Cricket Classic catches- Video of the week

Everyone for this weeks video of the week I choose something Matt and I have talked about to do our self maybe not to this extreme but something similar

My favourite catch and one I would like to attempt is the first with him diving to his right and getting it one handed it is probably one of the hardest catches to attempt and make it’s because it can fall short and hit the ground or when you take the catch and come back down on you arm it can fall out of you hand but you can also injure your shoulder if you don’t fall properly on to the ground from taking the catch.

The catch I like is the guy jumping to get it and palming it down to the other guy and him having to dive to get the ball

My favourite ever classic catch came in last year BBL from the Adelaide strikers I really enjoyed it because of how much effort Ben Laughlin had to do when running to get the catch but also make sure he doesn’t fall over the Boundary rope and also Jake Weatherald backing him up by also running in and trying to stop a boundary in Ben wasn’t able to get catch and drop it.

but how hard must of that been for Ben to make the catch and throw it back 30 mitres to the running Weatherald to slow down and help his teammate with the catch and help his team.

thanks for reading and if you would like to see Matt and I attempt some of these or do some of our own I would like to hear from you

until next time

What I think about The Bend Circuit

Everyone with it only being just over 50 days to the V8 Supercars hit the new circuit The Bend Motorsport Park in SA I would give you my thought on it.

You can see a picture of what the track layout will be when the V8 Supercar drivers will be driving around it in just a little under two months time. It’s the first time there is going to be two Supercars events in South Australia in the same year.

the orange outline is the track they will be racing on, it is 4.95 km making it the second longest track behind Bathurst. This is going to be a hard track for the drivers as its a new track and most of them wouldn’t have driven it before. The drivers will do a walk around like they do at every track but they will be looking at the apexes on all the corners where they think the best driving line is and where the best overtaking spots are. I reckon probably one of the best overtaking spots are is the corner into a chicane after the long straight and also the corner coming onto the straight as well.

The Bend Motorsport Park are also trying to win the hosting rights to hold the Australian MotoGP round there if they can, if the Australian MotoGP were to go somewhere else I believe it will go here as it is a very new circuit and I like the GP in Melbourne but I would like to see it at a different track. If it was to host the Australian MotoGP it will give the riders and new track to race on that they haven’t before and give them a different type of race all together.

Do you think this is going to be a good circuit for the drivers and the teams and will it stay for a long time in the supercars series. Also what would be your favourite corner on the track

Until next time

Fitness Update Day 6,7&8

Well its been a crazy few days, along day at work Friday where I took a short lunch time walk and then created a whole heap of short 10 minute walks throughout the day, which was great to get me close to that 10k goal (which I fell short of) but it also made my day at work that bit longer which was a little frustrating. You can see from the screenshot from my phone I got with 900 steps 440 metres of my goal and hit the 3k calorie goal which is great from a weight loss point of view.

From there Saturday was huge with my football comeback being over for the time being with the D grade team being pulled from the comp due to a lack of player numbers as a result of injuries such as my hamstring I decided to start the morning with a walk/run. The running didn’t get me very far and showed just how unfit I am, I think I lasted about 2-3 mins which is pathetic but its a base to build up from I guess. All up I walked for just over an hour which put me on about 8,000 steps and it was only about 11am great start to the day. From there I took both my girls for short individual walks and by the time that was done I was at over 10k and I hadn’t even had lunch. From there that is where the fun begins I purchased 3 tonnes of loam for my backyard, sounds simple right get a wheel barrow and move it down to the backyard not easy but not hard. That would have been great except I have a split level home which makes a wheel barrow very difficult to use. from there my walk ways around my house are very narrow once you take into account the window seals and air conditioner unit so by the bucket load it is. after almost 2 hours of filling bucket loads and walking them the 30 metres down the backyard up and down the stairs I was spent and had only made a small dent in the 3 tonne loam pile but the Fitbit results speak for themselves

Sunday more loam to move, a big thanks to Kieran for coming to help for 3-4 hours helping me move just half the pile of loam getting a nice loam layer over about 60% of my backyard, more up and down the stairs but the killer for me that day was my sloped driveway after a few hours that 4-5 metre driveway felt like it went for about 20 metres the legs, especially the ankles could really feel it and are still feeling it today but the job was getting done I was saving money and getting a whole heap of much needed exercise. From there on the drive to drop Kieran home we stopped and smashed out some Pokemon Go raids and hit a whole heap of Poke stops and catching a few Pokemon.

I am taking it easy today due to some serious ankle soreness before planning to spend another couple of hours moving loam tomorrow afternoon after work before the rain hits in the coming days.
