My Workout Wears Me Out!

I am so toast after my surf contest yesterday.  I'm usually sore but this one really took it out of me.  I had to surf a board that wasn't mine in really small waves.  This means I'm basically paddling for my life.  To top it off, I was in a heat with all guys, half of which were teens.  Yeah, this old lady had a hard time keeping up but gave it her all!

The more competitions I enter, the better I get.  I think I'm going to work with a coach a bit to try to improve.  Back in the day I was so much better.  Age and injuries are taking their toll and I need some help.  No excuses, it just happens.

Thanks to ZJ Boarding House for the fun event yesterday!

You're awesome Apryl, always have been, and always will be. I totally get what you're saying about age and being highly active, I spent 7 hours between Saturday and Sunday riding hard at the skate park with my son. It's Tuesday morning and I'm still achy... but totally awesome!!!

I bet you are a lot better than you realize! Keep up the good work! That's awesome you were competing against guys in their teens!

Thanks Lindsay! I probably am, I need to stop being so self-deprecating! It was pretty interesting being in that heat. The guys didn't really know what to think. They ended up being stoked because I cheer for everyone when they get good waves. :)
