After a long rest

Budapest week 9-10 - Altitude training

Rate this Entry
I traveled to Grand Junction with our senior group. Colorado Mesa was just awesome. Our accommodation, pool, and dinning were within a 1min walk from one another. The kids swam at 8am so I swam every morning at 5:30 and was averaging about 90 mins. I swam ok but really did not ever feel like adjusted to the altitude.

All workouts were LCM unless stated

I would highly recommend the University of Colorado Mesa both for camp and as a great Division 2 school. I had a great opportunity to spend time talking with the aquatic director and a number of the life guards who swam on the team. All very impressive people.
