It’s funny– I play ultimate more or less year-round (weather permitting), but only during the summer do I get the full-blown intense workout that makes me feel like I’m really in shape. And I can almost feel myself improving each month, until I hit some kind of peak physical state where I’m “in the zone”.

This week I reached that point.

I played four games (a fairly standard week) and just seemed to slide into the right places at the right times. I made defensive plays I normally miss by a step, I threw dead-on fifty-yard passes, I caught ankle-high swill at a full run. I was in the zone, and it was great.

Hopefully it will continue– at least until late fall, when the weather makes it hard to play several times a week, and I lapse back into my winter state of lethargy.
