Two months ago, I started playing soccer for the first time ever. I practice twice a week and play a full game every Sunday evening. I figured it would just involve running around and trying to kick the ball. I must have been insane! Soccer is intense! It's the best workout I could ever imagine! I am by far one of the worst players in terms of skills on my team which is only to be expected since I have no experience and am really out of shape. However, as each week goes by, I feel my legs getting stronger, my abdomen tightening up, my energy level increasing, and my endurance on the field improving. I'm getting the knack of how things work. Sometimes I kick the ball in the right direction at just the right speed.
The team has started to talk about indoor soccer for the winter. I'm going to need a pair of indoor soccer shoes. Crazy, right?
