Welcome to Day Sixteen of The November 30/30 Challenge.
The activity highlight of today is Basketball!
Basketball is one of the most watched sports on television, as well as being played by millions. Whether it's a lone teenager just shooting hoops, or playing in a competitive team, people everywhere have a fascination with it.
Me, not so much.
It gets a bit too rough at times. Not only that, my aim is dreadful....with a capital D!
And I'm a short-arse anyway. (Well, pretty much)!
Basketball is a very fast paced sport, so the chance of injury is high. There is lots of running, jumping, pivoting, sudden stopping and twisting, so you need to make sure you have good shoes with ankle support.
If this does sound like the activity for you, there are a lot of benefits to playing Basketball, some of which are:
Improves balance and co-ordination.
I read this quote from basketball 'king' Michael Jordan, and thought it was pretty cool.
"I have missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot .. and missed. And I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why... I succeed."
So, don't be afraid of failing at something. Be afraid of not trying.
I need to remember that too.
