Game today - was feeling skeptical about my shoulder but it actually felt better by the end of the game.
Turned up and they only had 11 players - which means an automatic win for us. We gave them some of ours to make up the numbers, and played two 30 minute halves - basically used it as a training session to run our moves and have a fun runaround. Non-contested scrums, which helped my shoulders out no end - they didn’t struggle with contact though.
We ended up winning 68-0 - we were fitter and faster and a better unit overall. I ran one in on the wing which was hilarious as prop - didn’t know how to plant the ball when I’m not busy getting tackled so just did a sort of pathetic flop to one side.
Recap for the week - still bad at taking daily weights but they’ve all crept up above 96kg again - need to get that under control. Bad diet and not as much cardio as I was doing when I lost most of my weight. Weights all feeling a bit hard - will claim a combination of being generally run down and a bit stressed with work, and the shoulder. Good solid squat at 200kg (not sure if the video worked), and bench is coming back, but warmup weights have moved easier and for more reps a few times in the last couple of months.
