In preparation for the games I'm training about right around 6 days a week, 5 hours a day, and that's time spent on the track doing speed workouts,

endurance stuff, and then I spend 3 hours there and then 2 hours in the gym doing plyometrics, free weights, Olympic lifts and all that good stuff.

Mentally I just try to stay to myself. I need to zone out.

I just try to get in tune with what I'm about to do. Think about the technical aspects of things and just really lock out every possible distraction.

I try to keep my diet pretty balanced with the way I normally eat. For me it's just a high protein diet.

What I'm going to splurge on is Ben and Jerry's Oatmeal Cookie Chunk ice cream. I cannot wait.
