We finally started really getting into tai chi tonight, five weeks after classes started. I think it's actually quite legitimate to spend four weeks on warm up exercises--once up on a time, people probably spent months doing warm ups before they began the actual routine--but one tends to get impatient when it's only an eight week class. We've now done four of 108 movements, which is very exciting.

Also exciting was me passing out in the middle of the class. Well, actually, it was near the beginning. I hit my chin pretty hard on the floor. It's looking kinda lopsided now, and I suspect it will be worse in the morning. Painful, too. I think the root cause of the passing out was dehydration. I did some cardio before the class, and probably didn't drink enough water afterwards. Plus, on the previous occasion this happened, the doctors told me that it was dehydration. This gives me confidence in my decision not to go to the doctor this time. I may, however, start taking my water bottle into the gym instead of leaving it at my locker.
