Go Figure

Well, you wouldn't think that playing volleyball for 3 hours would have any effect on your muscles...but alas that would be wrong thinking.

Dammit.

Too much crouching on the court = sore butt.
Too much setting = sore hands.
Too much spiking (and yes I can "spike" but we will totally pull out the air quotes) = sore upper body everywhere.

Even with all these sore muscles I was able to get 4 miles in yesterday with no problems...which you know is nice considering the upcoming race. Tonight we have a 30 minute tempo run, and then just 2 miles tomorrow.

Due to our fucked up schedule we have been getting runs in when we can and have gone away from running in the earlier mornings. I hope this doesn't have a a huge effect on my racing ability on Saturday morning. We will try and give ourselves plenty of down time before the race by trying to get our 2 miles in early tomorrow morning. We should also then be able to see if our legs even like to move in the morning :-)

I like to liberally use the word spiking :-)

Sore butt from too much crouching? I didn't realize that was possible, then again, I've never played three straight hours of volleyball. I'm sure the change in schedule will be just fine. No problems whatsoever.
