Happy fathers day!

What a wet June!
Fortunately, ran held off during this morning's game.
So, all in all, not a bad father's day.

On a unrelated note, 6 votes for best kit in the sun poll! Looks like my 2 readers each voted 3 times!
Need to think of a new poll.
And back to the blog...

Game Summary
First game of this level I've tracked. And I remembered to wear the tracker for both halves.
Typical game for this level.
Thanks to El Diablo for excellent feedback!

Stat Line:
half / km / avg speed / top speed
1st / 1.69 / 2.4 / 18.8
2nd / 2.30 / 3.4 / 19.8
*40 min half

Total distance extrapolated thru 90 min: 4.49 km

2nd half I actually traveled a fair distance. In the 2nd I practiced sprints to goal kick restarts, so that inflated the avg speed and top speed.

"Stay out of centre circle" worked pretty well at this level. Able to anticipate play well enough and for one or two times I needed switch halves, I could sling shot around the circle.
LOL, I actually said "sling shot engaged" during one run.
Looks like the field markings in the photo are off compared to actual.


Morgan and Stephanie. Well done all around!



  1. What do you have that does the tracking? That is TOO cool!!

  2. Nice, a new reader!
    Welcome to the party that is the Reckless Tackle.

    For the tracker, I use a free app from
    Sign up here:

    Free download for iPhone or other smartphone.

    Grab an old sock, cut out the end and voila, simple arm band holder. (or purchase a sport arm band)

    Prior to kick off I start the app (making sure to turn off the phone ringer), then after it uploads to the site. On the site you can see the visuals, etc.

    Try it, it's super fun.
