I just had my first pakua class since the Sunday before last. And while I got wiped fairly early on, the running and the crunches and situps, the intial movements, the punches (I led the punches) and the kicks, and then the attack and escape sparring - oh, it feels so very, very good. I got my heart up, I got my adrenaline pumping (I got in some good kicks and punches :)), I got my lungs working. I feel alive again.
This exercise stuff? It's an addiction. Which I knew, but now I *know*.
