Community sport is back! I’m not sure if you’re aware as to why all community sports were cancelled last year, and if you’re not then it’s not my place to say. I would recommend getting out from underneath the rock you’ve been living under for the last year and checking out some current events. But anyway, I digress. Community sport is rearing and ready to go, even inside sports which I thought would take a while to get back into. This is extremely exciting for me because I play basketball. It’s my first game back next week.
Before basketball came to a sudden halt at the beginning of last year, I was experiencing some trouble with my feet and had to go to a foot specialist in Cheltenham for treatment. I was still allowed to play sports, but I had to wear special shoes and make sure that I did specific exercises before and after playing. This didn’t bother me too much because I was still able to play basketball. If I was told not to play until it got better, it would’ve been a very different story. Funnily enough, it turns out that no one could play sport for a year anyway, so I guess it wouldn’t have mattered if the foot specialist told me I couldn’t play.
I spent the year-long offseason making sure that I got my feet back into a healthy order. I was suffering from mild plantar fasciitis and the year without intense running actually really helped. I hope to be able to run so much better than I could when I had plantar fasciitis, and I’m looking forward to seeing if I can at my first game.
I’ll never be a professional basketball player, but I really love the sport. Hopefully, I can go back to holding my own on the court again. Here’s to winning my team winning the championship this season.
