Training going well

The lecture on Saturday went well. It is always easy to talk about the theories behind your training and what you have done etc.etc. But the real challenge is to apply this to the audience. Too many times, young athletes try to copy what the elite…

ones are doing and the results are very rarely good…..short-term and long-term. So you have to be careful. I try to give some examples, but to focus mostly on ideas and principles. These are much easier for the young ones to follow.

Training is going like planned. Lots of long hard sessions combined with high intensity work. I am gradually getting in better shape, but felt already from my Bolivia trip that I was in good shape. The next step up the latter will come in Kenya in the beginning of January. We leave around the 9th and stay there for 3 weeks at least.
