It has been about 1month of training here in Subic Bay and 2weeks or so with the rest of the team here.
It is a great thing to have other strong athletes to train with, it really helps to push the threshold of the sessions up to where it needs to be. The first week I have to admit to joining in on some of the “organ” measuring competitions that a few of the sessions turned in to, maybe partly instigagted by myself:)
I remember arriving the first time to the squad 2 and a half years ago now. For me it was an incredibly exciting time, to walk on pool side with the likes of AJ, Tim Don, Liz Blatchford, and more and then getting to train along side them was both exciting and intimidating.
I guess I am now, somewhat, on the other side of that experience. Which is strange to think just less than 3 years on. I see all the new guys and girls and I will share with you, I am sizing them all up and have been impressed and worried by many of them. When I say worried, I mean(well in most cases) by their ability, be it in the pool, on the bike or on the run. There are some good girls and boys here giving it their all and I can all ready see will be pushing us all to be the best we can be to just be the best in the team:)
Better get back to resting:)
