Anticipating Soreness: Soccer this Weekend

Throw In

If you've ever read "The Way to Happiness" by L. Ron Hubbard, the precept I'm applying right now is "Take Care of Yourself".

Unfortunately, sometimes that sometimes means beating the bejeesus out of your body.

I've started running again on a daily basis, after a period of slothful computer geekage. That has helped, significantly, and this weekend I'm going to hit the soccer field again after a long period of inactivity. I'm preparing for the Monday morning "aaaarrrgh".

However, as any soccer player can tell you, being sore as all hell, barely being able to move, etc -- there's sometimes nothing sweeter than that feeling.

As L. Ron Hubbard said in a lecture from the Philidelphia Doctorate Course in 1952, "...this body was made to be threatened with death three times a day. There's nothing like being threatened with death to bring somebody up to present time." - LRH

Sure beats just trudging in with the morning Starbucks. :)
