And today is the day exhaustion sets in. After traveling to Montpellier (2 hours north I think) yesterday for a doctor’s appointment, and a long lift and practice today. I am beyond tired. But on the plus side, it was a beautiful day today, I finally have a roommate and tomorrow is Friday! So after a morning run, I only have one more full practice left. My body finally ran out of steam this afternoon, and my brain quickly followed. The first time I have gotten super frustrated during practice since I have been here. Nothing that I am learning is really knew, but I’m definitely shaking off some cobwebs. Mais, c’est la vie! You have to take baby steps back to move forwards.
The language barriers make some drills, that should be simple a little bit harder. But that is all part of it, I suppose. I’m looking forward to a light practice Saturday and some much needed R&R Saturday night and Sunday. I was going to try to take a train up north this weekend, but that will have to wait.
So glad to finally another American to talk to! It is SO nice. Even though I like trying to speak mostly French, it’s comforting to have someone else here from the States.
We got our jerseys today for the scrimmage, and I somehow ended up with #11! They are last year’s jerseys we are using until our new ones come in, but I was ecstatic when they handed me my number. So fingers crossed it is the same for the new ones as well.
Dinner, Orange is the New Black, then off to bed for me. The early bird gets the worm. Pictures to come soon of the jerseys (when I’m not feeling so lazy I don’t want to get up and get my phone haha).
