This first week of college has been easy thus far. I know that will change once we get into classes a little more. Today was a day to catch up on my sleep. I slept until about Noon. Then, I went with Jamie Braun and Nicole Hardin to Wal-Mart for one thing, which turn into a lot more than that. When we finished shopping we went to Nicole's apartment. After putting everything away, we decided to catch up on some homework and reading for our classes. At about 7 p.m. we were bored and decided to go get some shots in. Well, that never happened because we couldn't get into the gym. We went back to the apartment and ordered a pizza. At about 10 p.m. we decided to call it a night because we had an early day ahead of us.

WOW! 5:45 a.m. workouts. After conditioning, we headed to the weight room. There we worked on building our upper body. The weights seemed a little heavier than I remembered in the summer workouts. At about 7:30 we were finished in the weight room. Some of us had to go directly to class, but luckily for me my class started at 9 a.m. That left me with a half hour nap. Why did I do that? Getting out of bed was so hard but I got out just in time to make it to my class fifteen minutes early. After all of my classes, I went to Kimberly Roberson's apartment. We sat and waited until about 5:30 so we could go to Training Tables. This was my first day at training tables, and I enjoyed it. I went to study hall from 7-9. Now, I am going to go to my dorm and sleep, since I have another 5:45 a.m. workout tomorrow!
I can't wait to see all of the success the team will have this year.
