    Hockey

    We were short defencemen last night so I dropped back again. The team we played was better than the one we played a few weeks ago and it was interesting to see how sloppy our forwards were from the viewpoint of a defenseman. They were very lazy in the neutral zone and allowed a lot of odd-man rushes and undefended rushes by the other team. As a result the defence got hammered pretty hard all game. I was feeling okay but the other defensive pair was completely gassed by the third period. I think we would have faired better if i had stayed at center since I focus a lot on chasing guys down and slowing their progress through the neutral zone.

    The other issue was that with all of the changes to our team we didn't have much offensive punch. We had a decent amount of shots but not too many scoring chances. It was a testament to our defensive play and our goalie that we only lost 3-2. It's not bad that we lost since it improves the odds that we will stay in this division which gives us a better chance at winning the season.

    Conditioning

    20 minutes on the treadmill, 10 minutes on the elliptical. Average HR 131.

    Did some random chins with two dips in between for 8 minutes. Used different grips, transitioned between them, did a few sets of 3 etx

    C2 rower, dynamic stretching

    - Squats
    45x8
    65x5
    95x5
    115x3
    135x3
    165x3
    195x2
    225x1
    245x1
    255x1
    +Belt
    265x1

    Felt pretty good. Maybe had 275 in me but didn't want to push it since my.ability to judge is rusty. Added the belt simply because the squat comp in the main says you can't add equipment later.

    - Strict Press
    45x5
    45x5
    65x3
    75x2
    85x1
    95x1
    105x1
    110x1

    Last two were pretty sloppy so 110 is definitely my max. Not bad considering my all-time PR is 140.

    Hockey

    The team we played were bumped up from the division below us after going 3-0 to start the season so we knew they would be a decent team. They skated and passed well but didn't have any standout players. We were had a bunch of guys show up late so the beginning of the game was a bit of a mess. Our opponents controlled a lot of the play but didn't get any great chances. Eventually a few more of our players arrived and things evened out.

    The first period ended 0-0 but we scored in the first minute of the second period to make it 1-0. The period continued the same as the first, with our opponents probably controlling a bit more of the play but my team getting more chances. We book-ended the period by scoring to make it 2-0 in the last minute.

    Our opponents came out aggressive in the third, scoring quickly to make it 2-1 and then keeping it up to go up 3-2 within 4 minutes. A few minutes later we scored to tie it 3-3 and that completely changed the tide. We started to match our opponents aggression and the game got pretty chippy and we managed to control the play. With a few minutes left in the game we scored back to back goals to go up 5-3.

    Overall it was a fun game. Our opponents were pretty aggressive and it took us a while to get up to the same level. Really the game shouldn't have been so close as two of our top scorers had multiple breakaways and didn't bury their chances. I had a pretty good game but only came away with one assist. That has been our story so far this season. Our defense and goaltending has been good but we're aren't scoring as much as we have in the past. Next week's game is against the last place team so that might give us an offensive boost.

    Got to the gym late so did a quick 25 minutes of intervals on the treadmill. Slow was 3.1, fast was 7.7, 1 minute on/1 minute off. Average HR was 119.

    Hockey

    Playing the last place and team and we controlled most of the game. My line scored two goals in the middle of the second and it looked like we might blow them out but their goalie stood on his head and kept it close. There was no scoring in the second and they scored early in the third period to make it 2-1. That woke us up and took control of the game again, putting in two more goals (one by me) to win 4-1.

    This game really highlighted our lack of scoring this season. We controlled play and had some chances but didn't bury much. We have a two weak skaters who play wing so those lines really depend on the other winger and the center driving action but this summer that's not happening as much. My line had a good game though as we were constantly all over the other team and scored 3 of the 4 goals.

    The rest of last week was a write-off. I worked from home Tues/Fri and had a ridiculous amount of meeting Wed/Thurs.

    Hockey

    Sunday it was hot as hell and I was outside for about half the day. In the morning I took my son to a splash pad and when he went home for his nap I spent two hours scrubbing and washing my deck. In the afternoon I took my son and we did some shopping and then made dinner together.

    All that said, somehow I had a tonne of energy for hockey. I buzzing around the ice in the first period and had a bunch of chances but couldn't bury anything. The team we were playing was tied with us for first place so it was an even game. Late in the first period they scored two quick goals to go up 2-0. In the second period they scored to make it 3-0 but we quickly answer to make it 3-1. However our opponents started to control a lot of the game. By the end of the second I realized that we needed to cover just two of their forwards to shut down their offense. As the center I was covering the center of the ice but these two guys kept digging pucks out of the corners, beating our defense or wingers and getting good chances coming off the side boards.

    In the third period I basically shadowed their leading scoring and shut him down. Midway through the period we scored make it 3-2 and from there we kept the pressure on for the rest of the game. Their goalie played well though and we couldn't get the tying goal so we lost 3-2 in the end.

    Overall it was a fun game and a hell of a workout. I'm having a decent season with 3 G, 4A in 7 games. When I woke up on Monday morning I weighed 187.1 which I chalked up to still being dehydrated.

    Conditioning

    5 minutes of walking on the treadmill then ran 5k in 32:07. Not bad considering it's been over a month since I've done a 5k. Afterwards I did 10 minutes of chins and dips. For the chins I did strict reps, partial hangs, switcihng grips etc and then 2-3 dips.

    Weight yesterday morning was 189.3 so it's possible I'm actually below 190 now.
