violently protesting


Do you exercise regularly? Well, I do. I mean, I go to the gym regularly (almost every afternoon!) So, I was expecting myself to have a pretty 'respectable' level of stamina.

Gotta love them guns!

Just to clarify: I'm not sniffing my armpit, BUT, I'm kissing my gun! Ho ho! :p

However, I was proven wrong on that particular Saturday.

My friends and I went for a badminton game that day. I have 2 rackets, but there were 3 of us playing. Luckily, the guys from the next court were all so generous, that they've lent us one of their extra rackets. 

I'm not a pro, so I've only bought a pair of pretty basic rackets.

I'm really not a pro in badminton (not even close!), but when it comes to playing, I play quite hard. So, I will usually play with the guys.

My, very-strong-partner!

The game was great, and I've played reasonably well, despite the fact that I've never held my rackets since last year! We were getting ready to leave the court after being told to by a worker at the sports' centre, when a lady suddenly talked to us. Apparently, the courts will be used for a Lau Gar Kung Fu training, and she's inviting us to join for the day. Since we were so energetic, we were like, "Sure, why not?"

Ignorant faces. We didn't know what was coming!

The training was actually a fitness training, where everybody were pushed to their limits. We ran, and jumped, we did push ups, sit ups, planks, crunches, and many others! In an hour, we literally trained continuously, with only two short breaks in between to quench our thirst.


After the training,I've almost dropped dead......

....while they continued with sparring.

I went home, showered in a rush, went for lunch at a friend's house, came home, and just collapsed on my bed. I was dead tired! Literally!

I woke up in the middle of the night, and soaked inside the bath tub for a good one hour, since I can't really massage all the lactic acids all over my muscles. It just don't work that way.

Sleeping Relaxing inside the bath tub.

When I woke up in the morning after, I felt like 20 years of my life has been taken from me. Every inches of my muscles are violently protesting of my any movements! It's a riot!

I can't even bend properly to take out my stuffs from the drawer!

I have to use 2 steps to bend down, and get the stuffs from the drawer at the bottom! It's excruciating!

I've had this kind of experience a few times before too. Once was after the Mt.Kinabalu's expedition, and another one was after helping out my dad building a house. :p

I'm all patched up now, so, all is well.
Cheers, love.

On a side note; I can't even do my 'business' properly. You'll get it, when you get it.
