It is just too cool to be back in Boulder; fantastic town, super training facilities, beautiful landscape, weather marvelous; 35 in the daytime and a dry heat, 15 in the night time, so no problems to sleep. Our flight arrived to Denver on thursday evening and friday morning we started the day with a swim. But was not just any swim, as the coach was Jane Scott, Dave Scott’s sister, and in the pool there was also Craig Alexander, Chrissie Wellington and Julie Dibens… just to name some It is just cool to “train together” with the best ones in the world.(even i had to jump 2 lanes down, because i am not a fish like them).
So why is that good ? Because they are stars ? no…because they just put the training, and they really work out. They are concentrated, and
really do all they can. They just have a good work-etics, and that I like, it makes me work the same direction. Inspiration I think is the word.
Boulder is quite a big city, having about 100 000 inhabitants. The town is up in 1650 meters above the sea level, so the altitude takes some of the training efforts here in the beginning. They say it takes about a week to get well acclimatized with the altitude. The other point that takes some efforts is the dry heat. Throat and the eyes are having the biggest problems, but at the same time, it is just so nice to have clear skye with sun and lots of heat Just to remember to drink lots of water, and use high sunscreen and enjoy!
I try to be active with my blogs and at least with some photo shoots, as the photographer is around as well
