Thursday and Friday July 25

Thursday was a pretty cool day. I had a stretching /therapy session in the morning. As it was the first time I'd totally focused on just trying to get muscles to feel better by stretching, I was sore after. I had a nap in the passenger seat as my wife drove the family to Niagara Falls for a day trip. It was pretty cool. Chocolate always seems to please my troops.

I got to training late, as I was needed as a dad. It was a technical session when I got there, working on hands and positions. Seems I'll be hooking on Saturday for the Second XV and then being a sub for the First XV. It's going to be our big show, I guess.

After rugby training was done, I got this done for three rounds:

double Indian Club casts
Indian club head circles
20 KB cleans
20 KB snatches

After that, I did a 10 lb medicine ball squat and overhead throw and chase.

Then, I did about fifteen minutes of rolling on my legs. I knew that if I didn't, Friday's physio session would be a painful one.

Friday was a "Make sure nothing goes wrong" day. I got to my Physio appointment and I was right ... lots of "stripping" done to my ITB band and hip flexors. Man ... I'll get on them again and again. More rolling needed. More rolling needed.
