I Hurt Where Long Forgotten

Well, I'm on day two past the parent/child soccer game and I still hurt in places I have long forgotten. I like to believe I stay active and I'm not in horrible shape by any stretch of the word but playing 1.5 hours of soccer kicked my behind.

I think I said in the last post that I intended to "throw" the game. Well, we get there and the coach indicates that he wants to make the kids try to learn teamwork. Therefore, he wanted us to actually play so that the only way they could win was to work together as a team and not do the "swarming" that they tend to do. Well, we were outnumbered at least 2 kids to each adult and we ended up winning 10-0. Ten goals when you are trying to show them proper teamwork is not a quiet affair. In the end, we had a great time and I think everyone enjoyed themselves.

After the fact... I haven't used most of the muscles that hurt in this way for at least 10 and probably more like 15 years. I loved pushing myself but man I am paying the price now. Anyway, wanted to give you an update on the game. *Huggles*

  1. Awww you're a soccer Mom. Sounds like it was a fun time.

    Sorry I'm not on here like I use to be. I'm still so busy all the time with the house and work. I find it hard to keep up with my two main blogs besides the few others I have.

    Hope you are feeling better. *huggles*
