I went on vacation to the mid-west for two weeks with the wife. However just before I left my hip starting acting up. The pain never cleared and I finally went and saw the doctor a few days ago. Apparently I’ve got a pinched or enflamed sciatic nerve that makes it very difficult to bend over. I’ve got to go to PT for a bit and stop stretching. Apparently that was making it worse.
Work has decided to send me over the big city for some extra work and training. While I’m there I can attend the Aikido School for two weeks fairly regularly. Can’t wait. I had visited a few years ago for two days and loved every bit of it. This time I’ll remember to wear my white belt and try not to look like a dork trying to remember the ceremonial steps.
