Last night, I was able to play for another team during the 10pm time. What a rush! They knew how to place the ball, run plays. Now, I'm not a very good soccer player, but it was really fun to play with them. Yes, it was much more serious play, but it felt great to be playing as part of a well-working machine.
During the 9pm game, I managed to run right into another player. Sorry, Nancy.
The one problem I face with continuing to play soccer, is that it leaves my ankles in bad shape. Last year, I almost did not play the second season because it was affecting my training. My plan for this year had been to only play until Christmas, then drop so I could focus on running in the new year. So far, I'm playing more soccer and running less.
