We also finished our volleyball season by winning the City league and Tournament. My Coach will be glad that the season is over since my knees tend to take a beating hampering my running. Not to mention the extra calories I eat after the games.
But like I said - the training has now begun in earnest. The goal for December is to do as many of my workouts as possible. The Coach is still keeping the workouts at manageable levels so that I don't run into anymore sciatica issues. I am training six days a week with a long run of 40 minutes and two shorter runs. The bikes top out at an hour and thirty for a long ride. I am not looking forward to the cold weather and the trainer. I hate the trainer..it is boring and worse yet causes my boys an enormous amount of grief. I recently changed the seat and it helped a little. I am going to have to keep playing around with the angle of the seat until it is bearable. I did win one small victory - my wife has allowed me to use the trainer and treadmill in the bedroom..it is much more comfortable then where I had it and the T.V. is easier to see. If you are bored out of your mind you can see my workouts here training log The link is also on the side of the blog.
