Spain Training Camp Day 1

Got into Spain yesterday and after a LONG travel day I think we're ready to train. I have to say that I'm already enjoying camp as the first thing I did when we arrived was to get a badly needed massage. Sitting on planes and traveling upwards of 13 hours, regardless of wearing compression tights, is going to take a toll on your legs. So, while everyone else headed out for an easy run, I headed to the massage table.

From what Ican gather of this place, it's basically an endurance athlete's paradise. Long dirt roads, mountainous terrain, and endless directions to go in. One word: Awesome!

The place/ranch/house/compound we're staying at is beyond ridiculous. There's a hottub, lap pool, kitchen, showers...generally anything you could possibly dream of as a triathlete. I'm really looking forward to getting things done around here!

Today is going to start with an easy 60 minute swim at the local aquatic center (it's still a bit cold for the outdoor pool), followed by an easy ride and an easy run. Just shaking off the travel a bit.

I'm going to post some pics and maybe some vids for today as well as detail some of my travel. Time to get to the pool!
