So last night was fighting class, which was fine -- except for the part where I blocked a kick and hurt my wrist -- and then after class, when I was exhausted and drenched in sweat after 15 rounds, Shihan asked me, one of the black belts, and one of the yellow belts to stay behind. The other two are fighters -- the black belt goes to a lot of tournaments and the yellow belt is being groomed to do likewise -- and I'm training for my possible black belt, so we got to do some extra endurance stuff: five two-minute rounds of jumping rope, with 20 pushups and 20 crunches after each of those rounds.

For fighting class, we can wear a t-shirt in lieu of a gi top (though it has to be one of the discipline's shirts sold by the dojo), and my shirt was completely soaked through by the end of that.

My plans to go running this morning were postponed by the need for more sleep. I'll go tomorrow morning....
