I’ve never played the sport, although I admire those that do, both male and female. Several of my friends husbands play, several of my new friends play, I’ve trained almost a dozen of them, and well there’s a lot to consider. It takes a good amount of endurance, speed and agility, and strength. It takes passion, accountability, dedication to hard work and a touch (or more) of nutrition and recovery.
Speed and agility today, practice tomorrow, conditioning the next, and game day to follow, yikes! It’s almost as if these players have a part time job, oh wait… they do.
The demands of a chosen sport are real, it’s not some sort of Nancy game you decide to just partake in. As with all sports, you need to be serious at times, you need to focus, you need to train, you need to practice, and you need to develop your skills, among many other things.
How do you balance the demands of life, your work, your home, your play with your sport? For those who are passionate and serious you find a way, for those who are not one area begins to slack. Balance is key, and your success is how much you put into it.
