Y'all, my abs are killing me today!

Class last night was intense - definitely a great class, but intense. We broke into two groups and worked on building combinations. One group focused solely on hand techniques and the other group focused on kicks. Then we switched. Then Shihan Tracy called out random numbers and we worked out a combination of that many techniques. My brain was struggling to keep up.

I teased Gary that he was trying to keep me from my pushups with all those hand techniques. But I did my 28 pushups and then crawled to bed.

I've been pretty stiff all day today. Add that to the bruises on my forearms from sparring with Sensei-Hubby last week, and people are going to start thinking I am a battered wife.
