Got paired with someone taking their first boxing class and when she got tuckered out, Lee held the Thai pads for me.
Did I mention how I love it when Lee is on the other side of Thai pads?
I know that Lee won't teeter or weeble wobble.
I kicked like someone had made me very angry. I kicked as if my life depended on it and I kicked like I was in a contest. It felt right and rhythmical.
After sparring, we shadowboxed and jumped rope. My left calf was like I thought we agreed not to do this anymore.
Lee says that he's been taking pumpkin seed oil and he hasn't been bothered with calf cramps since.
As I left, Lee told me that my hip rotation and kicks are much better. It'll only be a matter of time before your hips open up. Ah, the things that a boxing instructor says...
I limped out of class and headed to yoga hoping to work out the kink in my calf.
