|Our second day in Utah brought almost six inches of snow! Brian and I are totally in love with skiing!!! So we borrowed some rock-skis and kicked around the local golf course for two hours! What a treat for October 4th!|
We have been in Park City for about 5 Days and today is our first day off! We put in a solid Volume Block of low intensity so we could adjust to the higher altitude (6,000 ft). Yesterday I had L-3 intervals in the morning and an 1.5 run in the evening. Between the two workouts I volunteered to be an ambassador for the Fast and Female Champ Camp held at the USST Center of Excellence. I had an absolute blast and enjoyed every minute of inspiring the next generation of female athletes! I was particularly proud of my 'Green Team" girls who all showed me their clap push-ups! Awesome :)
|The Green Team rotated from station to station learning about different elements of each sport. Here we learned about the importance of leg strength and quickness for Alpine Racing.|
|Hanging out with an Olympian :)|
|The most popular station was the trampoline and foam pit. The girls got to do a series of tricks and then finish with a move before landing in the soft foam pit! I was stoked about the cool socks everyone had!|
|Sophie showing how it's done! Toe touching while the other girls cheered her on!|
The one aspect of the afternoon that stuck out to me the most was how exhausted the other Ambassadors were after the 4 hour event. Most of the other Ambassadors had the day off from training too! I realized that ironically this was a typical day for Brian and I! We usually put in a big effort in the morning, spend the middle of the day through afternoon at run club and then train again in the later evening. Feeling like I could handle the load so well made me feel very good about the amount of energy and enthusiasm Brian and I put into everyday we work at the Boys and Girls Club and how that has become just another part of our lives! I had a blast meeting new kids and motivating them to be their best but I do miss our Run Club Crew quite a bit. Brian and I have already started planning for our next series of workouts and races for the kids when we get home!
