Well it’s been ages since I last blogged anything, so I thought I’d get back into it with something quite easy-going. So here we go…
I’ve been playing a bit of indoor soccer for the last few weeks and I’ve been really enjoying it! I’ve been playing for a team called “Instant Pudding” and… well, we’re getting better!! The guys on our team have some great soccer skills but I think all our fitness is lacking somewhat. But we are getting better! You can view our results for last season here.
Tomorrow I start playing for another team, “Dynamo Needarest”, a team set up by Chris and myself made up of a bunch of Trade Me guys and gals. Should be loads of fun but boy am I gonna be knackered and possibly quite sore after two games a week!
Anyhoo, one of my biggest gripes so far has been the fact that I haven’t been able to find indoor soccer boots in my size. I’ve been playing in my running shoes and although it’s worked out ok, I keep stubbing my big toe when I kick the ball or when I run and stop really fast. That’s not so much fun. However, today, I finally found a pair that fits! A pair of Puma children’s size 5!! Doesn’t matter though, what matters is they fit and they were cheap :) Rebel Sport had quite a good variety today (they didn’t last time I had a look) so I’m very excited about my next game.
Chris also got some new indoor soccer boots today – very nice. I’m sure we’re both gonna play like pros now that we’ve got the right gear (hehe, or not!).
Below is a pic of our hot new shoes.

And below is a photo of what seems to happen to me pretty much every game. Even though I play in a social league, there are some guys on the teams we play against that play real hard. Their high-powered kicks always seem to send the ball straight at me. On the bright side, I’ve saved a few goals for my team!! :|
