Day two… Although it feels as if it’s been eight weeks already.
We got up earlier this morning, with a 7:30 breakfast, and 9-12 practice. The first practice was okay, we implemented our offense and worked on our ‘team defense’. I struggled at first in the offense when we played it live with defense, because my concept of spacing wasn’t working.
But by the time our 5-8pm practice rolled around, and after asking the coaches a few questions, I was much smoother in the flow of offense. It was actually quite fun!
The second practice, especially at the end, was physically fatiguing… But I was able to push though, and even scored some good shots in the last few minutes of scrimmage. I felt much more dominant today, but I still need to work in ‘winning’ the foot battle when posting up. And my defense got better today, but there is still progress that needs to be made.
Highlights of the day:
1) winning every jump ball
2) I had a few killer blocks
3) improving on my patience when I got the ball
Great day today, I was happy when it was done… But now after an ice bath, and dinner I’m ready for a hot shower and bed.
Bring on tomorrow!
