It’s finally started. I must be getting old.. I am finally getting a bit burned out on playing Ultimate. Granted, I am playing a TON, with 2 nights a week of Outdoor Pickup, one night a week of indoor, Winter league on Saturdays and 3 days a week of “off-season” lifting all taking time up. But I am starting to notice that I just don’t have as much fun. Some of it is standards.. I am trying to learn from some of the folks I played with at Nationals last year and realize that every time I step on the field, I should be working towards being better. That’s easy in the gym, knowing that while all I am currently doing is making myself sore for a few days after every session, the payoffs come tryout/tourney time will be well worth it (at the minimum in injury prevention). But on the field, it gets flat out tiring to try to hold yourself up to a high standard.. and then, (as it’s EARLY in the year) when you of course fail, it just makes it that much harder to consider what’s happening to be fun.
Obvious solution: start to play a bit less, focus on the gym work while cutting back a ton of the shear volume of disc being played. We’ll see if that helps at all.
