Hoops !!

Posted May 13 2008 9:30am 5 Comments

Ready to go shoot hoops at my local outdoor court !

It's been 17 months since I did any exercise.

( Medical treatments......... )

So, the ball will soon be "singing"!!!

I actually walked to the park and shot hoops!!

I didn't make the 30 min goal--but, 15 ain't bad for a body that's been devastated by medical drugs!

My Game (alone) is to shoot and if I make it, saunter up to the ball and breathe.

If I miss, get to the ball ask fast as possible and shot from where you end up.

I got nowhere near the steady dance that I used to do. In fact, on my first attempt to secure a rebound, I pivoted as the ball shot past, felt my left leg muscles protest, willed myself to not fall, and fell, Hard. Asphalt scrapes on a knew and hands...

The walk back (15 min and, ahem, uphill) helped me walk off a cramped left calf.

I did it!


thats the spirit

Thanks for the encouragement Martin.

I was "ready", had to pull back for a bit though.

Still recovering from eleven months of strong and abusive medical drug therapy.

Nervous system still not communicating well with the muscles . . .

You can do it! Always think like you know each shot will go in! And keep shooting!
Soon will be going back to the courts. Strength is better and nervous system seems to be behaving...
