I’m back in Sydney after a great couple of days in Melbourne catching up with friends and watching footy at Etihad stadium.
Unfortunately the GWS Giants were not able to end high-flying Essendon’s winning streak and bring the first defeat to them this season even though the Giants played really great 1st and 2nd quarters and were in front at half time.
Essendon had a great 3rd quarter and after that it seemed like everything just worked their way and they ended up winning 120-81.
Monday started at 8am for the boys who didn’t play on the weekend with a training session at the new training ground Tom Wills oval (he was a 19th-century sportsman who is considered one of the pioneers of the sport of Australian rules football). Afterwards we had a short pool session and then we headed back to the club for review of the Essendon match and weight’s training.
Adam Kennedy and I were invited to dinner at Nick Walsh’s (fitness trainer at the club) and we had a really good evening with him and his girlfriend.
Tuesday was a day off so I spent the day looking around in Sydney and catching up with a friend of mine. A good relaxing day so I’m ready for a great day of training tomorrow.
