Day 58: I Am Tougher than my Pinky Toe
Tonight, I didn't hold back much at all. I went in early, worked on the longstick form for a while, did a solid hour of kickboxing, and took another hour of class, which included an intense warm-up and a "mock test" at the end.
After class, I worked for at least another hour with the longstick and sword. Both jumps are back in the longstick form. The landings hurt a bit, but once the adrenaline is pumping, it's hardly noticable.
I'll take some Advil and ice it a bit before bed.
Grateful tonight for a wise and patient Master, for good friends and a supportive dojang.
Grateful also for a strong body and spirit, both of which grow stronger with every challenge.
Finally, I'm grateful for my wonderful family, who support me in all that I do, even on weeks like this when I'm away a lot and am particularly focused on my own goals. They really are the best.
Off to find the ice and Advil. I'm ready for some downtime.
