Ship’s Log–September 29th


My legs are almost to the point where they don’t hurt anymore, almost, so I decided to take a class this evening. I cut it off at one, fearing that I was not yet recovered enough to push through two.

My training for the next few weeks promises to be more sporadic than I would like, but it is out of my control. My work load is picking up, and that means more nights out at hearings rather than at the dojo. It also means more late nights where I’ll be schlepping home tired and peckish, and I’m at risk of overdoing it with the snacks and late night beers. It’s time to develop a better coping mechanism to help me unwind and fall asleep after a stressful night out. I’m open to suggestions!
