Development Camp Blog: Riley Barber Day 2

After practice yesterday, I had a pretty relaxing night. It really feels good to just be able to relax after a tiring day like we had yesterday. I watched Hot Tub Time Machine with my Miami teammate, Chris Joyaux, and [Caps prospect] Taylor Stefishen. We got some good laughs in there. After the movie, we had some salmon for dinner, which was really good. I got to bed around 11:30 p.m., I wanted it to be earlier, but I was able to get some good rest in for today.

This morning we got up around 7:15 a.m., took a shower, went to breakfast and then came to the rink for a stretch at 8:30 a.m. After that I got a good work out in and then came out on the ice for a good skate – getting ready for tomorrow’s game.

Practice was good, but we messed up a few of the drills. We weren’t that sharp today, but hopefully Team White can come out with a better effort tomorrow. All in all though, practice was good and we’re getting better and better each time we hit the ice.

This afternoon we have a session with the strength and conditioning coach, Mark Nemish, talking about eating healthy and stuff like that. That should be interesting and really informational. Besides that, we have the rest of the afternoon off.

Tonight I’m going to relax a bit, maybe go catch a movie. One of my Miami teammates, Jay Williams, lives around here, so I may give him a call and see what he’s up to and maybe he’ll come hang out at the hotel with us.
