OMG. Last night I got hurt at martial arts class. In one class, we can do over 100 kicks but my legs don’t hurt. Or 100 push-ups, but my arms don’t hurt. So what happened last night?
We were doing 360 degree spins with a backhand punch. All you do is stand in one spot, jump in the air, lift your hand to the opposite ear, lead with your head and spin your body so it comes back down where you started, and launch a punch.
Sounds easy, doesn’t it? That’s what I thought. I dare you to try it.
I did 16 of them. 15 were fine. #16, not so good.
I pulled a large stomach muscle. The room kept spinning after I landed. I decided to go for a drink and walked out of class. I saw spots, felt nauseous, and lost my footing. Fortunately I found the wall before I found the floor. I heard I went completely white.
Holy moly. Someone came and took care of me, got me into a prone position, put ice on my pulled muscle, and water on my forehead. Then they sat me up, and I went white again and they put me back down. I have never left class early before in all the years I’ve taken classes.
It was a rough night last night. Ice, heat, ice, heat, and advil. I thought I was doing okay today. Just walking a little gingerly…until someone made me laugh. Ouch.
I felt like this guy, but I sure hope I didn’t look like him.
