Haven’t been posting for a few days, and I apologise for that. Thought I could go through the weekends happenings with you all. Saturday we had a big game at home against Apollon. They are top of the league with 1 point ahead of us. How the game ended 2-2 I will never know. We dominated the game for the full 90 min. More possession and more chances. Being 1-0 and 2-1 up it was very disappointing not getting all 3 points. We conceded a penalty for the first goal and a they got a lucky second. We created so many chances to put the game to bed. We played some really good stuff. We were aggressive, we showed passion and we pressed them. Everything the coach wanted us to do and that we have worked for since he took over the team. What made it better was that the supporters were very good and I am sure they could see how well we played. If we keep playing like this I’m sure the Championship will be a fight to the end. I was so tired when I got home that I spent all night on the sofa with some films, Poker online and Skype with my wife as she is in Norway at the moment. Can’t sleep after games so I went to bed around 4.30 in the morning.
Sunday was early training. On recovery days I like to push my body in the gym. I really work hard on my upper body on recovery days. Those who played the game did some core work before we had some football tennis. Young vs old, obviously the old team won:) What also is my typical recovery day is Sauna and ice bath. I’m a really big fan of doing sauna a few times a week, combined with ice bath. Getting home I did absolutely nothing! Sunday is for me a lazy day!!! Played some poker while watching The first tournament of The Norwegian Championship of Poker online.
Today was a day off for the team. That didn’t stop me from doing something. I went with the fitness coach and played 2 hours of tennis and did some TRX upper body work. I feel that I am in very good shape at the moment and I want to keep going. I worked very hard over the last 5-6 months to get to the point where I feel i’m 100%.
Less than a week until a dream comes true again, return to Anfield!! Seeing great friends, former team mates and great opponents. I can also give you a tease: My wife will put something on her blog tomorrow that I am 100% some of you will really like and take part in 🙂 : louiseangelicariise.com is her blog. Make sure you are updated on that for the next 24 hours!
