My beginner training and game tonight was a tough one. I skated hard all through practice, even though some of the drills weren’t structured toward goalies. It just made me realize that although I feel that I am in good condition, I really am not. I play a lot of hockey, but when it comes to endurance, I could improve that a great deal I think. The game was pretty good. I stopped some pretty good shots, but I still let 2 in at the end of the day. Not a bad effort, but I feel I could play a bit better than that.
So now, here I sit, listening to Bowling for Soup and relaxing before I hit the sack for the night. This is the way things are for me after a hockey game. Relaxed, a little tired, but still a little wired after the rush of playing. I may move over to the NHL ESPN 2005 hockey game on the Xbox and then get in bed by 1am. Tomorrow is always a little tough after about 6 hours of sleep. I still think playing hockey is worth it.
