Oh my word. I will be SO SORE tomorrow!
And for the first time in 5 months, it won’t because of weights. or yoga. or running.
It’ll be because Saturday was a RUGBY day!
5 months since I’ve been swiftly tackled to the ground.
5 months since I’ve been bruised and beaten to a pulp.…and for the most part, loving it.
Last night, I was so excited to lay out the clothes for the long day ahead:
I did my best to get a semi-decent night’s sleep, then woke up at 6:30 AM to leave at 7 for the 9 AM-4 PM Women’s Rugby Clinic hosted by the Glendale Raptors.
It was a fantastic day! While the rest of the country is drowning in snow, Colorado has been generous with the sunshine and today was no exception; 60 degrees, baby!
It was a long day, but I didn’t feel worn out until the end of it. That’s a reward for my hard work in the off season! I had a great time running drills for forward players, but now my shins and butt are really feeling it. Scratch that, every part of my body is aching. Plus, I can say I bled today; I totally gashed up two of my fingers!
How? I’m not sure. Turf fields have a knack for roughing up your skin.
All in all, I’m so happy to have gotten back on the field for some pre-spring season action. And to have
slapped around bonded with my new teammates:
Question: What is your favorite way to spend a Saturday? Does it involve sports? I grew up always having a game of some sort on either Saturday or Sunday. In fact, I remember using that as an excuse not to go to Sunday school or get confirmed in church. Hehe 🙂
