So maybe it was the sunny day out there for today's practice, or maybe it was simply that it was time "I GET IT". But I have been struggling, even perhaps a bit worried about my ability to be able to actually do this sport. As my previous posts have described, the physical demand was not an issue, skills are not horrible, but definitely needs improvement, but my "aggressiveness" in one-on-one game skills and setting up/ comprehending "plays" was HORRIBLE!
I was having trouble improving on this aspect as well. I could practice fitness as i train for the knee knacker, I could even practice skills with my pro-husband.. (who doesn't really benefit in any way from helping me but does anyways) but for setting up plays... you can't practice without the whole team there, knowing when I was making mistakes, and me asking a number of questions trying to understand each role in a play and how I was to execute them. This was even more complicated by still having to have the skill aspect relatively proficient, or else the drill/play just falls apart anyways!! SO MUCH FOR THE BRAIN TO THINK ABOUT!
SO today.. at Grimston Park in the sunny weather we had another practice.
