Well, here it is officially 1 (one) week being in RIO and gearing up for the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games. Its been exciting along with the challenges of getting into a couple of routines. Things like; what athletes are on the compound and when are their practices? How many additional athletes & coaches show up each day and where do we start adding their post recovery treatments into the mix. there is also the occasional switch in training schedules and locations - are they coming to our location or staying at the village? So needless to say we are on the ever "flexible" end of things.. but perfectly fine by me. I know from experience it's only going to ramp up with more intensity within this last week leading up to official Opening Ceremonies on Friday August 5th!!
I am truly EXCITED!!
Other things we are figuring out is our daily exercise regiments - we need to stay sharp and be focused, the exercise part I think keeps us on target. I feel like my mental, physical & emotional parts are all synced up right now which is awesome. It's also nice to wake up and be in a peaceful place as well.
We ( the medical staff) had a day off on Saturday and headed up to Christ the Redeemer - ( not that I'm a super religious person) but was in awe and inspired by its majesty and the beautiful churches in the little town at the base of the mountain. What a Magical view from above. From where I could stand and see the Olympic Venues it looks pretty cool... we could even see some of the rowers on the water practicing... pretty cool!
So, Ive had a steady flow of athletes on my massage table- which is super motivating ( you gotta see this massage table) and the case load will continue to grow... I say "BRING IT" that's why I'm here.
I'm living the dream people - hard work, sacrifice and determination does pay off! Go Team USA!!
I'm out for now... picking up my clinic shift
Always & with the Glitter!
