A week off to rest
August 9, 2011
This entry is the fourth in a series this summer highlighting the off-season activities of athletes as they prepare for the 2011 season and beyond. This week's installment comes from Springdale Har-Ber wide receiver Michael Fine.
Following last weeks early morning practices, its been a nice week of rest and relaxation.
With the weather being above a hundred every day I have to make sure I have plenty of fluids in me to prevent dehydration during the next week of practice. Although we had the week off, I spent a lot of time in the gym trying to gain back a few pounds I lost due to heat and 7-on-7.
Now it’s time to get back into football mode with practices every day this week. Earlier in the week we are focusing on maxes and later in the week we are strapping on the pads and preparing for the season to come and our first game in Razorback Stadium on September 1st. I’m excited to be back on the field with my teammates and coaches.
