lately the league has been revamping itself. working us harder, drilling us more. it’s been extremely beneficial. i had fun scrimmaging a couple months ago until the big girls started visiting and i could see how far behind i was! the hitting, passing, &pack drills we’ve been working on help me see where i need work as well as where i am improving.
for example, i STILL need to practice hitting – BUT i have discovered that i can take a hit pretty well [aka without falling]. plus the hrd girls that have been practicing with us have been real nice about showing me how to use my [lack of] height to aim for weaker spots. i’ve also become a bit more aware of my surroundings…which i used to get yelled at about…a lot. haha
i’m feeling pretty excited to start scrimmaging again. 🙂
we’re moving to a new location, too…it’s so far! but it’s sooo nice!
not sure if i mentioned this, but a few weeks ago i took a couple pretty hard falls while scrimmaging with the hrd ladies. my left knee is kinda funky. i’ve never had an injury before, so it’s pretty frustrating having to go easy on it. although i believe it’s healing up…that, and i keep flopping over onto my thigh to avoid landing on it. haha perpetual bruise. always.
p.s. in regards to my super sick tee…i bought it because of this daily situation:
“miss, you’re short”
“thank you, captain obvious!”
p.p.s. on my way out of practice tonight, someone told me they follow my blog.
SO glad the parking lot was dark because i think i turned bright red…
“ha! that’s awesome! and now i feel like a giant dork…”
i love hearing when people in my real life visit my site! i just never know how to react. haha
it is i! captain obviosuly awkward!
I seriously almost bought that shirt last time I was shopping. I love threadless shirts!
Wow. I don't really know what roller derby it is but it sounds violent! 😀
That tshirt is amazeballs! I used to be such a tshirt gal…. but now I'm all about the dresses. I'll have to dig them out sometime!
I wish we had things like rollerderby, it sounds cool!
i do love that shirt! i think i'd cry if i got hit in derby. not because it hurts but because i'd probably take it personally 😉
nova– looooooove threadless 😀
sunny– haha ya, it's pretty violent 🙂
pink– amazeballs?! hahaha that's awesome. i dress kinda funky. sometimes i do tshirts with a cardy on top with a skirt. it's how i get away w/ tees at work 😀
alycia– i had to learn not to take the yelling personally 🙂
See, I wasn't lying 🙂
Enjoy every minute of skating for as long as you can! I've really enjoyed the past few weeks at Rec League. You ladies make it a lot of fun.
haha! thanks, elle 😉
i definitely will!
