I'm playing again!

I found that there was indoor pickleball at the YMCA in Andover, about a 15 minute drive from us, so on Saturday I went to check it out.

There was a small amount of fear in playing again because the last time I tried it, it didn't feel so good and I needed to ice my shoulder afterwards.

So, you can imagine my surprise when I managed to stay and play for three hours...completely pain free.

Now, my legs were another story.  I felt fine at first, but all that lactic acid had built up in my muscle tissue and by the time we were out and about to grab some lunch and get groceries I was wobbling around like someone at a Dude ranch that just got off a long horseback ride.

That night I drank a bunch of water and took an Aleve about 9:00pm and went to bed.  In the morning things were fine again and no soreness anywhere, legs or shoulders.

It feels so good to be able to play again!


  1. You go, Girl! You are a pro at this! I am happy you found this place and a group of like-minded pickleball fanatics!

  2. good for you! i know you enjoy that so i'm glad you've found a place again.

  3. It's good that you are able to play and be active again. That photo you posted is gorgeous. Is this a place you've been able to investigate? The colors are just awesome.

    I'm at work and it's time to pack up to head on home. You have a wonderful day. Hugs, Edna B.

    1. It's an old mill near our campground in Wisconsin. I didn't discover it until our last day there.
