Reporting from Hartford!

08 Aug shonakamori 6 Comments »

Major apologies for the lack of updates!  Last week was possibly the busiest week yet.  I was busy getting ahead with my work and running errands to make sure that I was ready to go on my trip to Hartford for USA Championships.

The great thing was that training was light all of last week.  My hard cycle was done by that point so we basically focused on lower volume but higher qualities in each of the routines. This was all just part of the tapering process to get my body physically fresh and ready for the competition.  Now that the preparation’s done, it’s time to put on a show!

As for this weekend, I went to my old teammate’s wedding.  It was great seeing him so happy, not to mention that the wedding became a huge reunion for the Stanford Men’s Team!  All of my teammates are doing well in their own respective fields. They’re all out saving the world by working in the computer field, becoming doctors, lawyers, vets, etc.

Now, after a full day of traveling, I’m finally here in Hartford, Connecticut.  It was a long cross-country trip but I made it over without any delays!  I’ll be going to the arena tomorrow to get used to the equipment.  Tuesday will be the same, and then it will be game time on Wednesday.  Thanks again for all the support!  It’ll be fun to be back in the game again!
