Training Thursday, 2/28/08

Tonight was a late volleyball game (scheduled to start at 10:30 p.m.), so I decided to lay off the bike, weights, elliptical, etc. I don't even want to be awake at 10:30, let alone consider starting a volleyball match (and that's if everything is on time -- which it wasn't). Our match started a little rough -- I think I've got a slightly strained muscle in my upper abs, which was gettin' cranky as we started. Was a 5 vs. 5 match, which led for quite a bit of running (our setter probably ran a mini-marathon chasing down all our bad passes), but we ended up pulling out all three games, getting ourselves back in the upper end of the standings. Match didn't finish until midnight, so I'll be dragging a bit on Friday.

With February coming to a close, though, we're still doing well on our fundraising efforts for the American Diabetes Association. To date, we've raised $820 with seven cyclists on the Beats Running team, tremendous considering how early it is, and two of our cyclists haven't even started their fundraising efforts yet! Bodes well for a very successful charity effort. Allow me to once again thank you all for your contributions to this worthy cause, and for those of you who are able and willing to support us, we certainly appreciate it -- we're in need of sponsorships as well as more riders!

  • Breakfast -- large decaf coffee and a Fiber One chocolate/oats bar
  • Lunch -- bowl of pasta/pizza soup (pasta, sausage, and some veggies in a red broth)
  • Dinner -- shrimp scampi over fettucini (tasty little shrimps), tossed salad with Italian dressing
  • Beveri -- a brewed adult libation
