Hot and Sweaty.....

Last night I abandoned my family and my visitors without so much as a second thought and roared up to the hockey club for our first practice of the season. It was so absolutely fabulous to see everyone again, the fact that we started with 30 minutes of physical torture, the coaches called it fitness training, did not diminish my enjoyment one little bit! I even learned a neat trick on the best position to receive the ball and it actually made sense, plus I even DID it, now THAT is what I call progress. The 90 minutes flew by and when I got home I was on such a buzz that I did not have the best nights sleep ever, I awoke this morning expecting screaming muscles at the slightest movement and was enormously relieved when I did not even feel a tweak! This is changing as my glutinous maximus (spelling???) has made its presence felt on a few occasions this evening. Will I be doing it again next week? You betcha!

Don't you love that you love to exercise? Much more fun than hanging on the couch.... I think your 'Friday' song sometime soon should be a video clip of you in hockey action!!

It was just the other day you wrote about the end of your hockey season and now the new season is already starting - have fun! Our season comes to an end this weekend, but summer league resumes in a month (my favourite).
