It’s Day Four in La Manga, Spain. It’s Sunday and the coaching staff decided on a morning fitness session in the pool. It was a change of pace after two days of on the field double sessions, but it was far from an easy morning swim. And, with the rest of the day off, some of the guys are planning where they will go to watch the Jets game (tonight at 9 pm local time).

“It was actually hard session as we had to swim laps,” said Red Bulls goalkeeper Bouna Coundoul. . “We had to do relay races and each leg was 50 meters. It was a hard session but it reduced some of the impact that our bodies would take in a normal training session.  It was a change that also relaxed our minds. I now have a lot more respect for swimmers. How do they go so fast in the Olympics?”

After the session, the team had lunch and the rest of the day to themselves. Some guys slept or checked email or watched some of the soccer matches that were on the television. We’re in Spain, so there is a lot of soccer on the television (in English and Spanish).

A number of guys are set to go watch the game at a restaurant on the La Manga grounds. Die-hard Jets fan John Wolyniec is taking the lead. (We’ll have a report later tonight).

Tomorrow, training camp gets more serious with the first match that is scheduled for 5 pm local (11 am ET) against CSKA Moscow. RBR will be in attendance at the match and provide a post game report.

    […] was a major part of their system. Backe has already been emphasizing these aspects of the game, as evidenced by the last few reports out of La Manga from RBR. This was a major, cataclysmic flaw to the Bulls 2009 system. Though only a friendly, a 1-1 draw in […]
