First off, I apologize for the lack of pictures. This website is not a team player when it comes to uploading pictures, so I have created a Flickr account for your viewing pleasure.
Now for the fun stuff!!!
We started out with a short warm-up ride that was pretty nice. You have no idea how great it feels to be able to walk outside in the sunshine and ride all morning. I put on entirely too much clothing for the ride, which means I overheated for the first portion.
After the warmup, we did a short Time Trial to break in to groups. I was not happy with my performance and it will probably set me back in a weaker group. This was my biggest fear about camp and I hope it works out in the end.
An hour in to the ride and I was ready to go for the rest of the day. I was making long, hard pulls in the group up really steep climbs. If I can warm up properly, I think tomorrow will be nice.
After that, I went with the Triathletes to the pool and swam 2500 yards, which felt amazing. I attended a lecture on training with power and then worked on bike handling drills. There has been zero breaktime today (with the exception of this) and I am loving it.
Tomorrow we are going to climb Mt. Figueroa. This thing will be a beast and will account for several hours of my day.
Anyways, it is dinner time and I am staaaarrrrvvvvviiiinnnnngggggg.
