Yes I know it's been forever since I've posted, sorry Joan ;) The past seven weeks I been getting in solid 100mile+ weeks and running kick ass workouts with my very fit training partners Rob Watson, Taylor Milne, among others.
Last Sunday I left for Flagstaff, Arizona for a four and half week training stint at 7000ft. The thin air was good to me last year so I'm back putting in the last bit of prep for Payton Jordon 10000m. I'm staying in a great big house with a bunch of other Canadian that include Grant Handrigan, Richard Mosley, John Corbit, Dylan Wykes, and Colin Fewer (L-R photo). The place has a pool & ping pong table, 'Golden Tee' arcade game, and multiple flat screens, enough to keep us well entertained when not running.
The above photo was taken by Dave (coach) of us in Buffalo Park doing a 1mile-2mile-1mi-2mi-1mi workout. You wouldn't know it from the picture that we were battling 50k+ winds, felt like we weren't getting anywhere at times. Despite the conditions everyone seemed pleased with their efforts, as was I only being a few seconds back of last years, less windy, splits.
