Can training affect eye pressure?

RUNNING/VIGOROUS EXERCISE EFFECT ON EYE PRESSURE

This may be a bizarre question, but can training affect the pressure of my eyes? My grandmother has glaucoma, and my eye pressure readings are on the high side. I am a 33-year-old female, 5 feet tall, 110 lbs. I run 30 miles a week, and I'm also a triathlete. I have an eye appointment scheduled, but I thought I'd ask anyway.
