As you might saw it on CBS, I'm going to try to qualify to the 2022 Olympics in Bejing.
I don't know if I'm going to be able to qualify to the next Olympics but is the journey, planning, the team effort, and PD treatment that could inspire others and most importantly generate awareness on the condition.
Challenging yes, but not impossible and the pain is worth it if meaningful to those around Parkinson's Disease.
I have to be super efficient in my training, treatment, diet, and life balance and take many things into account like PD, age, family, and of course, my full-time job.
I don't believe someone ever competed in the Olympics or even trying to qualify with Parkinson's Disease.
The decision was made. Kate, Frankie, Sunny and my doctor approved this challenge. Now, it is time to build a team, train, race and start fundraising to support The Roberto Carcelen Foundation efforts on Parkinson's Disease.
Regarding training, I used to train about 21 hours/week now, I can put solid 6 hours/week. This 6 hours are aimed to build endurance base and technique that I lost to time and Parkinson's Disease.
The intensity of the workout for now it will be easy "long" sessions, nothing too hard. I also need to monitor closely on how training with PD will affect me positive or negative.
