Training was uneventful except for today which is why this entry is titled “day 51-62”. Remember that weird sensation I described on day 47? It happened again. It grew stronger faster this time. It felt like my arms were submerged in water and waves were pouring over them. It continued to get stronger as I continued to do qigong. It didn’t hurt at all, but it was getting very, very strong, almost to the point where I was about to start getting worried and maybe stop the qigong.
Again, I’m a skeptic. This could’ve just been a sensation from increased blood flow expanding the blood vessels or something. Or maybe the position I had my arms in was causing some weird feedback or something. I’m not so sure I was feeling increased qi or anything but I see why, if older, less-scientific generations of martial artists had experienced this, they may have thought it was some sort of energy. I’m still trying to keep my mind open, however.
The training is going well. My hands are feeling good. No stiffness, no soreness, and I still have that increased awareness type of feeling I was trying to describe earlier.
