Training, Traveling, and Cricket

After overcoming a bit of a cold this past week from my high altitude racing at the Grand Canyon, I had a good weekend of training with speed work at the track yesterday and a long 8 mile recovery run on the beach today. We are planning a 1/2 mile time trial on a nearby road this Saturday the 18th, then we board a plane to Atlanta for a few days of training before the rest of our traveling team arrives on Tuesday. Travel to London on Wednesday night arriving Thursday morning, then race on Saturday the 25th.

We had the pleasure to have Shiv Chanderpaul, one of the top batsmen in the world of cricket, training with me in Florida last week. Please check out the link to the story in; Guyana Times Sport about his work with me:

Directly following my race at The Grand Canyon, we boarded a plane to meet Shiv back in Sarasota. With my new training program, “Body Protection,” focusing on injury prevention while gaining the strength and power to excel at your sport, Shiv flew back to Guyana on Tuesday ready to resume his international play.

After our race at Stonehenge, we fly back to Atlanta for the Peachtree Road Race Expo held on July 2nd and 3rd. I am there on behalf of my compression sock sponsor, Sigvaris ( I look forward to meeting the participants of this very popular 10K road race at the Sigvaris booth.
