Why Am I Sore?

I woke up feeling sore this morning. I couldn’t figure out why. Although Asali and I are doing longer rides than we normally do, my legs are pretty fit for riding. And yesterday, I did not dismount and walk for very long on our ride. We did approximately 9 miles, averaging a speed around 4.5 mph, so this was not a challenging ride.

Then it occurred to me… it must have been the 20 minutes of basketball I played with Jakob last night. I played defense and he had me chasing him all over that court! I haven’t played basketball since seventh grade. Yes, it’s true, I was beaten by an eight year old last night. Note to self: Don’t play sports with children when you are out of shape. I definitely need to incorporate more cardio into my workouts!

After endurance training with Asali, my little basketball player joined me for a trail ride.

    Yea, and after Gary ruptured tendons in his left ankle from playing basketball with Jakob’s team, I am staying far away from that court and those eight-year-olds. YIKES!
