I'm sitting in my sunny bedroom sipping coffee
There's a lovely breeze blowing through my window
It's only 54 degrees, compared with yesterday's high of 102
I do not have any training sessions until 3pm!
Tapering (scaling back on training during the week before a competition) feels wonderful. With each passing day, I feel more rested, more explosive in the water, and more excited to compete. I wish I could feel like this all the time, but it's only the hundreds of hours we've put in this far that allow us to feel so fine-tuned when we are resting up for a big competition.
Our World Cup Team Trials start on Friday here in Chula Vista. There are 12 women and 12 men entered in the trials; the fastest few will be on a plane for Europe in 10 days!
I appreciate your continued support through emails, phone calls, and visiting my website!
