Finally home! It was a great month in Clermont Florida, with the QT2 Age Group Camp going from Feb 6th – 9th and then the QT2 Pro camp going from Feb 15th – March 2nd. The age group camp was a great time with so many athletes, not only did we nail some serious bike volume we also had a lot of fun outside of the workouts hanging out, usually in one of the sets of Normatec’s that come to all of our age group camps.
There was a “dead” four days in between the two camps where Matt, Cait, Spinney and I did some training but nothing major in order to get ready for what was in store when Kropelnicki landed.
Summary of what we did for 17 days. In no particular order.
Tried to act like the woman’s sweatshirt on a few workouts. Especially – Swim band race swim starts. (This video is obviously not with bands)
Spent a lot of running miles with the ladies. (Kendra’s Pictures)
Camp was once again a great time. I found some fitness and it was good for me mentally to be with the group training after everything that’s gone on the past 3 months. But most importantly – it gave me that extra little bit I’ll need for race day. I spent 4 weeks away from my family. You don’t give up on race day when it gets hard when you spend time away from your family. You dig a little deeper to show them that it was worth it. I can deal with giving up on myself. But not giving up on my family.
