Getting Back To It - Two Years Later...

Soccer Practice

I decided, instead of watching my son play soccer this season, that I would practice with him. I've never played soccer and had no idea what to do. So I do what most Americans do...I let YouTube teach me.

The first time I played with my son, I realized how out of shape I was. I thought I was doing good. I'd had surgery March 2014 and was out of commission for a while - almost 6 months. It took quite some time just to begin an exercise program again. But playing soccer with my son showed me how much further I had to go. I was sore for about a week after that first time. However, I continued to practice with him once a week.

Soccer season is over now, but we intend to keep our "sessions" going (being a soccer mom is tough), and not only do I spend some quality mommy-son time with him, I burn calories to boot!
