day 1242 – season stat

image
at the halfway mark of my chicks and sticks season so it’s a good time to do a midseason evaluation for myself. happy to see the stats beside number sixteen has grown. i’ve done just about everything in my rookie season – score, assist, block shots, get cross-checked, bodycheck and even get two player of the game. i’ve witnessed my teammates going the extra mile to back me up when someone takes a run at me from behind. looking forward to the second half of the season. one thing i must do better of is keeping my gloves on my hand

day 1224 – put on ice

image

the drive to the rink was icy, but i wanted to play my game after writing my final exam and handing in the term project that made me sacrifice games the past two weeks. the final was confusing but i walked out and glad to be done. on the ice, a guy nailed me from behind with a cross check. i was fine and got up immediately to stay in the play but my teammates were sticking up for me. glad to know they got my back and didn’t take exception to a nasty hit. i can feel my battery is pretty depleted; not much energy left in me but i still got good chances and best of all my team came out on top

day 1197 – first career goal

image

i’m officially on the stat sheet with my first career goal and seven games into the season. the goal was hugely satisfying as i roofed it over the goalie; he probably underestimated my ability to lift the puck off the ice. i had a strong game with good chances which earned me player of the game. the referee was quick to give me the game played puck and i didn’t waste any time in labelling it. it was a busy and productive running around town; i need more days like this and i need to remind myself to keep my spirit high

day 1190 – subbing machine

image

it was a busy night for me running around subbing everywhere. i played both time slots at dodgeball tonight on four different teams because three other teams needed girl subs so i was highly sought after. after quadruple shifting, i got my butt to 8 rinks for my hockey game. my legs are very heavy from all the activity and my hand is also a little banged up

day 1153 – trifecta

image

glad to report productivity was quite high today; it was a good balance of both work and exercise. a crazy way to finish the last six hours of my monday but definitely sets the tone for the week. i had everything all in one night – first was coaching, second came dodgeball and third was hockey. played an okay game with two good scoring chances and the team got a lucky overtime win. i survived off the snacks that i could fit in on my drives to and from events. i am so done for the night; i just want to pass out the minute i get home

day 1148 – geared up

image

after round one of dodgeball games, i am in the locker room geared up and ready for round two of the night. fortunately i managed to sneak in a small pre game meal within the ninety minutes break in between the two. i won’t complain too much about being exhausted since i am doing my fun stuff. time to go hit the ice for warm up and be prepared to play some hockey with the twin linemates

day 1143 – hockey storage

image

my hockey gear has migrated into it’s proper placed – organized in my garage corner. the storage was designed by yours personally. i put a lot of care and went through many iterations to use my space with maximum efficiency. i didn’t feel any pre-game jitters but definitely felt anxious to get my first action at game pace. i had a good first game and a lot of fun; skated hard, played my position and focused on the big picture. happy to say that my back wasn’t an issue aside from the times i got bodychecked
