Hi to all the squash players out there - As a guy in my early 50's and attempting to play at the highest level I have ever played at state 3 in Adelaide I am having difficulty in peaking for matches. I play in the country on a Tuesday night and am having great difficulty in backing up and playing well on the Wednesday night. Wed nights I tend to be flat and lack power. I have played so badly Wed nights that I sometimes consider giving it all away - but come Friday night the power's back , the speed and run is back and everything is good. I don't want to give up Tues night comp as it's very social and lots of very good wine and food - but I don't overdo the social aspect. I am reasonably fit and when fresh play OK. The standard of players at State 3 is certainly not out of my league and it's very frustrating to lose to players that I know that if I played them on a Tues night I would do so much better. So how do you older guys back up and play well two nights in a row - I would love to know. How to add images to Members' Forum posts and replies here...
