I survived my volleyball tournament…sort of thanks to my klutziness
The bruises and bleeding due to broken blood vessels have settled into my foot. I spent 6 1/2 hours on Saturday jumping up and down on this leg. I say it’s not that bad considering! My shin is still pretty swollen and I have pretty good pools of bruising on both sides of feet and on top of my foot just before my toes. I have affectionately named this my “zombie leg”!
My friends and I competed in the Sunflower State Games in the competitive volleyball bracket. (I made sure to check out with a doc and got the green light to play) We played three matches in pool play and taking 3rd out of four teams. Then we moved on to bracket play where we played one match, which we lost….badly.
Our team has a lot of knowledge and experience….just not a lot of endurance. Our average age was 31. Most of the teams we played had an average age of 19…and by 19 I mean they were ALL 19. Not to mention that we did not practice before hand and only four of us had played together before. We had some fun, probably too much at some times, and got a great workout.
I am beyond sore! Almost every major muscle group is sore including my legs, butt, back, core abs, and even shoulders. It seriously took me five minutes to lace up my sneakers to take a short run on Sunday to work out the kinks, lol.
Now to get back to knitting! I just wish I hadn’t smashed my right thumbnail on Saturday during the second game! It makes knitting a little hard when I don’t want to put pressure on that particular digit….
