I played my first game in goal in almost 3 weeks last week on Friday and I was rusty in a 14-7 gunfight. I let in a fair number of bad goals and just felt out of position for most of the game. Ironically, the game I didn’t feel out of position playing was the one I played forward for on Thursday last week. I felt really good and felt I made good passes and plays.
This week, I get another skating out opportunity on Thursday and goalie on Friday.
My motivation to play though is pretty low for some reason. Some people have said I need a break. Others say that it is because of the long layoff. I wish I could answer that question to be honest. I really need to get my motivation back.
Ice hockey may be the thing that gets me back in the saddle. A team called me last week about playing next season from September-April. A long ass season needless to say. I am really looking forward to it though. There will be some late nights, but playing steady on a ice hockey team again instead of just subbing is very attractive to me. It will be a new start for me.
Then what will I do for rollerhockey? Do I drop one of my teams or play 4-5 times a week again? The decision isn’t hard because I am going to need to drop one of my roller teams. I am just trying not to think about it until later this season.
