Traveling, Training, and Transfers
Hey all…for my American readers, I hope you had a good fourth. For the rest of you, too bad you had work while we all grilled hamburgers and blew stuff up. But I digress.
Despite the fact that this is the one week off I have all summer, I’ve been quite busy. For Independence Day weekend, I visited with family in New Hampshire. They have a nice beach house up there, and my family traditionally celebrates the fourth up there together.
While I was up there I took my little cousin to a local pitch for a training session. Unfortunately he got pretty tired out after only about 15 or 20 minutes, so we had to call it a day pretty early. The rest of the weekend didn’t go so well for training either. I ate a lot of junk and drank soda (in massive qualities) for the first time in ages. I haven’t had a soda in months, though I suppose adult beverages make up for it.
Without a doubt, the best thing about being home is seeing my dog again.
Today, I drove back to BC to play soccer. We played 9v9 full field in Alumni Stadium, and I left feeling pretty good. I’d scored twice and gotten 3 assists as well. Touch is coming along nicely…I can really start to see progress. I’ll be hitting the gym/cardio pretty hard next week to work off my Independence Day fat+sugar binge.
In the world of the EPL, Arsenal have lost their first player to the transfer market. Gael Clichy has left the Emirates. Hopefully, this is not a sign of things to come from Nasri and Fabregas. If, like me, you need some cheering up, consider this picture of a Red Panda (also known as a Firefox). It is guaranteed to make you feel better.
