Last night the weather was PERFECT! It was in the 60's, sunny with a slight breeze and we were ready to play.
I play double's at 5pm with my good friend Chris. We have been friends since middle school and have played volleyball together off and on for about 17 years (wow that sounds insane and not even possible to be true), we have been doubles partners for 4 years. We have a four's team that plays at 6pm, we've got one of my little sisters and her husband's cousin who play with us.
We were just all so excited for the awesome weather yesterday, last year it was in the upper 30's with sleet/rain, awful.
It was a bit rough starting off, the transition from indoor to outdoor takes just a little bit. It is so much easier to get some height off of a gym floor versus the sand. Chris was jumping a bit too early but still getting his hits. It took me a few times to feel comfortable jumping and hitting but I go there.
We won all of our games, it feels good to start off the season 6-0! Hopefully we keep it up and continue to improve.
My running has been minimal, I've been having a lot of abdominal issues and I will be seeing my doctor tomorrow. I feel like I've strained my abs, after a run they are extremely sore (actually they are constantly sore) and very swollen. My half marathon is in a month so I am very anxious to figure out what is going on and hoping we can come up with something so I can continue to run and still run the half marathon!
