The team returned from our first track camp of 2011 last night. Four days and seven track sessions proved to be an ass kicking for all of us. That's how you know it was a good camp! As it was the first full-on camp of the year, we spent some time getting reacquainted with the track before hitting the training hard. The reacquaintance period consisted of the five minutes before the warm up, then we got right down to it. It was great being on the track again with teammates. Training with teammates encouraging each other and suffering along side you makes the sessions easier, and more enjoyable.
In addition to returning home feeling like I got beat up in a fight, I brought back a cough that sounds somewhat like the croup. The cure? Robitussin. Chris Rock says that Robitussin is the cure for everything. Well, I can't say I'm a fan of the 'tussin, but it does seem to work.
A bit of recovery is on tap for this week, then back to the track for camp #2 next week!
