Bums!

We were all set to be wiped off the tennis court. The team we were playing were very strong and hadn't dropped a point over the five weeks of the league but I was looking forward to the challenge.

It all started so well.

I served well, my volleys were working and I was well able to rally with the girls. We won that first game.

The second game started off well with us winning the first couple of points.

Then came the lob...not a problem I thought as I raced back to get it. Unfortunately it was a great lob and landed on the back of the line so I stretched that bit more....that's when I felt it...yep I tore a muscle in my bum.

I continued to play but I was in agony and couldn't put my weight onto that leg.

Of course we lost.

I'm sitting here in a great deal of pain as it's far worse today but at least I have a good excuse to blog all day and I've just booked a spa treatment at this hotel where I'm going for a girls weekend with the tennis girls.

Now that really is a pain in the arse!!

Ok, I know that's stating the obvious, but seriously, how often do you get a change to use that in context.

Barbara said...

I thought you were calling your opponents bums for winning - now I understand!

I know that type of injury hurts a lot. Relax and look forward to your spa treatment.

How often does one get to say they pulled a muscle in their bum? :) It's funny but I'm sure painful, hope you'll be able to sit without pain soon. Enjoy the Spa!
