ok so once again I’m really sorry about the lack of an update in a while. This may have been one of the most stressful weeks of my life. I had tests, quizzes, lots of homework, and PSATs. But anyway I’ll start with monday because I can’t remember too much before that.
[/b] 10-11-10[b]: Threw for about 2 hours with my friend Samuel today. We worked on a lot of fielding as well which I am absolutely terrible at. The pop-flys still scare me on the way down, gotta work on it. Got home, stayed up till 4 cramming for a test and a quiz.
[/b]10-12-10[b]: A little sore from yesterday. Couldn’t stay awake during any of my classes and I did abysmally on my test and quiz. Anyway, after school no one was in the weight room so I had a fantastic work out. I never realized I could get so focused when no one else is there. Tried squating for the first time since May today and it hurt my back like crazy. Other than that, I did some arm stuff. Found out that we start our little 3-man practices Thursday so I’m super-excited. Plan on taking wednesday off because I have a psat and I know it’s gonna leave me completely drained.
[/b]10-13-10[b]: Felt really rested going into the psat but coming out of it I felt terrible. It lasted about 3 hours and it’s really hard for me to keep concentrated on anything for that long. I thought it was pretty easy though. Didn’t workout today because of baseball tmrw and because I was in desperate need of some sleep.
[/b]10-14-10[b]: First baseball practice today. For the first 20mins, we threw to loosen our arms. Some of the guys haven’t played since last season while I’ve been playing every weekend so I’m beating most in that department. Hitting however is just not my forte. It was my first time ever picking up a bat and for about an hour one of the coaches worked with me on hitting. He told me I had a lot of potential because after I got the correct stance down I had about 12 good hits in a row. At first the whole motion just felt awkward to me but after a while it felt a lot less weird. Got home and as I’m typing this, it’s hard for me to lift my right arm very far. I think I may have pulled a muscle or something. My right arm and both of my shoulders hurt like crazy. I’m gonna take some advil and take it easy for the rest of the night.
Fall break is coming up this weekend and I don’t have too much homework so as soon as I’m less sore I’ll be able to get out there and throw. I can probably update you guys more often now since I’m off from school for a while.[/b]
