Note to Self: Exercise Can Cause Pain

Scott William Carter   February 2, 2010  

Note to Self: When you haven’t played five-on-five basketball in, oh, at least ten years, it’s probably not a good idea to go a good two hours doing so in a misguided attempt to prove that you are still as fit as you never really were. You’ll realize the truth of this in the morning when you experience pain in muscles you never knew you had.

Note to Self #2: Actually exercising once in a while (and no, moving a computer mouse doesn’t count) in preparation for playing five-on-five basketball could lessen the pain you feel the next morning.

Note to Self #3: This will be repeated the next time you play basketball — and every time hereafter — unless you heed Note #2.
