i was five feet away from possibly hitting my first ever home run. i had never struck the ball so hard in my softball days and if it only shifted five or so feet to the right, it would have landed in fair territory well over the left fielder. we played a high tiered team today and got creamed but we’ll be back on the field for more softball come thursday. it was a scorching day with sweat down my back even when standing on the field. on my drive home, my car registered thirty degrees celsius
first regular game of the season for espr and we got our first win. the team put together a great six strong innings and already tied last year in the win column. i played an all around game with defensive plays at first base and getting base hits with solid hits. i did, however, make an early season error that i’m not very happy about. i was totally robbed of a base hit on what i thought was the hardest i’ve ever struck a softball, but the left fielder dove for it. everyone stayed after the game and put some work into fielding
picked up my gym goodie bag from winning the march nash challenge. it’s a big surprise because i never have the luck at any of these draws, contests or challenges. it’s a nice little gym bag with embroidered logo, perfect for one of the many sports i currently play. inside this gym bag were shaker bottle, a shirt, headphones, some protein bars, towel and coupons. i can definitely put them all to good use and keep going towards my fitness goals
got the free pass to wear hockey jersey to work to honour the victims of the humboldt bronco’s. to think of what these hockey families are going through, the loss of their children overnight. it hits a soft spot in me; playing hockey myself and knowing how much dedication is needed to be in a sport. of the many jerseys i have, my mom chose my canucks jersey so i opted to wear my fishsticks jersey to work
third last game of the season for fishsticks so filling the scoresheet is what i needed. i did exactly that tonight, taking the lead in my bet with a one goal two assist night. i was tired heading into the game having worked from nine to eight with a two hour gap in between teaching shift and promotion test, but not so tired after such good production. i’m sure i’ll feel the fatigue even more tomorrow trying to wake up for my 7:30am shift after a late game. i’m just happy that i feel like i’m rounding into form again as playoffs are ramping up.
looking at some old photos of when we last played queen’s tournament, and now we’re looking ahead to this year’s. frankly, i haven’t played since september and i can’t tell if i’m missing the sport or missing my friends. it’ll be a real test for that thumb of mine come next week when i step back into the court to field balls. i’m not sure how i feel but i’m sure that’s not relevant. honestly i don’t know how my physio hand specialist feels about that, but making my comeback is bound to happen
it’s friday anf i have hockey; this combination usually means it’s a good day. i fit a workout in between as part of my warmup to get me psyched up for this game. i was feeling strong going through my warmup and light power lifts. fishsticks as a whole played a well rounded game and dominated the ice in every way. i for one had a solid game with many nice passes, and a breakaway that could have ended the game. though we had many missed opportunities and didn’t come away with the win, but i have an assist to show for. feeling the frustration of being blindsided with no call, i played with more aggression and took someone down to send a message. quite satisfied with my game performance and know that i’ve just tied up my bet
