Well, I guess that is to be expected after 2 years off the ice. I laced up the skates and took part in a 10 minute pre-game warm up, complete with some hot rubber flying at me! My back was GREAT. It was a little tight as I started to work it a bit harder, but it was no worse for the wear afterward. The only thing that surprised me was how weak, slow and de-conditioned I was! I can walk, run and do core work until I’m blue in the face, but it is nothing compared to real sport. I’m a long way from playing a full competitive game, but I’m getting there.
I owe it all to Mr. Boeree. He was sure I’d make it back on the ice. I play again this weekend and will take some on ice shots.
You know the drill… “slow and steady wins the race!” 🙂
Glad to hear that you are returning back to the physical activities that are near and dear to your heart. With some good fortune, your health will continue to improve, and in the near future, you will look back on your time of pain as something that happened a long, long time ago!
Thanks, David. Slow and steady indeed!
