Sport, or lack thereof

At last update I was indulging in Ultimate, but I'll probably be dropping that. They train on Sundays, but I usually can't make it for the outdoor training because of church, so I figured it wasn't worth it to turn up only for the indoor sessions.

I'm usually feeling really lazy on Sunday evenings, anyway. (Plus, they screen movies at that timeslot! Who knows what wonderful shows I might miss!)

That leaves only one activity I joined the AU for - karting.

I've been to two events so far, both at the same track. It's a small indoor course, not really much to speak of actually, but great for a beginner like me to get into the hang of things. For £5 and £7 (discounted prices for the first two sessions) it can be considered a real bargain, even if each session lasted only about 15 minutes.

I'm not very good at it yet, slowly improving, but I think it's great fun. There's just something about the adrenaline rush when you're behind the wheel and going at speeds of up to about 64km/h. Not a particularly impressive figure I guess, but aiyah... it's just really fun lah. Kinda like playing Daytona, except that you're really moving and experiencing the centrifugal force and stuff like that.

It's like the ultimate racing game. That you don't get killed playing, anyway.

I suppose I'll get my exercise from jogging. Was supposed to go today, but somehow I got dragged into queueing for tickets to Nottingham with some seniors.

(Seniors? Juniors? It's strange when you don't know where exactly to classify the second year girls, but I guess that's a thought for another time.)
