I did some stretching and decided to leave the pushups for home. My arms were considerably worked out. I did some candle begi at home earlier in the week, something I hadn’t done for a while since I stopped taking gumdo class (I’ve just been too busy, and the gumdo horse stance aggravates my previous knee injury). Glad to say that I was able to snuff out one candle, then two. 😀 I will have to do candle begi every so often. It is remarkably good for helping me to calm my mind.
