I’m in a weird, vacant place right now, and it all revolves around roller derby.
Last Sunday was SRG’s final bout of the season, and it was strangely depressing watching all of the comments feeding through Facebook from my former teammates as they geared up for their final game. I’m not sure if the fact that I wasn’t there to cheer them on was what brought me down, or if it was the fact that their former co-captain just isn’t needed anymore.
I shouldn’t be so blah about it all — it was just days ago that I learned that I am officially a member of the Kansas City Roller Warriors.
But my move has resulted in lots of chaos that has led to minimal practice time, and just as little exercise — and I know that’s a huge part of it.
I’m working on getting back on track. I returned to the gym a couple of weeks ago, and I finally pounded out a 6-mile run last week. Then ankle issues slowed me down tremendously, so I had to force myself into little R&R. Despite the issues I’ve had, something tells me I’ll be myself again soon. It’s just that some days this fact isn’t easy to remember.
I’m curious to know how others deal with these mental and physical funks. Anyone have any advice?
