Basketball

I ended up playing basketball with my brother and nephew yesterday. It was a cross training experience! I had forgotten just how much of a workout running back and forth is.

Remembering back to my high school volleyball days, running lines was the ultimate killer that just reduced me to a sweating heap. But, the torture induced by the coach really helped improve my stamina and agility.

My hamstrings and quads were quite sore from Friday’s training session. By Sunday afternoon, I was feeling much better, so basketball went quite well. I think my muscle efficiency wasn’t as good as it could have been, and maybe I still suck at the game, but it gave me another good point to measure my training by.
