All the year spoke in front of the people.
Thanked to Ms. Endo and other two coaches who were attending the gathering as graduates.
Back in 80's, we couldn't drink water during the training. It was prohibited.
They didn't know it was no good scientifically. Therefore, especially during Summer Training, which lasted for 3 hours in the morning, no water, no sports drink.
After the training, it was easy to finish drinking over 1 litter water.
I remember my mother used to ask me " what are you doing everyday for basketball? this T-shirt, I can squeeze...." that was my sweat ! clammy !
Also, I remember I was told by a coach that we shouldn't swim... since the muscle used for swimming is different from basketball. Really ? I loved swimming, but followed her words.
Also, I used to take piano lessons. I often sprained my fingers from basketball.
My piano instructor told me that I should choose either piano or basketball.
I chose basketball. I knew I could play piano later when I got older, but that was the only time I could play basketball with team mates. I could have played basketball after high school ... still the best performance would be probably only during high school.
I still have no regrets for my decision. I learned a lot there. I started playing piano again when I got much older. I can't play basketball now because of bad knees, but I sometimes play piano. I feel I was right.
