As only the British weather forecasters could say, It will be a Damp and Dull in Guildford today. While the weather was a bit gloomy, the day was anything but dull.
Thanks to great facility at the Surrey Sports Park, Hunter headed to the pool for an early morning swim.
While local master’s swimmers have the left 4 lanes, we have right half of the pool. This morning it was all for Hunter.
After his swim and a good breakfast, Hunter settled in to watch the swim heats live from the Olympic Aquatic Center. While he was watching, he thought he might as well put in a couple of hours on the CompuTrainer.
When Hunter finished his spin, the CompuTrainer moved to Gwen’s room. Under the watchful eye of Gwen’s Coach Cindi Bannink, they are both watching the rowing heats!
Just an easy ride, with a few pick ups. What is that cadence?
Right from her bike Gwen and Cindi headed out to the Rugby fields for a few long laps. Cindi was kind enough to give me a few minutes warning as to when they were wrapping up, so I can get a head start getting to the field.
The Surrey Sports Park is the home of the Pro Rugby Team, the Harlequins. Gwen and Cindi caught their attention on the run.
As always, Gwen displayed her excellent form.
Manny Huerta and training partner, Leonardo Chacon, Costa Rican Olympian were wrapping up their ride.
After lunch and a siesta Manny did a light run for a NBC / Telemundo Interview.
Here their cameraman left his HD camera and used his skateboard and GoPro for some actions shots.
Manny took a few minutes to check email before his interview.
Finally an in depth interview (in Spanish of course) with Francisco Cuevas from NBC / Telemundo.
Post interview, I headed back to London with John Martin.
Today, I am heading back to Olympic Park and Central London.
