Basketball Blues

One of the perks of Air Force life is that you're literally ordered to go to the gym 2-3 times a week. What happens once you get there varies from unit to unit, but where I work, we have one day a week where we show up for "mandatory" PT. At some bases, this means doing stretches and calisthenics together and then running in formation (boo!) Here, it means we show up, do our jumping jacks (or as the Army likes to call them...side-straddle-hops), sit-ups and push-ups, and then we're free to go do our own thing (yay!)

Normally I run a couple of miles on the treadmill, punish myself on the elliptical for 15-20 minutes, and if I have time, slack off on the bike for a bit before hitting the showers.

Today, I decided to be "social" and play basketball. Two observations.

1) I suck at basketball.

2) I really, really hurt after playing.


Exercise as a work requirement! That is one of the coolest work requirements I have ever heard! And yeah, basketball can be very brutal on the body!
