Counting down

Another training session safely negotiated yesterday evening - and I turned up (with my new Asics boots - a birthday present to myself) despite the somewhat inclement weather (persistent drizzle) which means that I'm either becoming incredibly keen or increasingly desperate ahead of my impending debut for Chesham Vets in 10 days time (for an exact countdown please see the gizmo in the left-hand column - not that I'm obsessing or anything.)

The session was pretty good last night, consisting of lots of ball work interspersed with plenty of press-ups, sit-ups and squats. Thankfully my regular trips to the gym meant that these exercises weren't as humiliating as they might otherwise have been for me. It's an odd mix at Tuesday training at the moment - a handful of 1st team regulars, a bunch of 17 year-olds who are either playing for or aspire to the 2nds, a few old geezers like myself and one or two novices who haven't played before. It must be difficult to put together a session that caters for that mix of abilities and experience but it does seem to work.

So, the countdown has now well and truly started - and a home match against High Wycombe Bodgers on 13th October awaits...
