This weekend I am swimming at a local swim meet called Cap City In Cary at the Triangle Aquatic’s center. I am super tired and broken down from swimming and lifting so much the past couple of weeks. I ordered my plane ticket for the Jimi Flowers Classic this past week as well. It will be at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.
After the Netherlands, I will be moving to Colorado Springs to train at the Olympic Training Center as part of the Paralympic residential team to train until 2012. The Training Center is a great place to train and know that this will take me to the next level of swimming. There is a lot of great opportunity’s there for me to take advantage of: the altitude, coaching staff, training facility, nutritionist, weightlifting coach will all be working together to help prepare me for the 2012 Paralympics in London, not to mention the great views of the mountains. I have to be there for the first day of practice, which begins on the 1st of September, so I will depart NC shorly after I return from the Netherlands on the 23rd.
Wish me luck this weekend.
