Yesterday I hopped onto a plane and flew to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada to meet up with my teammates and coaches for an offical US ski team training camp. We loaded up the van and made the drive up to Whister (the home of the 2010 Olympics, which is just a few short months away!) When we arrived we unloaded the van, changed into running clothes and went for a run that ended at a lake. After we all jumpped in and swam around for a while we were told to ’shower right away and scrub really well, because that lake gives people swimmers itch’. (So far, so good… I made it through the night and I am still itch free!!!)
This morning we had a nice distance rollerski and this afternoon we will be lifting some heavy weights in the gym. We will be training our butts off the next several days, and I’m looking forward to some great workouts!
