I started off the day with a (5.0)mi. run/walk at about an (18:22) pace. I spent a little more time in the sun than expected, and have a touch of burn for it. :-/
|A nice day for a run in the park.|
Later, I went to my Self-Defence class. Combatives is still awesome, but today was a light-weight day: Flow Exercises to practice footwork and deflecting your opponent, rather than the usual high-speed attack sessions. No bruises today. Woo-HOO!
