I really hated having to be a spectator, but my knee injury was only the tip of the iceberg of excuses for me. Such a disappointing season for me personally; the club is in a much better situation than I am.
Seriously, we didn't default a single senior men's game this season ... and we ran three teams. That's a lot of rugby for one club to do. Simply astounding numbers of members.
We won four trophies / tournaments so far this year, too. A win on Oct 14th will mean a fifth Cup for the club for 2017. It's a level of success that we've only dreamt of in the last decade with four or five different coaches. It's a real shame that I've been only a small part of it.
Sitting there watching rugby yesterday was a bitter pill to swallow, but swallow it I did. It was a nice bright day in Toronto - a perfect day to play. My knee and everything else was just not cooperating.
Meh, I got home on time and I helped out about the house. Got coffee this morning, even helped one of the guys get back to the clubhouse to get his car. I was feeling physically good, but just not good enough to play rugby.
So, instead of whining like an idiot, I took advantage of the day and got this nice little workout done. Like a preview of what I can start to do in the mornings. A 20-minute session that I can tailor to the day if only to get something done for my fitness.
Set the timer and just kept going on the elliptical trainer. Two minutes on the trainer, two minutes of kettlebell exercises. Mostly just swings, but later switched it up to clean and presses, if only because of boredom.
At least I got something done today - and thought about how to carve out time in the average mornings how to get this done on the daily.
