"The webmaster's daily battle to improve his Squash and achieve his goals."
Well, the battle has continued to be daily, but unfortunately i have not had the time to share it with you.
Knowing that you will have been extremely disappointed with this, i have finally found some time to share this battle with you.
I better make it clear that I am not promising that i will be any more regular than annual which has been my recent average. This could be either a good or a bad thing.
The past twelve months or so have bought a number of challenges, the biggest of which was a complete frustration at not beng able to play as soon as it was inportant to do so.
Playing weaker players, i played like a genius, but as soon as i had to play anyone any good, I could not even hit the front wall.
To say i was frustrated would be a complete understatement.
Sometimes i would be playing ok, then without warning, i could barely swing the racket, so choked up was I.
There was no enjoyment at all being in that situation, so i decided to give all competition away for a while.
I think it made a difference to my enjoyment of the game as i was only playing to enjoy it and for no other reason.
I was doing some drills, which i enjoy a lot, but the only trouble was, that after 6 months, i put on an extra 7 kilos.
Not good when I was already feeling like an overweight slug beforehand.
Fortunately it appears i have turned the corned on the weight front and have finally started to lose it again, but it does not come easily.
So whilst i will continue to carry around th extra sack of potatoes for a few weeks yet, at least my return to competition Squash has felt a little different - a bit more relaxed and free.
The biggest shok is now having to compete for every point and every rally - not being able to take a little snooze in the middle of a game knowing that it does not really matter.
This season, we have a very good competition standard for a regional centre so hopefully the better attitude, coupled with the better level of competition will bring out some stronger squash.
Would love to hear if anyone is experiencinig similar problems and what you tried to overcome it..
cheers for now!How to add images to Members' Forum posts and replies here...
