Hope everyone had a very Happy Easter!!!! I know I did! We were given 4 days off from training, Good Friday – Easter Monday. I was planning to get out and enjoy what Melbourne had to offer. Lucky for me a good friend of my mine permanently moved down to Melbourne earlier that week. We were able to catch up over dinner and check our first live game of AFL. Essendon vs Port Adelaide.
The game was great; the crowd was enthusiastic leading to a fantastic Saturday afternoon. I was also able to check out the Queen Victoria Markets, which were amazing, soo much to see and taste. The rest of the days off were filled with some much needed relaxation, as well as checking out more of the local cafes before returning to our next big training block.
This training block will see us moving into our next phase. With only a couple of National League games left before heading to Finals in late April. As the National League is completed at the end of April this will be followed by an overseas trip to either the Olympic test event in London, and/or World league rounds in Japan and China. This block will also see us staying in Shanghai for 2 weeks for training rather than return home, before World League Finals (also in China).
Come Monday afternoon all national squad members will be flying into Sydney for a 5 day camp, finishing off with the All-Star game in Canberra on Saturday. This game will see me playing for the South side, along with the rest of the Tigers girls, Freo, UNSW, Adelaide, UWA and Drummoyne. Will be a very interesting game....
