I'm a weekend warrior.
Definition...People who do recreational activities (such as golfing, skiing, snowboarding, or mountain biking) solely on the weekends since they work Monday through Friday.
Let's throw in badminton to that list. Oh...that's that fluffy game where you take little racquets and try to hit a birdie over the net. All you have to do is stand and lightly swing the racquet, get the shuttlecock over the net and the game goes on. Not too strenuous.
Wrong. We're serious here....even have our own weighted raquets. Part of our backyard, come spring, turns into a badminton court and let me tell you...we PLAY the game. None of this standing around...you're diving, stretching to get an overhead shot or smash, bending to pick up shuttlecocks...super fast paced. People coming into our yard to watch give that "OMG...I had no idea look" and can't wait to play.
So this weekend was the first weekend with no wind, sunny and perfect for playing.
Start time...10AM. End time...9pm.
I am so needing this today.
