BEIJING UPDATE

I'm sorry I haven't had a chance to update my blog recently because I've been doing a lot of running around. I finally have a moment now so let me fill you in.

I had a couple days of long jump workouts that went very well and it seems that what I thought I had corrected in my technique is actually the case and I'm really pleased with how that has gone. Couple that with some massages and ice baths and I'm doing what I need to do to be ready come August 19th.

I have found some time to get out of the village a little bit. I went downtown to the shops with some of my teammmates. Here we are in this huge candy store enjoying some gummy worms, lol.



I also went to the swimming cube a couple nights ago to watch a couple of the Bahamian swimmers swim in their heats. One guy PRed so you really can't ask for much more than that. I also got to see Michael Phelps swim in the 100m fly event. He definitely is very impressive. He's got to be tired. I think he's swam a total of about 15 plus races by now!!



The other day it POURED rain again and a lot of us were caught in the dining hall and so the very helpful volunteers in there quickly made some makeshift raincoats for everyone - out of garbage bags. The dining hall seats around 5000 people so you can imagine what it looks like in there on any given day with that many people roaming around. It can get pretty hectic.



I'm supposed to be training today but unfortunately I've come down with some sort of virus. I'm not having the best of luck in regards to the timing of certain things but I just have to make the best of this opportunity and hope that in the next couple of days, I will be back to full speed. Speaking of speed, tonight is the blue ribbon event of the Olympic Games -the men's 100m final!!! Nuff said!! Get your popcorn ready!!

This virus is attacking everybody. Guess that just goes to show that the supposedly Chinese food we eat over here isn't the real thing.

I pray that the virus does not affect your performance. Here's to healing and winning!
