Today was our monthly shugro (Japanese for "a can of whupass is about to be opened upon you") day. NO other students showed up. Now I know why. Bad. Very bad. Just me and Sensei. All her energy was focused on making sure I'd have to be carried out. Came damn close. At one point I was sprawled on ground, hollering "Keep going! I'm right behind you!"
Am traumatized. Know I will not be moving any body part tomorrow so will check in later.
Bad. Very bad.
(However, once I can move again I'm TOTALLY going to start doing these moves at home. I will soon be in ass-kicking shape myself because seriously, this workout was INTENSE.)
BTW--I just found out that at my first promotion (hopefully) ceremony at the beginning of October (and at every one after that), I have to break a board. Luckily, this one involves my foot/leg instead of hand/arm (although of course, that's coming, too)--and also luckily, my legs are freakishly strong from 4 years of fitness walking. Still, this should make for a rousing game of Which Bone Will Jen Break Next?. Will it be something obvious, like a foot or ankle, or will I lose my balance, fall over, and rebreak my elbow or another upper appendage?
