mostly been a winger for squirtle all season, but getting my time at defense tonight. i much enjoy that our team can be in the same locker room as opposed to separating it be gender. we lost by a margin, but i still had fun. honestly my ankle is struggling when in that skate. the ganglion on the medial side is only getting worse and really bothers me especially in the second half of the game. i’m not sure what i need to do and how to address this issue. what will it take to continue playing this sport?
post game team dinner after a game we lost with minutes left in the game. the team played sound defensively, and i felt i had a solid game as a defense. first time having a penalty called against me, an interference penalty when i laid a hip check on one of the wingers. i had a lot of fun playing this game, much of it had to do with the quality of hockey instead of fending ourselves from fighters. it’s must win games from here on or our season will be over
trying something new and falling on my face is quite normal. i can’t lie about the disappointment i’ve been facing with my struggles as of late. i feel like i’ve lost the back tuck and aerial, both of which i’ve spent so long working on. the only thing i still have is my front tuck. i feel ashamed that i’m going through this struggle with my flips and tricks and very few people will understand. sports has always come rather easy all my life and my coordination has never been an issue, but for this i always second guess myself and kind of want to give up
a september hike at golden ears park to close off this year’s hiking season. getting lost was basically the adventure of the day. what was suppose to be a sub ten kilometre hike turned into an over twenty-five kilometres. we were quick to comment how well marked the trail was, but somehow we accidentally went off into unmarked territory. we hiked through mosses, climbed over fallen tree stumps and crossed rivers. i was very intrigued by the orange fungi atop the trees, but didn’t dare take any home for i was warned there’s a lot of poisonous mushrooms out there. an hour an a half drive back home and i was exhausted. i definitely got my exercise and step count in today. at the end of it all, what was most important was i made it back in time to clean up for a wedding reception
i needed all the rest i could get the day after doing a massive unplanned hike of over eight hours. what was suppose to be an easy nine kilometre hike turned into an off route, stream crossing hike of over twenty five. a day where i amassed forty one thousand steps is by far the highest my fitbit ever registered. i don’t want to move for anything or anyone, and pretty much stayed stationary most of the day
it was nice to switch from work and school stuff to get out a little. saw so many dodgeballers at rogers arena also catching the canucks and stars game. even though the canucks lost, we had scoring chances and late period excitements. i have enjoyed going to the handful of games this season; the goal is to be a season ticket holder down the road
could barely keep my eyes open this morning but i still felt okay during the day. i had all the intention to go training tonight but everything kind of fell apart when evening hit. i went way off track i couldn’t get myself to go to training. instead, i turned for home where emotional eating happened. disappointment loomed over me and i feel so utterly disgusted at myself for being useless. i just want to pull a blanket over my head or better yet bury myself in a hole
