I haven’t played in years. A decade maybe. Finally, after nearly six months of trying to make plans to play, Charmain and I found ourselves at Tampines Safra (and it was only due to Palex’s generosity in helping secure the court that we could play).
Awesome fun. I haven’t perspired like that in a while. I guess swimming, climbing, and walking the dog does not really count as cardio, because just after 20 minutes of badminton, I was dripping wet. My stamina was pathetic – we must have been radically optimistic that we could play uninterrupted for 2 hours, for we had to stop and rest after every 20 minutes or so, and bowed out with more than a half hour to go. Still, I was happily surprised to see that I haven’t lost my ball sense, and could volley back shots quite comfortably.
My calves and arms are even aching a little today! Hehe, but it could also be the twin combination of both climbing and badminton in a day.
So, all in all, a fun weekend, despite being holed up at home working on a project the entire day Saturday (and for the record, I have quite a few people to properly thank for their support and help, no matter what the outcome turns out to be!).
