Summer Ultimate

I hold that summer ultimate is one of the hardest seasons.  Yeah, springtime is where it's at, competitively; but there's a whole team support system that helps maintain the intensity.  It's so east to feel a huge letdown going into the summer, to stop training and basically give up any standards one had about performance. And then there's you non-athlete friends who just want to smoke and drink every night.

Don't get me wrong, I love getting down and partying over the summer - I play frisbee.  But yo-yoing your body between pack fitness in the spring to complete cardiovascular destruction in the summer, only to restarting fall training is a recipe for disaster.

To play spring ultimate, you have to be physically strong.  To play summer ultimate, you have to be mentally strong.
