As you can see, there is not a minute in the day that is not accounted for. The schedule may seem restricting or over the top to some, but it allows each member of the squad including medical and management to know what is going on and where to be at what time. From the team doctor perspective it allows us to see anyone that had any problems from colds to concussions. Dr Price and I am exhausted by bedtime as is therapy team. I am just thankful I'm getting more sleep than the managers. There is a great atmosphere in camp and everyone is focused on one aim. Bring on the Germans tomorrow!
