day 1915 – hockey is back

it’s good to be back at the rink after missing the past few hockey games due to overlapping schedule. i was afraid i’d be slow coming out of the gate but i held up and even registered an assist. the scoresheet isn’t really an accurate representation of the high scoring game. it was a fun game but man i’m tired from invigilating a blackbelt test that went wrong in far too many ways. being put in the spot to do something i haven’t practiced in three years isn’t exactly cool. good thing i managed to do it and come out unscathed

day 1845 – playoff craze

this is the crazy stretch where all my playoffs happen. woke up for an 8am start to play four softball games before we got knocked out. i hit up 8 rinks straight from the field for a hockey game; my legs were dead when i got to the rink. what a run for espr, making it to the quarter finals is quite an accomplishment. this team keeps improving and we’re only raising the bar for the next season. i feel fortunate to be able to return in time for playoffs after being sidelined for four weeks. i got home from all that activity and fell asleep even when sitting and rolling on the floor

day 1773 – take flight

the day didn’t start off well. i packed everything in the morning, everything i needed for the day except for my purse. even though the day started off on the wrong foot, it ended fairly well. officially taken flight to be a part of this club. it was on my small, medium, larrge list and now i’ve taken steps forward. back on the floor to work on things i want to learn and even of things i never heard of. it’s now a priority so i’ll make time to be here, but i’ll keep in mind that flipping and hockey on the same day isn’t a great idea

day 1772 – six innings

fielded only six innings against wombats before time cap because we struggled to get outs. it was a little windy and fielding more than not didn’t allow me to stay warm and into the game. even at the plate, i didn’t have a good swinging night with two walks and two infield outs. if i recall correctly, wombats are in tier c. we’re still sitting at two wins thus far but we still had fun like we always do. encouraging signs that everyone is still learning and improving as each game goes by

day 1768 – squint softball

mother nature has its way with softball sundays. it was raining during our season opener weekend and no different today for our early morning double header. layering up with baselayers and sweats to stay warm from the rain. double header was followed by an evening hockey game. as if my body wasn’t aching and stiff enough, add a stiff and swollen ankle to the mix after blocking a shot

day 1765 – kp time

decided living off tape to walk normally wasn’t sustainable, so went in to the clinic to fix my neck, knee and ankle. i walked into physio clinic with many things that was either tight or wasn’t feeling right, but walked out with assurance i’ll be able to move properly again. crazy its been twenty years since my physio opened this clinic and even crazier thinking what i would have done the past fourteen years if it weren’t for him. i hope he never retires so i can continue to ham with everything i do and everything i want to do

day 1751 – ultimate sub

it’s been a few years since a last played ultimate, but here i am subbing a double header. so much running and cardio involved in this sport; reminds me why it’s not my top pick. by the end of the two games, i had taken over seven thousand steps. i guess i wasn’t as tired as i would’ve been if it wasn’t for all that sunrun training. it took half the first game to get my lingo back and after i settled in, it turns out to be lots of fun
