Underdone...



In the papers this week, the Welsh Coach has said that he has picked Gavin (the chest) Henson for his potential, even if he was a bit "underdone". It is an interesting turn of phrase, that relates to a promise that former glories could be rediscovered, but the current package, is not quite ready.....






To get ready, they will test the Welsh Team with vigor. Freezing temps of -130C (willy protectors, ear protectors, and dont have sweaty feet cos you will stick to the floor) - and then hard punishment in the gym. First, the cold softens the muscles, and then someone straightens out their backs, before a punishing workout - and this is repeated 3 times a day. The results, as seen in the World Cup, awesome fitness, and hard bodies. Not only is the physicality of the week extreme, but in addition, there is the mindnumbing relentless pressure designed to "break the mind"......






And, much like word of the day (and WTF do they always say ...and much like God...argh!!), there is a similarity between this, and our own preparations for the day. Already, we are gathering items, making sure we have plenty of sleep now, getting fake tan, eyebrows done, outfits sorted...honestly, those boys have it easy....All they have to do is run around for 90 mins, where as we have to endure a 3 day event of drinking, laughing (must remember to do pelvic floor training...) and having fun. jeez.






So Warren, if you want any tips for match day preparation, come and see me....I am not at all underdone...x
