wow. practice went like this: we put on running gear, and jogged 1/2 a mile. Then we ran about 2 miles in indian (last guy on the line sprints to the front). We ran back inside, and put on wrestling gear. we drilled for about 30mins and learned new moves/did some live matches for about an hour. then we did some heavy drills.. this is where i almost died. we did the 6pt drill, right left shoot sprawl get up and roll w/o stopping for a while.. same with long pushups and abs. so practice went from 2:30 to 5:00. we changed abit, then went to the weight room and stayed there till 5:30. Overall, i was pretty beat.. i def. have to work on my endurance on those drills. running wasnt that bad, i ran about 2-3 times a week for 2 months before wrestling. Hopefully this was just the first day, and i'll get used to it. Though i do feel abit overtrained, and i think the coach is going overboard with the lifting after practice.. everyone comes in exhausted and i dont think it helps your muscles at all doing it after such a practice. Ok one major problem. http://www.sportsauthority.com/prod...=1306778&cp=2017929.2017931&parentPage=family those are my kneepads. While i was doing shots, the pads kept moving and i had to keep adjusting them even though they were tight on my knees. the big problem though is they did more damage than good. I have like a skin rash (not sure how to call it) in the middle of my knee. I guess from it sliding around. What can i do? When i just took a shower it hurt like hell. I hope it doesnt get worse tomarrow, and i wont be able to shoot at all. What kind of other kneepads can i get? them being huge might be a problem, like ninja turtle pads.. Second, so what can i do to deal with my lack of energy on some of those endurance drills? For breakfast i have oatmeal w/ milk and a multivitamin. Lunch was a tuna sandwich (but cafeteria tuna, ie mayo in it). Breakfast being at 6:30 and lunch 12:00-12:30 with the practice starting at 2:30. During the practice i just had alittle bit of water. So how can i fix my lunch? should i just try to eat more? throw in granola bar in there or something? And during practice should i mix my water with some apple juice/gatorade/gen-c?
