I decided to play some basketball today so I took the kids to the park. I've been more energetic the last past 12 days so I wanted to see how that translates on the basketball court. I hadn't been able to dunk a basketball in the last 8 years (and the 30 before that). Now that I'm on this 24 Day Challenge I'm able to come within a foot of touching the rim. Okay, maybe a foot and a half. This stuff gives you more energy, it doesn't make you a super hero overnight as I found out. I have a great inside game and can hit almost everything, unfortunately I was playing outside. That is my excuse, and I think it is a reasonable excuse. This area is known for it's high winds and I was dealing with that all day. Every time I shot the ball there seemed to be a 2 mile an hour gust that would alter the trajectory of the ball. Darn wind, maybe next time it will be better. I just need to keep being active, keep a healthier life style and take my supplements to fill in for the gaps my diet doesn't fill. Then maybe I'll be able to dunk. That, or one of these nights I will hack off a foot of the post that holds the backboard. Either way, I will dunk that ball.
