Interesting day… as they all are. Mental games, maybe?

Taught PE to the girls at Mary Immaculate Queen school, which is always great when you can get them to play dodge ball after their workout. Then, proceeded to help coach the Lakeland JV girls volleyball team. They played a double header and the first games went as planned. The second set of games were quite nerve wracking. (Is that a word? I’ll look it up later.) Okay, back to the volleyball games. The girls were communicating well, getting to every ball, staying low. Staying on the balls of their feet to be able to move quickly. All good things in volleyball. The second set of games was the exact opposite. No talking. Standing straight up and on their heels. I don’t know if the other team got into their heads before the game or what. The Lakeland girls should have blown the doors off the other team. Oh well! They all had fun. As did I, trying to figure out why they weren’t able to pass the ball for 6 straight serves. You win some, you lose some. We will give 110% next time. Yada yada yada, as Seinfeld would say.

I need to find out if I can train these girls in the off-season. I need to find out if I can train the whole athletic department during the off-season. Hmmm! I need a location. Pronto!

Ate a wonderful meal using butternut squash as pizza crust. Tiny pizzas for dinner with grilled tomatoes, a salad, and a small glass of wine. It is now time for bed. Sleep well, for tomorrow will be another interesting day.
