This morning I woke up a little sore from my workout! All that repetition on my left quad has me walking like a pimp haha! But I didn’t have time to worry about my soreness because I had another workout at 9. In this workout Rachel Allison and my roommate Lindsay Taylor joined us too. We did a lot of spot shooting and worked on some pick-and-roll shooting as well. Once the other two girls left for their physicals, I stayed with coach Jenny and worked on some rhythm dribbles and my pull-up jumper. At the end of our workout she was talking to me about keeping your identity and making sure to just be free when you play because how you are on the court translates to your everyday life. It really means a lot to me that she can take the time out from training and give me advice not only for basketball, but for life too.
After the workout we had to go get our physicals. I seriously have a slight panic attack when it comes to needles haha … I really dislike getting my blood drawn! But I manned up, covered my eyes and got it done! The rest of the afternoon Lindsay and I flipped back and forth between First 48 and Real Housewives of Atlanta! Haha we’re very diverse in our entertainment. Then for dinner we went downtown to The Crab Pot! I have been craving crab legs since before I got home from Israel! They were SO delicious! I definitely will be back :-)
Until next time,
