Well, we lost a day traveling here from Poland, rather it was a really long travel day - almost 30 hours with all of the delays. Jenny just had us stretch rather than start with a double-day of practice on Tuesday. Our bodies were grateful for the rest.

Instead of changing into a robe for the massage they gave us this half top which opened in the back like a hospital gown and pants. The pants were so funny because of the length. We are sure they would have been full length on a native, but on us it was like our half pants reaching just below the knees. They used hot towels to prepare the body for massage. My massage pressure was great. I left there feeling ready for our early morning practice.

I decided at hit my trainer Emery for my legs after the morning practice yesterday. He usually takes care of all the massages and treatments for the team. I think he was feeling cheated on with a lot of us going out to get paid massages. I even went for a foot massage. It wasn’t the best that I have had but who am I to complain, it was an hour of having someone massage my feet.

And now GAME DAY yeah! Down with Poland National Volleyball team.
