At the beginning of the week, I posted a schedule of my workouts for the next few days. From the start, things didn’t go as planned. I felt a bit under the weather Monday and chose to rest up instead of going to the gym. In hindsight, this turned out to be a good decision, because yesterday was intense.
22 people showed up to play football at Alumni Stadium on Tuesday, meaning that we were able to have a full game. It was fantastic, and I got a lot of touches. Even after everyone left, I stayed out with my friend Aaron doing left-footed shooting drills. All-in-all, I had 2.5 hours of soccer yesterday. Today is going to be a rest day as well, because we’re all going to play again on Thursday.
On an unrelated note, some of you may be wondering why I haven’t written much about the US performance in the Gold Cup. Frankly, I was too disappointed in our performance to say much. Like Arsenal, the USMNT seriously needs to have a look at its back line.
