The advantage of a delayed write up is that my memory gets fuzzy and leaves out much of the mundane details I otherwise would include. Ha! What a sorry excuse.
My team, Asphalt Beach, had our first team training camp in Tampa after the Squiggy racing weekend. By all accounts, it was a huge success. It kicked off my outdoor season with some much needed mileage. I verified my current fitness after a winter of tough training. I learned to skate with my teammates, finding out each other's skating style. Plus what could be better to build commeraderie than to "suffer" together for a few days?
LW put together our program with a mix of off-skates, plyos, rolling drills, paceline work, strategic exercises, intervals, and hill training thrown in for good measure. These are all various drills I do on regular basis between my own training and TISC practices. It was a good refresher for sure. What interested me was that I got to see myself doing those drills from plenty of photos and videos taken during the training camp. Shall we begin?

Plenty more photos and video after the jump.
