I Like Sportz

And I don’t care who knows! (+1 point if you get the reference)

So in the new year I’ll be playing flag football on Monday nights and soccer on Thursday nights from January to March!

Sports are my #1 preference for getting exercise.

Impromptu work out

Feeling like a log this morning so decided to get active:

-100 push ups, sets of 10 alternating close grip and wide grip

-100 tricep dips with chair, sets of 20

-200 body weight squats, sets of 50

-150 russian twists, sets of 50

-2 1 minute planks

I really need to run tonight.

I haven’t run all week! Tuesday my lower back was in agony after horseback riding and I wasn’t able to make time yesterday. Going to shoot for 4 miles tonight to make up for the week. I’ll also run tomorrow before work.

I should be playing football this Sunday too and that always proves to be an awesome workout!

It’s raining, it’s pouring…
And I get to go play football today! Not only that, we are playing the last game of the day so the field will be completely destroyed. Ah well, some of the more memorable games I’ve played were in the rain.
Go Thunder!

P.S. The pic is of me intercepting a ball in the endzone in a game last season.

This is me surfing about 2 years ago. I haven’t been since. The year prior I must have gone surfing at least 5 times. There is a small surf town about 4 hours away from where I live. I honestly hated how I looked in a wet suit each time I went up but I didn’t care because I really loved the rush of catching a wave.
On the West Coast, surf season is the winter, so I can’t wait to go back in the winter and get back into the sport!

Football Was Awesome Yesterday

We won our football game yesterday 30-12. They scored 12 points right off the bat (missed the conversions) and we quickly figured them out and shut their team out for the 3 quarters.

We had our full roster for the first time this season finally so I didn’t get to play defense, but that’s ok. It meant I was able to really sell out on offense. I had a couple 3rd down conversion catches and I caught the go-ahead touchdown. It’s exciting because the position I play, I’m not normally looked at as a redzone threat, but I think our quarterback noticed how much quicker I am out there.

I’ve always been fast for my size which I was my nickname is Buffalo. On special teams I would often beat faster guys to the ball carrier. Now that I am slimming down I am becoming even faster. What’s better is I can really push myself without being too winded to push myself on the next play.

I was only winded on one play and it was when our quarterback threw an interception I ran the guy down from behind. I thought I was going to pass out because I think I forgot to breathe as I was sprinting after him, but I recovered pretty quickly.

Sorry for the long post, I’m just big on football right now!
