Back on form

Really enjoyed 6-a-side last night. Did a lot more running and got involved a lot more in what was a “physical” match with a lot of meaty tackles.

I think more or less everyone will have woken up with some sort of ache or pain this morning.

All I can say is that I’m thankful for the protection given by my shin pads as I could have had more than just a small lump there this morning had I not been wearing them.

My team came out on top again with superior fitness seeming to be the biggest contributing factor to the result.

We had a couple of new lads playing with us tonight, both good players, who I’ll be hoping will be able to play every week as the standard of play was slightly higher.

I think we’re going to have to agree on a colour scheme or set of strips to wear – the team we played were all in Newcastle shirts, except for one person who was wearing the black and white stripes of Juventus.

I have to say, it was nice getting the win over a team in black and white stripes.

On another subject, I’ll hopefully have my car back tonight after the clutch/gearbox is replaced. Can’t believe how much having no transport affects you!

That’s it for this post. Seeya later!

6-a-side – week 4

It’s been a while since I last posted on here. Mainly because of a lack of motivation as well as having had a lot on my plate with work, both cars breaking down and other not very nice things going on but hopefully the cars will be up and running again tomorrow and thing will get back to normal.

Tonight will be the 4th week of 6-a-side which I’m enjoying greatly – though I’ve been disappointed with my performances the last 2 weeks running.

My first touch has all but deserted me but I will, I hope, find it again tonight.

At the very least my fitness is improving. I now last 20 minutes before I get a stitch!

The games so far have been fast paced and fairly physical with some meaty tackles flying in.

My shin pads (with ankle protection) seem to have done the trick in preventing badly bruised ankles – damn that blood thinning medication which makes me bruise like a peach after the slightest contact.

The games seem to be getting faster and more competitive each week, and hopefully that will continue. My team usually comes out on top – the other team always runs out of gas later on in the game allowing us to pick them off.

Twitter

And now, off the subject of football, are any of you twitter users also getting sick and tired of your timeline being filled up with people asking for retweets?

For example:

“Hi @FamousPerson Please give me a retweet for absolutely no worthwhile reason”.

Talking of Twitter, you can follow me @keeps21 by clicking on the Twitter logo at the top right hand side of the page. As well as adding me to Facebook by clicking on the Facebook logo in the same place

And that’s about it for this entry, cheers for reading!

Seeya!
