Let's Say It's Game Day

Let's just say it is game day. For some of you it may not be but I'm just saying it is anyway.Hopefully last night you got some good sleep and this morning you had a good breakfast. Your going to need it when the track turns into hostile territory this evening. Sometime around noon it will be a good idea to go out and get a nice light jog in. Definitely don't forget to stretch. Off to the game early I suspect. With a sport this good how can you not get amped to get there asap. Another quick stretch and a good, short warm up. What i mean here is that a warm up should elevate your heart rate and you should break a sweat but a warm up should not be any true exertion. This will help you get to the first jam and it's all up to you from there. Best of luck!!!


P.S. If you have any favorite pregame rituals or superstitions feel free to share. Generally these things crack me up!


  1. Ooh, I'm just learning to skate - can I invent one to become my superstition now?

    Hmm. Maybe I have to completely unlace my skates, then re-do them fresh just before the bout.

  2. Anyone have any good pre-game or pre-practice foods? I've tried a couple of different things, but I normally end up starving before the end of practice. Currently I'm doing toast and veggie sausage patties and I'm not convinced they're the best ....

  3. something with a little more substance will help. Try adding oats,either in a granola bar or oatmeal. Nuts are also good sources of energy along with fruit. If that doesn't work, try pancakes. They will stick with you.
