I made the game-winning 3 ag him and he said, &quot;That&#39;s the only shot he made all game.&quot; Then next game he spoke of me making it in his face. I then proceeded to make several shots including the game-winning 3 where he failed to guard me. He&#39;s a player, not a baller. Guarded me hard one time, but inconsistent effort and when he failed a few shots he was out of it. Practiced disc distance at Bluffdale park with Thorin.<br /> <br /> Wed - Off work early, to Roots, soreness in foot after throwing there, and 2 ball nites. Again a little late, lost to Dallin and tall Bingham friend, they hardly had to try. I was matched with long 3 takers. I played well after getting warm, Dallin stole once, bad turnovers at first. One game w Dallin, he passed to me for mid-range. Knee-brace guy came in and stomped it, 3s from the right side like rain. Got on his team and aces. Also last game to 15 he passed to me for the open walk-off 3.<br /> <br /> &nbsp;</p> Wed, 04 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Mar 31, 2018 http://jhorn.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-31-2018.html <p>Tue - run/bike with Nate, 3.5m overlook around, biked with Thorin for an hour</p> <p>Ball - w/ speedy, won most games, Birthday present for me, all wins I thought.</p> <p>Wed - lightning for ball, not enuf players.

Watching 2 guys easily put it out there, still don&#39;t feel like I get my timing right, reach back, side-plant, pull foot, hips, torso, shoulders, elbow, wrist, full follow-through. Grip it and rip it. 1m<br /> <br /> Park peri with wind, wind-up and go. 2.5m<br /> <br /> Tue - Got on Speedy&#39;s team, he can still accelerate in the end games, made my shots, didn&#39;t force it, guarded by younger, darker, quick guy. He could get around me but always seemed to go right. Got on a team that won 3, then off, good team. Bros, Speedy, me and hustler (saw at DG b4). Saw 2 guys from small ward haven&#39;t seen in 2 years.<br /> <br /> Wed - Me, general and tall fundamental ag young regulars, finally beat them. I had some good shots, mid-range, fake to 3. Also won one w short smart guys, I provided the offense, but I also pushed it outnumbered and o/c, got to push and pause, find the shot/pass/drive. 3m<br /> &nbsp;</p> Wed, 21 Mar 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Mar 17, 2018 http://jhorn.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-17-2018.html <p>Short run around park before DG. 1.5m<br /> <br /> Longer run around park, across to St. Matt&#39;s, 2m, DG<br /> <br /> Ball on Tue, one brother said I was MVP, made two 3s, layup, finding my flow. Wed no 70th regulars, went by Nate&#39;s, double full house, athletic and fast. Made my first shot as point guard, played pretty good D, held my own but the last game the guy I was guarding gave a look and I knew he thought he could take me, and I played well but he made the game winning 3 while I was on him. I should have known. 3m<br /> <br /> Skiing on Thu at Brighton, good workout but lost my phone. Fun with cousins, felt good, not totally flowy on the blacks, newer skis would help, but the snow was great, enjoying Sean Grooms and Grace pole-less and tired, beautiful life brewing.<br /> <br /> &nbsp;</p> Sat, 17 Mar 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Mar 08, 2018 http://jhorn.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-08-2018.html <p>Took a week off to rest my foot. Biked w Nate, taking Thorin to JRP past old house. 1hr, Thorin held up well. Once went NE on bike past police academy and Tracy&#39;s parents house, townhouse brick fence jump, back on 36th. 1:15<br /> <br /> Didn&#39;t ball or disc for a week, foot feels better.<br /> <br /> Tue - ball at Stake near Arcadia, lost most games against established guys, made a few shots but feeling it out, Speedy had back problems, had one shot from behind the backboard. 1.5<br /> <br /> Wed - working hard, back, arms, wrist, hands get their (over?) workouts. Ball is a late night salve that warms me up again. No young general there, beat the guys with a less athletic but experienced crew, then lost to Dallin. I play him hard and I think he respects it, I&#39;d tell him I like to play against him for the challenge but not for the losing. I did lose the ball twice when the first guy I get by sticks around, blind double team. Made a few backboard lazy spins, then had a game where I missed a 3, a fast break midrange and an easy layup putback. Got the guy to play 3s and 2s to 11 once, but they couldn&#39;t hack it.<br /> <br /> Thu - 1/2 day at work getting Ron and Scott to work, on a day when Mark and Lee were busy with forklife, got them over doing TruckWash on the metal side. Went in a little later to Asian ball (they start at 830) and got half court games, guarded by handsy whacky shooter, talkative and slightly mental. Made a fouled layup, then went to the other side and was shooter Jess, then lost to Carlos and crew, then a full court that must not have been memorable. 1m<br /> <br /> Disced a few but just walking, body feels tight and can&#39;t throw my farthest, I&#39;ll get some smooth throws and I know I still need the technique when I see middle-aged guys throwing like I can&#39;t.<br /> <br /> <br /> &nbsp;</p> Thu, 08 Mar 2018 07:00:00
