Last week Wednesday saw me hitting a few balls with my friend Jan Westenraad at Adelaars Squash Club and I enjoyed it. I was not as sore as I thought I would be. I went for a knock with the "Old Boys Club" on Sunday afternoon. Not much changed about who pitches and plays on Sunday afternoons in 3 years... Again the body held up well and it was only a severe lack of anaerobic fitness and serious immobility that hampered my game. But the enjoyment was there! Last night I played a game with Willem and after the hour we sat down and cooled down a bit. When I got up there was something serious wrong inside my right bum. I battled to walk and looked like an invalid the way I limped to my car. I could barely walk from the garage to the house.
This morning was a struggle to walk the 80 meters to the office and I am sitting where I sit. It is really sore. I hope it is just a little tear and it will heal quickly. Fortunately today is a scheduled rest day so I will see how it goes tomorrow on the bike. A minor setback, but I will bounce back.
