After a year away, I played a bit of football this morning. I've not really played properly since my marathon training started way back in August '03 and that as well as my feeling of not being as fit as I should put me on guard.

Actually it turned out pretty well. A different pitch (no more astroturf) and a new group of people with mixed abilities (I was somewhere in the large middle) helped, but I managed to play for a good two hours with decent pace and without getting too tired. I will hurt tomorrow though and I didn't score any goals, but then I never did score much anyway. Ahem.

Regular participation will mean that I'll have to give up my running though, although Football is by far more fun if a bit more time consuming. Sometimes there just isn't enough time in the week...
