Racquetball Shoulder

After a break of playing racquetball for something like 10 years, I decided to give it a try again. Actually my nephew invited me to play with him. We both just renewed our memberships at Gold's Gym and he has been working out regularly. Meanwhile I have had a hard time getting there as often as I should. Playing racquetball sounded like a nice change of pace from the regular cardio machines and lifting weights. So I agreed to it and we played around noon on Saturday. Before the day was over, I was already starting to ache. I forgot that it could be a good workout in addition to just being fun. My gluts and my shoulder took the brunt of the damage. Since the initial shock to my system, my gluts have recovered but my shoulder still has yet to feel good. I've got racquetball shoulder. At least that is my self diagnosis. Never heard of it but I'm pretty sure it exists and that I have it. :) I'm just hoping that I recover in time for the next round on Wednesday!
