Schweaty Czech

Last night's practice was a good one for me. I tried harder, and I didn't let it get to me if a drill went bad. It was also better because Linda (the other coach, whom I hadn't met yet) was there, and that meant that we could split up into two groups and do half-ice drills. Why is this better? Because (a) there's less standing around when there's a smaller group of people, and (b) the coach can give feedback about what we're doing without stopping the drill because s/he's standing right next to you.

I was hoping that Al would be able to take a little video and/or still shots of the practice while watching The Beaner at the same time (ha!), but he wasn't able to find a legal parking spot outside the rink, so he had to stay with the car. Instead he handed the camera to me over the glass while we were in the middle of the Czechoslovakian Drill. We did it quite slowly, but it was still a fast drill in general, and once we added a backchecker, I could barely get my breath between runs, much less shoot any decent video. Still, I did get this:

It was a fun drill to do; in fact, I can't think of a drill we did last night that wasn't fun. And I left the ice incredibly hot and sweaty, which is always a good sign. :)

Hey - I played for the Freeze last year! Tell Jill and Linda and Jo that Megan (with a long e) says hi. :) And interestingly enough, we did that drill in practice last night too...
