Midway through the second day of the comp, and we’re all learning lessons. Like how to make instant oatmeal with only the in-room coffee maker… In a classic ‘don’t try this at (my) home’ moment, I will let you use your imagination. If you do decide to replicate this in someone’s home, here’s some beta: try having a spoon on hand, as the coffee stir sticks do have some limits; and, it is best to put the oatmeal in the disposable coffee cups, and NOT the carafe.
But oatmeal is yummy before heading into the cold morning at 6:30 am.
We all went to the gym for the 7am iso start, to support Natasha and Ashleigh.
They both climbed well, even though the routes increased quite a lot in difficulty. Ashleigh moves on to the finals tomorrow.
Next up is our afternoon prep for the speed qualifiers. It involves picking up our team photo at a local mall (starring a rather portly figure in a red suit with a white beard), and then visiting a local accessories store as part of the prep for the speed comp. Sure, the Russian Speed Dance helps, but we all know that it is all about the accessories.
