Burst of Energy

Today was my first day back in class after spring break. On days I'm in class I pretty much work out all day. I love it. Today was amazing. I was full of energy and had good workouts in all classes. We started volleyball today in my basketball/volleyball class. While I am a basketball fanatic, I was glad to start volleyball and have a change of pace in things. My arms are definitely not used to volleyball anymore. It's been YEARS since I've played. So tonight, my arms are bruised and red from it. It's a blast though. Even yoga went well, and I'm not much of a yoga fan.

Anyway, when I got home I still had tons of energy. I went for a walk and then remembered I had some yard work to do, so I did that as well. When I finally sat down for the evening my body was saying "Woman, chill out and STOP!" LOL. I could probably go to bed right now, but it's a good kind of tired. I love this feeling.

The bad part of all of this is that I didn't get any writing done like I was hoping. I could try to after this blog, but I highly doubt I'll write anything worth keeping. I still have a ton of ideas that I am tossing back and forth in my brain. Maybe eventually I'll get it organized enough and use those spurts of energy for my writing.... it's just hard to pass up a chance to go outside when the weather has been so great. We look like a bunch of moles peeking out of our holes with the sunshine. After the winter we've had, bring on as much sunlight as possible!!

Volleyball + Me = Dangerous

It's so much fun though when you get to slam a ball over the net ... so long as you don't have a friend you like on the other side of the net. I've always enjoyed playing that game, as long as they don't ask me to embarrass myself by serving the ball.

I played volleyball a little bit in high school, but I was more of a basketball/runner. I did cross country more than volleyball in that season to get in shape for basketball. Volleyball just wasn't enough movement or activity for me. But I am enjoying it right now in class, it's a great change of pace.
