I peeled myself out of bed, hopped on the trainer for 30 minutes, took a shower, ate breakfast, and then finished packing my bags for our long road trip to training camp today. Boots, the cat, has gotten quite fat since I have been feeding her. I figure she will have to go for over 2 weeks without being fed, so I’ve been giving her lots of food. I even gave her some of the fish I made last night. This morning, I left lots of food all around the backyard for her to snack on as the days go on, that is if the other strays don’t steal the food.
Today we are off for our drive down to Calpe, Spain. It will be about a 5 hour drive so I will bring plenty of movies to watch in the car on my notebook. I’ve never watched a movie in a car. I get car sick, so it will be interesting to see what happens to me, haha.
It has been a great past 3 months leading up to this camp and the start of the season. I am really excited to see all my hard work pay off. It’s been one of the most challenging winters ever for me, mostly because of my dietary changes to help with my Irritable Bowel Syndrome Disorder. I’ve had to limit as much sugar as possible and cut gluten completely out of my diet along with dairy. This has helped me and I am just so glad to have my IBS-D under control for the most part.
I will try and report back throughout the camp on how everything is going. We have quite a few new members on the squad this year so it will be great to get to know all of them.
Off on a road trip,
