For the first time since the beginning of January, we were able to have a "normal" week of practices without having to prepare for a mid-week match. After playing 10 matches in 27 days, we were able to get some much needed rest at the beginning of the week to let our bodies recover from a difficult month. Playing so many matches in such a short period of time has been good practice for when playoffs begin. We know what it will be like to play every 2 or 3 days and know what we need to do to try and recover quickly before the next match.
After our rest, we had some very good quality practices this week in preparation for Kuortane. We know that they have been surprising some teams and we have to make sure we are mentally and physically prepared for the match Saturday. I think we have done a great job preparing and we are ready for the match!
After Kuortane we have our big matchup against the Italian Casalmaggiore team in CEV cup on Wednesday. So we will try and use our match against Kuortane as a good practice for Casalmaggiore. It should be a great atmosphere as we are hosting one of the best teams in Europe and we are excited to see how loud and crowded Elenia will be on Wednesday!
