I'm Feeling Quite Stiff This Morning

... Because I played volleyball last night for the first time in eight or nine years. Get your mind out of the gutter. It was pretty good fun and our team, Purple Cobras, won. Only three of the regular team members were there, two new faces including myself, and one guy filling in. But we gelled ok and the other team weren't so good. Remembering everyone's name was a bit extra to concentrate on.

I've played some very competitive volleyball in my time. Being a high jumper the spike was a very good shot for me. Was a good shot. Last night I found quite a bit of difficulty in getting off the ground sufficiently to hit a good spike. We won the first two sets fairly easily and mucked around too much in the third set and lost concentration, must have been down about 15-2 before waking up, but lost the third. We were leading in the fourth before time ran out.

Very enjoyable to get back into it. Although my back is not exactly enjoying this morning. Must have moved some muscles in a manner that hadn't been done for some time. Nothing serious though.

P.S. When I got home I pretended to be injured again. Limped into the living room and Miky started going off at me about damaging myself once more. Before she really got stuck in I quit the gag. Just the reaction I was looking for.

Is this a long term fitness gig, or were you just filling in? Have fun.

For fun, fitness and frivolity.
