Today is our last day of training in Canada! Tomorrow we will do a time trial to see where we are, then pack up, head home for two days and then fly to Europe.
We will be training in Portugal for 10 days before going into the village. Yes, the excitement is building!!
Today is also the last day of our weight training program; the next few weeks we will start to taper our workouts so that we are ready to race.
While we are in Portugal the entire Irish Paralympic team will be there with us so we are looking forward to meeting them and training with them. Apparently there are about 100 athletes on the team, including their rowers. We are planning to do some sessions with them so we can have more competitive workouts.
It has been a roller coaster ride so far, but I feel like we are gaining speed and momentum and I can't wait to see what we are capable of when we are fully recovered!
I will have a lot more to write once we get into Portugal, so I will send another update next week.
