Titans center Brian Schwenke continues to give fans a look into training camp from a player’s perspective.
Entry #2 – Getting Acclimated to the Grind of Camp
There wasn’t anything exciting at the team hotel last night. We have bed checks at 11:00 p.m. but you’ll find that most guys are asleep by ten. The coaches have a key so they’ll just come in your room to make sure you’re there. Last night I was asleep long before the coaches came by so I slept through the check. I’m sure they came, I just wasn’t aware of it. I’m thankful they didn’t decide to mess with me.
The schedule is going to get difficult. Yesterday we had a morning practice and in the afternoon we had a walk through. Today we had an afternoon practice so we had a good gap of recovery time between practices. We ended around 11:00 a.m. yesterday and started at 3:00 p.m. today so that’s plenty of time to recover. Now tomorrow we practice at 9:00 a.m. and we just finished practice at 5:00 p.m. so we have a much smaller gap. We’re hitting it much quicker and we’re going to be in pads so you have to be smart and take care of your body in that small chunk of time.
With pads tomorrow, the intensity of practice is going to pick up. I’m not sure what Whiz has planned if we are doing any one-on-one drills o-line versus d-line. It’s definitely more intense with pads and it’s a part of getting in shape. To be able to go with that intensity for a whole practice is just another part of being ready for the season.
