Today (Sunday, 4 April 2010) I am going to fly to Mallorca to join the ChamCamp 2010. I’ll join this beachvolleyball training camp the third time after 2008 and 2009. This spring training camp is the start of the out-door season and the first tournaments will start in month.
1. Day (Sunday, 4 Apr 2010):
Early wake-up in Munich.
Heading to the airport to catch the flight to Mallorca.
Sunny day at the beach with some easy matches.
The hotel is a -1 star hotel fully loaded with sport men (mainly bikers and beachvollyball players).
2. Day (Monday, 5 Apr 2010):
Just a perfect day at the beach.
We’ve played several matches and enjoyed the sun.
The first training session will start tomorrow.
We had a typical spanish dinner in a tapa bar at night with much garlic and wine .
3. Day (Tuesday, 6 Apr 2010):
70 players game together and participated in a casting to define the training groups (sorted by levels).
The afternoon training session had very bad conditions because of the strong wind.
Well, some work needed to be done too. Slow internet connection in the hotel lobby.
4. Day (Wednesday, 7 Apr 2010):
A cold but dry training day at the beach.
The training was well organized and the training showed us our weaknesses and how to improve our technique.
He gave feedback after every single ball – just perfect.
5. Day (Thursday, 8 Apr 2010):
Today is not training to recover from the first two days.
We are going to play some matched but the weather is just bad. It’s raining and it’s cold. The forecast shows an improvement for this afternoon.
We used the rainy first half of the day and drove to Palma de Mallorca. Window shopping!
Well, the weather forecast was right and we had a nice afternoon at the beach.
6. Day (Friday, 9 Apr 2010):
Another cold but dry day at the beach. The heavy wind was more than complicated to handle.
7. Day (Saturday, 10 Apr 2010):
Sunny and warm last day of training.
8. Day (Sunday, 11 Apr 2010):
Another sunny day.
No training – we’ve played a tournament today.
I left the beach at 5 pm. Transfer to the airport at 5:30 pm. Arrived in Munich at 10:30 pm.
