Back in the Saddle - a rare Friday treat.

So as it turns out, my numbness was a temporary condition, and my doctor even encouraged me to exercise, so I went back to Judo today. I usually don't go on Fridays. You see, I am an Orthodox Jew, and I need to leave work early on Fridays during 'Standard' time to make it home in time for sunset and the onset of the Sabbath.

But I needed to get out there, I am going to miss a couple more days in another week because of Passover, so I figured that I would get it all in while I can now.

Unfortunatley, I had to limit myself to 45 minutes down from my usual 1:45. All I got to do was warm-up, rollouts, and about 50-70 uchikomis. Thankfully the time off has given my right wrist more time to heal and I hit some nice Harai Goshi pickups. I am also thankful that I got to work with a realtively light uke as well - just so I could take it easy.

Monday, I am going to go back full throttle. I missed Judo. I still plan on competing on 5/22, so it's time to gear up.
