Granite Games Makes Throat Grainy
The Granite Games is a community Crossfit Event that is held every year and my gym was the host for the one in Memphis, TN this year. It was a long day for the voice and at the end of the day, my voice was even deeper and raspier than usual and I should have used it to my advantage and made some demo recordings, but after 7 hours of announcing and encouraging athletes over loud music, I decided to have some tea and just rest the vocal chords. The voice was still a little sore the next day but definitely feeling better after more tea to sooth the chords.
A good lesson to learn about how much your voice can handle and proper recovery to make sure you are not sidelined with a vocal injury.
