Scheduling Mishaps

Ardi had moved the Thursday evening training for the kids to Today and since the field is a shared one with people as old as 60, we had one of those “I have the right to be inside, not YOU” talks with the others. And honestly it’s all an organizing issue because the club president […]

A Restart In Trainings

And so, yeah. After missing the Tuesday unofficial training and being sick for the past two days, I did get to today’s training. Finally. Training went pretty good, except that I couldn’t have my very very best, even though it was pretty normal still. Ardi also helped KMP first team in their trainings as assistant […]

You Make Me Sick!

(Talking to poisonous summer foods) And yes, I was badly sick today and couldn’t go and run or do anything until afternoon. In fact couldn’t do them until 19:30, but when I did it was at least in a park designed for running so it was cool and stuff. 20 minutes of running with a […]

Come… ON!

I missed today’s morning unofficial KMP training because Ardi said there wouldn’t be any — and there was! Also the trainings I would be joining are said to be starting the next week. I hope that’s true. And more importantly, I hope I make it in the said trainings. At least now we got an […]

Harder Than Ever

Today I had a personal training — of course with another person who’s also trying to enter a team’s try outs. It lasted more than 2 and a half hours, with 45 minutes of it being pure running. Then as usual, back to home for a break, as I was tired double or triple the […]

A Much Needed Break

We paid attention to a very important thing today: Taking a break after a long week. Of course I didn’t skip my daily running and training. Even though in fact I skipped with a rope and moved up my personal record with it. Then was time for big long running near the beach — though […]

Photo Shooting And Beyond

Morning at about 11:15 was when I arrived at Uzun Yusuf. Only to do 10 laps of fast paced running and then practicing my long range shots. And thankfully, it helped a lot. Also beating Fatih in the accuracy challenge. An hour later Ardi called and told me to go to Namik Sevik, where he […]

Everybody’s Somewhere

Day started with me heading to Uzun Yusuf for a scheduled 1 or 2 hour training with Nuri and Mustafa. Mustafa didn’t show up and Nuri only showed up an hour late. Training involved trying to hit the top bar (with me winning from both near and long distance), penalty shoot-outs and finally running with […]

Just A Simple Training

It seemed like everyone was tired today, with me having played an hour last night and others helping Kazim the coach move houses. Well, at least the penalty shoot-outs competitions I did with others were fun. I won, of course. Then for the kids training, everything was at an all-time best as the matter of […]

Just A Game

Morning was about going to Vatan park for a short 20 mins training. Meanwhile Ardi was KMP bound and their game started 10 minutes before I arrive there. They beat Davutpasha by 2 goals. Then we went back home for a retreat to come back at 9 pm for our game in Uzun Yusuf. Ardi […]
