Play casually with friends but nothing competitive. I really wanna try rugby or something when I get into uni though. Played a couple of times for fun with a few friends and it was quite good.
Get involved! Union/league? do you know what position you'd want to play/would be suited to?
I play rugby union in the Manchester internal league but I'm hoping to go for the Uni team next year. No idea where I'd place but hopefully no lower than the third team. We have 4 overall. I'm mainly slipping gently back into it as a knee cartilage injury in year 11 and a rotor cuff injury in year 12 stopped me playing for a while.
I continued lifting so I'm a fair bit stronger than most of the lads on the team, but my cardio is appalling especially for a second/third row.
Been out of shape for a while, but recently started going to the gym 3-4 times a week and I can see the results starting already.
Currently Maths Sports captain at Uni, captaining the football (goalkeeper), badminton, rounders and tennis teams, as well as playing rugby (any position really) when it doesn't clash with anything.
Recently rediscovered just how liberating and addictive running actually can be when it's done correctly - managed a personal best in the sense that I'd never run 5k or more before Saturday, when I managed 5.2k in a 30-minute session.
I'm finding the hardest thing is balancing out my diet to cope with both weight loss and core strength/muscle gain, but I think I've just about got there.
