I went to play badminton today, and it was awful. my feet were full of lead and it was like I was in s.l.o.w.m.o.t.i.o.n all the time. my friend (and coach) says it may have to do with playing low-level people and not being used to the speed of the bird anymore, but–it’s just that whenever a shot is popped up to the other side and it’s an easy smash, I used to own the court, ready to take it on. now I cringe and am afraid of getting smashed at. argh.
playing tennis might not be helping either, I was whiffing a lot of shots.
my other tendon is starting to hurt now too. paranoia, or just age? (yes)
it’s going to take a lot of work to get back to a level that I can respect myself for.
