Ache All Over

Been having some great classes lately. Come to think of it, there has been a lot of line work lately for the most part which is fun. Although Mulligan had us doing wakagatami for large part of Friday nights class. Not a line technique to be sure but it was good. I needed the practice for that one. Why am I aching all over? Was it this mornings class with a good amount of koshinage? Nah.... It's from going over someone's new house to help with some home improvement projects. My body isn't used to standing on a concrete floor for hours on end making unfamiliar movements for most of the day.

You're aching 'cause you're getting OLD my friend :)
Yes, waki gatame shouldn't make you achy, but using unused muscles repeatedly will definately do it.
That's why even though WE don't think Aikido is stressful, if a runner or swimmer who's in great shape takes a class with us, THEY think it's a real workout.
Cheer up, maybe someday you can retire, like me !
