Sports

On Sunday, we met sushidog in Victoria Park for our first go at rollerblading in a year. My muscles seemed disproportionately sore for not much distance, so out-of-practice was I. The paths are fairly level and moderately smooth, so it's a good place to skate. Rain meant we'll try their well-reputed café some other time.

In other "exercise" news, we've been playing frisbee golf on Wii Sports Resort. We've been playing other games too, but none are as good as the reason for being given it in the first place. I played Ultimate fairly seriously in high school and still relate better to frisbees than, say, ball sports. The physics engine is one of the best parts of the game. Hit the water from the right angle, and the frisbee bounces off of it. Hit the edge of the cliff, right up at the green, and the frisbee will teeter before yielding to gravity. Bouncing off trees sometimes means an out-of-bounds frisbee will fall back in to safety. The water effects are very pretty.

I hope you've recovered? My bruised derriere is fine now! I'm sorry the pub was a disappointment; it's usually much nicer than that! But next time we shall go to the café instead, or the bakery if it's raining!

Yes, I wasn't that sore from it, just more than I thought I would be given how little it felt like I was doing. My current feeling of used muscles is from walking up more hills than usual. It's all good for me. Glad that your fall didn't lead to lasting pain!

I'd love to try to bakery too.
