Chris and I arrived in Cali on Tuesday afternoon. The next day we went for a nice easy run in the morning, it felt great to get all the airplane stiffness out of my legs. It is super important for athletes to keep moving and keep doing exercises the days leading up to a competition. You have to keep a good balance between relaxing and light exercising. Your muscles get used to increase blood flow due to training and you don’t want to decrease it to much the week of a competition. A little light training goes a long way.
We are 16 girls in my division, 7 minute matches, Friday, 9 am pacific time. All these girls are champions. I will treat my first match like it is the final match, it is the only way to make it to GOLD!!
