UPDATE: Re: My Name is Fluffy!
Currently, I'm on the derby girl training team: Crash Test Hunnies. On the down-side, I'm not allowed to scrimmage unless asked to join in the jam. On the up-side, my monthly dues are reduced $5 while on CTH.
Here's the plan:
I skate my ass off (literally and figuratively) for 6 weeks. In mid-September, my endurance will be assessed. At that time, if I am where the coaching staff think I should be, I will be placed back with my bouting team, the Main Street Mafia. This will be in time for the first bout on October 1.
I'm quite ok with this plan. I intend to be at every practice: Sunday morning land drills followed by Derby Church, Monday night's CTH practice, Wednesday session skate and watching bouting skater practice afterwards - fully dressed-out just in case they want me to jump in, and Saturday morning broom ball at Unity Park in Highland Village. On Tuesdays and Thursdays I'm doing land drills plus 45-60 minutes of cycling on my own - or with fellow North Texas Derby Revolution girls. I'd also like to incorporate some time at a weight machine - like at Memorial Park Rec Center. I haven't checked it out yet, to see what they have, but if I can do some quad and hamstring strengthening exercises, especially for this left leg, I need to do it.
Everyone who knows has been SO supportive. All the coaching staff that I've spoken with, have responded, even without prompting, "Fluffy, we're going to do everything we can to get you where you need to be." Not ONE person has come out to say, "You suck and shouldn't be here." It's a little overwhelming, the love and support I'm getting. I can't say I've really ever known it, other than what good friends give. But these people are phenomenal.
I thought I would be so embarrassed, but I'm not. It is what it is, and they're all trying to help me over it. I told my Mafia girls that if they see me slacking or in need of encouragement they should yell, "OCTOBER" at me.
So that's where it stands. I have the opportunity, it's just a matter if I can pull this off in 6 weeks!
