As we enter club season, this blog will continue to be about my training rather than about my team. Still you guys should at least know who I’m playing for. I mentioned that I was going through tryouts in a few of my posts last month.
When I began this blog I assumed I would be playing for Blue Route again this year. Blue Route was a first year womens team from Philly and we were eliminated in the game to go to nationals last season. Unfortunately, Blue Route disbanded at the end of April. Since then, I have been trying out for Scandal from DC who placed sixth at nationals last year. I did not make the team but I will be practicing with them. I am still not sure who, if anyone, I’ll be playing with for the club series. Needless to say, this is all a bit… disappointing. And it has not been good for my training or my motivation.
Nevertheless, I will continue to document my training to finish out the year. I will still be playing in tournaments with somebody. I still have to survive and thrive during four hour weekend practices. I still want to be quicker, faster, stronger. In that sense, nothing has changed and so my training schedule will remain the same. The season ain’t over yet. I plan to be in peak physical condition for whatever opportunity presents itself.
Thank you all again for reading Melissa’s Ultimate Fitness. This project is among the many reasons I have to continue to take my training seriously despite the fact that my season is not turning out at all as planned.
