Whats up Folks?
Im in a pretty good mood today, as it is my birthday SWEEEEEET. I started the day off with “Power Hour” and then hit the road for some client meetings, and got back just in time for a office lunch honoring yours truly. Although it was a pretty awesome gesture, they surprised me with one of my favorite meals from BEFORE I started training…It was a sandwich called the Mayflower…16 inches of sub with turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce, BRUTAL. of course I ate as much as I could as not to be rude, but man do I feel like crap! The Ladies in the office dont seem to get the training thing, but none the less they are very thoughtful.
OK Back to Lacrosse. I am starting to get the itch real bad, the other night at WAC practice it started to feel like everything was falling into place. Im hitting the whistle well, reading my wing play, and getting the ball to the right people after winning the face-offs. not to mention my intensity seems to have grown immensely, I actually think some of the younger guys on the WAC team are scared of me. And why not? Im completely mysterious to them. All they know is that I used to coach at WAC, I used to play in the MLL and I am about twice their size, oh and my idea of mental training for the Washington college “x”men it to tell them exactly how much they suck (of course in a constructive yet blunt manor). Either way it feels good to be more like I was in college, INTENSE.
A few weeks back Trey Reeder from the New Jersey organization sent me a few questions about who I am on and off the field, and today they were posted on the “Pride Website”. This is when it really hit me…IM BACK. New Jersey always treated me well, even when I was just out of college, because of this I promised Pete Jacobs (the head coach) that I would get into the right kind of shape to help his team to compete(face offs are an area of concern, as they should be).
I think today will end up going in the category of “set back” once my evening is over, since I am going to dinner with the family tonight and lunch was clearly not the kind of meal I would have normally eaten. However, as a whole I am on course, and cannot see any reason why I will not be ready for this season.
In the meantime HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MEEEEE!
