Day 12: Volleyball

Day18_BlockSaturday I played Queen of the Court in an indoor beach volleyball tournament. I finished somewhere in the top half which is not bad after not playing in awhile. My next goal is to finish in the top 8. That might take awhile. Sunday I played women’s doubles followed by coed. That’s 8 hours of volleyball in 2 days. I am wiped out but I have to get a run in today before I let my race goal get too far away from me. I am probably still around 9 minute miles. My hip and knee started feeling better right when we got our new bed so I am hoping I am okay to run now. We’ll see.

    I wondered if you still played vball. That is how I met my husband 10 years ago. We still play on sixes and fours leagues as well as drop-in on Friday nights. I don’t think I will ever be able to give it up!

    Hi Rachel! I stopped for a long time after college but started playing in the sand awhile back. It was harder at first but so much easier on my knees and back. LOVE IT. Actually, that is where I met my husband too! 🙂

    So far I haven’t been enticed to play sand…we still play hardcourt. We do like to play outdoors though. When we bought our house about 6 1/2 years ago, we wanted to have a backyard big enough to play in, and that’s what we got! Maybe this summer we can arrange to get together and play some, that would be fun!
