Anonymous asked: Ahh. That amazing moment when your coach tell you that you have the tightest/best skills in the team and you have only been playin for 3 years! Compared to others players that have been playing for 5 or more! :)
Ah congratulations! Just goes to show it’s not always how long you play that determines your skill level! Keep up the great work :)
lavenderteaplease asked: Fhockey probs - losing amazing foreign exchange students at the end of the season. Love your blog <3
Can’t say I’ve ever had this happen, but it honestly sounds amazing to have someone from another country come and play with you!
And thanks 😚
This summer I’m doing a combination of lifting and running.
I workout 5 days I week. I try to keep the two rest days constant and far from each other (for example i mostly do thursdays and sundays as rest days).
Mostly my running consists of distance since we obviously need to have some serious endurance. I do my 2 mile runs for time on a track, alternating once and twice a week.
I do a lot of 3, 4, 5 mile runs around a local campus, trail, around town.
Other than that, I do sprint work twice a week. The ones my coach gives me varies, but the typical are elevator runs (x5) (up and back starting at 100 and decreasing by 20 yards each time)
Running 100s on a field, even though THEY SUCK.
and then for a track workout I’ll run 400s and 200s for time.
In high school my coach had a sprint workout in which you ran to every single line. So first you do stroke, then top of the circle, 25, 50, 75, opposite circle, opposite stroke line, opposite end. annnnnd then you work your way back down. I think we did one, at most two.
Another we did was called the snake run. You orient yourself in terms of sideline and out of bounds, so you start at a corner of the field (for this example lets say the right corner). You jog across the end(goal) line, and sprint up the out of bounds until you hit the 25 yard line, then you jog across that line, sprint the next out of bounds, etc. We always do there and back, so we would do this about two times there and back.
If you reallllllly want to give yourself a challenge/be awesome, we did this while dribbling. It’ll suck, but you’ll be in shape
Yeah that’s about the basis for the running.
For lifting, I’m doing typical ab work like planks, pushups, V-ups. I’m getting a gym membership and doing the plan my coach has us doing, but you can easily do curls and stuff with dumbbells at home, which I did last summer. I lift 2-3 times a week and do about 3 sets of 10 reps.
So yeah. This is what I do. And then after I run (depending on how hot it is outside) I fhock around. I mostly just work on drives and lifts, but sometimes I can get someone to play with me and we do 1 v 1s.
I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
if I’m going to crank out some fhockey probs this weekend, I’m going to need some help :) pleaaaaase lend me your fhockeyprobs or things fhockers say in my ask box
Anonymous asked: Would you be willing to share the general plan of your summer workout packet for those of us whose summer workouts lack structure and/or would like to avoid dying during preseason?
Oh surely! Once I get settled in at home this weekend I’ll post it.
So now that I’m officially done with school and getting on my summer workout packet grind, let the problems begin again!
