A Good Day
I am happy to report that mom ran twenty minutes in her candidate class today without incident. She slowed her pace down, took smaller steps and made a conscious effort to relax. She also put her water bottle in her gi top so whenever she needed a sip she had it at hand. She also brought her own stop watch and didn't muck it up twice (like she did the last time.) She was very happy that she didn't over heat either.
Then she went on to be completely silly and took the class after as well. I think that qualified her for being completely off her rocker, but she was laughing at herself so it was okay.
Memere asked mom if she thought that perhaps first degree black was as far as she should go. Mom's response.... NO! Mom may consider slowing down at 3rd degree black. By then, she should be 50. But we'll see. With the physical therapy, her shoulder is feeling good and as long as mom doesn't have to be the fastest or strongest, she's not stopping.
