That's how it's done
What a game!
Great game, great performance.
Been some pretty good matches this far in the Autumn series. Really great performance by Ireland as well.. wow..
So 2 months ago I had to come off with a really bad shoulder, haven't trained much since, and with christmas, my fitness has tanked. Shoulder is now pretty much OK, though I've got some muscle pain in my armpit (I think), but suspect that's posture related. Played today and went fairly well in the scrums, shoulder held together which is good, bloody knackered though. Initially asked my coach for 20 mins at the end, but he suggested starting so I could come off if needed... Ended up playing 65, came off, then went back on 5 minutes later . Did very little around the pitch, but felt it went well, fitness will hopefully return.
That first game after some time off is always a harsh one. Due to work I've not played much but a few seasons ago I played a game and it took me about 3 days before I could walk properly again
I'm going to ask my teammates if they saw the elephant that tap danced on my leg, because the bruises are clear but i don't remember it!
Tonight/tomorrow will be the worst i suspect. Some ibuprofen before bed to get a good nights rest.
Well done on getting back to it. Tomorrow will be the worst! I should try to plan my return... perhaps pre-season this summer and then start next season again.
That was the point when I retired, when I was also effectively giving up Sunday to rugby because I was still recovering from Saturday.
Third team captain accosted me the other day trying to convince me to play fly-half for them because they don't have a dedicated 10, and they have been promoted and are getting stuffed every weekend right now... not selling it to me!!!
I already give up Sunday to rugby, coaching my boy. Good reason to get out and move a bit, probably helps with recovery.
I coach my son's team now on a Sunday morning, but that started after I'd stopped playing myself.
My wife warned me not to over do it at training... she knows me. New tighthead prop me, decided that I'm the right person to chase down the break in our touch rugby game. To be fair I surprised myself with how well I kept up with the nippy guy, and actually put enough pressure on that he dropped the ball over the line! Pulled my calf in the process though . Still, no game this weekend, so a chance to recover.
Absolutely! The problem was I then made a break about 5 minutes later, so obviously had to try and hit top speed again!
