Recovery Day

Today was a recovery day for the U.S. WNT. No training on the field, no soccer balls, just a trip to a very nice local gym for some light running on treadmills, some time on the stationary bike, perhaps a few minutes on the elliptical machines and some core work. It was a much needed low-key training after playing three matches in six days, the last of which qualified the USA for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. After the gym workout, a few players showed why the just might be the GOAT at el boxeo (Ok, so none of our players are going to challenge Laila Ali, but they did show some decent pugilistic skills). See the video below to glimpse Heather "The Irish Annihilator" O'Reilly and a few other purveyors of the sweet science.

I guess it was Hope.
She is just great. I know, the whole WNT is great of course, but if anyone could hit the speedbag like that, it is Hope..
