Just about to start reading: The Go-giver: A Little Story About a Powerful Business Idea really looking forward to it, lots of good recommendations..
Veteran’s basketball lasted all of one week. I woke up the following day with a sore left knee, and a trip to By Design Holistic Health to get the news that I had damaged my medial collateral ligament (MCL) and my posterior cruciate ligament (PCL)! It’s been a bit of a struggle to get my strength back, but mostly because it’s been so busy that I haven’t taken the time to do my exercises!
The U10 Girls have also had a fairly rough time of it since moving up to B Grade. There has been some great work, but it’s hard not to get demoralised when the opposition is a fair bit better and more experienced.
2015 will be a better year!
The team was running short of players, I need something to help me stayget fit, and it will help me with my coaching and credibility if I’m in the trenches playing the game as well as coaching.
It’s a fun match, the guys don’t train but we get out there and have some fun. There was plenty of tips for me which was great as it’s been 15 or so years since I’ve played.
Interestingly the jersey I was thrown was number 7, which was my number when I played back in primary school (Winter 1980 Premiers!!!)
The results were about 32-20 down, but some of the guys reckon we should have beaten them, and there are plenty of better and taller teams in the competition. Yikes.
A few good wins at the the end of grading has seen the team pushed in to B grade, which is going to be a huge stretch for all of us. We started the game by scoring in the first minute, but by half way through the 1st half we were 10-2 down. It was quickly apparent these girls were seasoned players, and the final score of 63-6 was plainly visible on all our girls faces at the end. 🙁
We were simply far too slow, not getting back to defend and not passing well at all.
A great learning experience, hopefully we can turn it around next week.
