So…in the space of four days, I left camp in Sun Valley, flew home to good ‘ol Minnesota, spent two and a half days with my family and then left for the Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid. And it was super good to be home, even if it was only for a short time. I missed my family!
I’m going to be here in Placid for about a month – first with the CXC crew, then with the NEG. Good thing the center is so nice! I really like the recovery center and the ability to take an ice bath after a workout. But let’s not confuse “ice bath” with “nice bath”. I can’t say I’m the biggest fan of cold water, although it helps me recover so it’s worth it!
However, I’m sad to say that I’m starting to see a gruesome trend…this is the second camp in a row in which I’ve hit the deck the first day. Dang.

Hopefully I’ll have more pictures later on (and ones without blood in them)
