my new sport = bowling!?
We had an office off-site this week. We went bowling. I reluctantly played along. But, I did have some spitfire trash talk in me aimed at the team on the next lane, which included our VP. We split into 6 teams of 5 to bowl two games. Keep in mind we are a bunch of geeks. So, the level of competition was like if cycling had a Cat 9. But, at least I had my months of weight training fresh in my body and could do a nice lunge with powerful, straight throw of the ball. Which I found that if I got it straight down the middle, I usually got 9 pins. Not bad. Occasionally I would get 10, but almost always 9.
In the first game, I managed to tie for the 2nd highest score of the day at 139, which is totally amazing, since I've only bowled twice in the last 15 years. Wooo hooo! And, to my surprise, our team won the overall title for the two games. Supposedly, I've got some sort of gift certificate coming my way. Yeee haw!
.....of course, I paid for my victory the next morning when I had to do 2 x 20 intervals with a very sore left glute!
