Time Time Time CUT IT BACK!

March 4, 2009

So once again I am trying to get fit. I haven’t yet, but will join the uni gym in the coming future. Whether or not I get the value of my $280 a year subscription we will see. Also I’ve been playing a bit of football (soccer). Yesterday a friend of mine said a few mates of his were going down to the field to have a kick around. I jumped at the opportunity. I was quite shocked when I found out what I had got myself into. These guys weren’t just there to have a “kick around”. These 20-something year olds were from the second tier league in Canberra, and I was a guest at their training session. I was already a bit puffed from the long walk to the field, and my breaths began to deepen. We started off with a few laps warm up and some lunges etc. I survived that, but taking a glance at my ‘teamates’ and I could tell I was the only one showing signs of fatigue this early in the session. We then did a passing drill where we had to keep the ball and pass it around without letting the opposition gain control. If they did happen to do so then we had to defend and get it back. We did this non-stop for 20 minutes and I was hurting. For the remainder of the session we did a defence vs attack game. I was in defence and we had to stop the other team from scoring. Obviously all the show ponies were in attack and I didn’t really enjoy trying to stop them. At one point I was even nuttied, to which I started to shout the usual call but refrained in fear of backlash from ‘the boys’. All up we played for about 90 minutes straight and I was absolutley knackered. I had to hurry off the make trivia, meaning I missed the warm down. I woke up this morning as sore as I have ever been. Going upstairs to my room and sitting down on the toilet paticularly hurt. The price of fitness.

In other news I have a pretty rad weekend. It started 30mins ago at 4pm Wednesday 4th March and finishes on Tuesday 10th March at 13:30. Awww yeah!
