A couple of the players have asked me if I would actually practice at practice - doing the drills, etc. - instead of simply standing around, so I thought I would practice a bit on my own first.
Let me say that those warm up drills are not as easy as they look! I'll try them again this afternoon and see how I do, though I'm not expecting any real improvement. Who would have thought that passing a ball from one foot to the other and back again would be so difficult!
I doubt very much I'll do the ball drills at practice - there's no need to make myself look completely fooish, is there - but I might start running with them. Now's as good a time as any to get in shape, I suppose.
