I certainly don't bounce back from 'em like I use to.
Yesterday we went to the annual Jersey Shore Rugby Tournament. It was about 95 degrees with 65 percent humidity. We were basically playing in a sauna. Additionally, I kind of tweaked by back on a series of plays.
Normally I would have bounced back from grueling conditions and minor injuries in no time. Usually by the car ride back I can be good to go tackle the next adventure (this was in high school when I was consuming nearly 5,000 calories a day). Those days have changed.
I went to bed last night at 11 PM and woke up at 9 AM with my back still sore. It wasn't the level it was yesterday, but still, it was sore.
Dude, what's going on? I am really getting that old? Bummer.
In other news, I've begun reading "A Clockwork Orange" by Anthony Burgess. I saw the movie and liked it so I'm trying the book on for size. This ultra-violence laden novella is interesting so far. There are a lot of made up words and slang that I am not quite sure, but can figure out through process of elimination. I'm only a few chapters in, so they haven't begun to experiment on Alex (the protagonist) yet, but based on the vivid descriptions and use of language, I'm looking forward to those chapters.
