I played netball last night (as I normally do) except this time I was sick and I did the unthinkable for any overweight unfit person - I played Centre! OK so it was only for 10 minutes, but that is huge for me.
The player who plays centre has to run the entire length of the court - up and back following the ball etc. That's 30.5 metres one way! I am very pleased with myself. I usually only play GS (shooter) or GK (defense) which is limited to 1/3 of the court. The best thing was how my team mates all supported and congratulated me afterwards! Most of them know I have been banded and they all know that I NEVER play Centre!! Well not now.... Now I know I can ..... but only if I NEED to ;)
