First Soccer Practice.... Sprained Ankle :(

Given today was 50 F as reported by Snowy, I decided that I would attend practice since after all the lobsters and food and all, it was time for some exercise.

So the start of the practice was great.  I felt in good shape - wasn't tired, ball had some power, reasonably accurate.  And also after looking at some ball kicking videos last night for refreshers, figure I practice it a bit.  So for the first 15 to 30 minutes, I was working hard!

But second drill in, my old body kicks in, right ankle went crack crack... ouch!  Luckily it wasn't a big sprain as after resting a bit, I was able to jog slightly.  So I wrapped the leg up tighter and continued to play at half strength.  Did end up scoring a few goals and passing a few people.  Good enough today I guess.

Perhaps in these next 2 months I should just focus on strengthening my ankles instead of playing.. but then again, who am I kidding... hahaha

Cinerama Fun and Seeing some Old Friends

Went to Cinermama today to see the Hobbit.  Newly renovated and had some delicious chocolate popcorn (it does taste pretty good).  The 3D effect and higher frame rate is pretty cool.  No dizziness, just really good overall.  Definitely worth paying for!

After that, took an Uber to Still Liquor to crash an old friend's bday party.  Boy was she surprised (as a bunch of others) to see me.  Thinking now, I have basically vanished for like a year... lol.  Super fun times - I need to find some time to go volunteering so we can hang out more!
