Ultimate Catchup

In my last ultimate post, I mentioned something about shutting things down to give my body a rest. Well, that didn't happen. In the last 11 days, I've played ultimate in 8 of them. I'm pretty sore but it's been a lot of fun. Finally getting a long stretch of nice weather has been a big help. And speaking of the weather, all of this rain that we've had over the last several months has accelerated the process of destroying my cleats. Not only was it almost impossible to dry them out with less than 24 hours between games at times, but my aggressive style has caused me to bust several holes in them. This pair barely lasted 6 months...

JavaOne Podcast

communitycornerAbout a month ago I spent a week in San Francisco for JavaOne 2009. One of the activities that I participated in there was the java.net Community Corner where I recorded a podcast on Project Darkstar. Well, the podcast is now up on the java.net site for download and it turned out really nice! It's available for download here.

Ultimate Status

My left hamstring is becoming a pain in the ass (quite literally). My body is not holding up well to the five consecutive days per week schedule. In the past two weeks I've missed two BUDA games due to my ailing hamstring, as well as a couple Burlington pickup games. I still managed to average one game every two days though (go figure).

At some point I may need to shut things down for a few weeks. We'll see...
