Well… I haven’t really been able to track much running or cycling lately. Haven’t been to the gym in forever either. I have, however, been playing soccer this summer… first time in a couple of years.
And soccer, let me tell you, is an exhausting activity. An activity that has been taxing my body like a… well, a lot.
(I can’t think a proper way to describe it that doesn’t involve at least one swear word so, we’ll leave it at that.)
The first two weeks back my team played five games in a little over a week and a half. My initial contribution was a whopping two ten-minute shifts in a ninety minute game: serious 22% contribution.
For the next two days I hobbled around like someone had beaten me with pitching wedge. And it only lasted for two days because I had to suit up for my next game and do it all over again.
A few weeks later I am just as exhausted, however, I can play the full ninety minutes before I get there. Feels good.
Gotta find a life rhythm for it all though… one that lets me do everything I want but doesn’t leave me exhausted. Is there any such thing?
Fill me in if anyone knows.
