On the Lighter Side: Training Log: Nov 28: wherein we spit stitches out of our mouth at Taekwondo, we are just that tough.
Why am I posting at 1:43 in the morning? For two reasons, I can't sleep, first because I was deciding weather or not it was worth it to insist on keeping my posts up at the risk of hurting people I value, and second, because I feel like I got hit in the face with a baseball bat and I have no more Percocet. Sadness.
The day before yesterday, I had an implant screw removed from my jaw with a miniature impact wrench, and then they screwed in a bigger one. No general for this one, and YES, the Novocaine had all worn off by the time it was time to stitch me up. So I got live action stitching. How bad can it be? I have body piercing, it can't suck that much. WRONG-O!! OWIE!
Anyhow, I spent most of yesterday in bed because of no sleep the night before due to crazy spinny Percocet dreams and a throbbing mouth. Tonight, I went back to class, which was GREAT, we did some specific drill progressions, and then applied them to kicks.
We did front kicks, followed by roundhouse kicks on each side down the mat, and the "big kids" got to do tripple kicks, which look formidable indeed. We got a spiffy lil ab workout at the end of class. I dig it. I love it. I want more of it.
Okay. But the CROWNING moment was in the middle of going down the line when I felt my mouth throbbing and a stitch snapped. Yummy. I took a quick rinse in the drinking fountain and got on with it. Go team!
Came home and did 20 min or so on the balance board after putting the kids to bed. But now I am paying for it, my mouth is swollen, my remaining stitches are cutting into my healing gum, and i am out of drugs! Crud.
I am sure it will be better tomorrow, and stay tuned, because MY MOM is going to go to TKD with me tomorrow night! Yeah!
