Ultimate Derailed

I had grand aspirations to play ultimate five consecutive days last week. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday were to be regularly scheduled Burlington lunchtime pickup, and Tuesday, Thursday evenings were to be BUDA summer league games. That plan was derailed when I suffered a quadriceps contusion during Tuesday night's game from an in-game collision. I played the remainder of the game with some discomfort, but once I stopped, things tightened up very quickly. I could barely walk on Wednesday morning and was sidelined for two days.

Wouldn't you know it, though, I was back on the field for Friday's lunchtime game and have already played Monday and Wednesday this week. There are still some lingering effects, and my nagging hamstring problem (on the other leg) is still in the background, but for the most part I'm back in business. I've got five consecutive days of ultimate scheduled again for next week so we'll see how it goes.

Ultimate Statistics (since January 2008):
Total Games Played: 193
Total Hours Played: 225
