Last night’s twice-a-week scrimmage went awfully for my team and me. As a team, we couldn’t finish well, our passes were always a step off, and we made a series of stupid mistakes. Personally, I ended up with three goals in our 11-5 loss, but only one of them is worth noting (a volley off my left foot). I blew way more opportunities to score, and was frustrated throughout the whole game by my lackluster performance.
The one good thing I took from the game was my speed. I was the quickest one out there by the end of the game, able to put on a quick burst in the final minutes when everyone else lagged back. I’m taking the day off from any type of workout today, trying to give my legs a break. I had been hitting the gym with a lot more vigor leading up to last night, and I think tiredness may have contributed to my bad night.
