I'm in Iten from one week, organizing the camp for Qatar athletes, Kenyan and Ugandian. The situation here is OK, weather is good, and the group is growing with the most part of the athletes coming from January. I have a lot of young runners that want to join the group, that really is not a group, but many groups.
For example, this morning we went for a session of mixed fartlek of 6/5/4/3/2/1 minute with 1 min recovery, repeated twice, with the group of Stephen Cherono (Shaheen), with his brother Abraham that wants to move to 10000m leaving steeple (now is very strong), with new guys like Daniel Kemboi and Kipsemboi Katui, with Mbarak Shami former Richard Yatich, with Qatari Sultan Zaman (8th in short cross 2004) and Khamis Saifeldin (finalist in Athens in steeple). Training strats at 5:50, yesterday it rained and many roads are full of water.
In the afternoon I went in Kamariny stadium for a session of technique and exercises with James Kwalia and his group (Nicholas Kemboi is at home for holidays).
From January, all the Ugandian team arrives : Boniface Kiprop, Wilson Busienei, Martin Toroitich, Malinga, Dorcus Inzikuru and other.
So, when there is some new info, I can give you it. With Shaheen, for erxample, I'm trying to use two sessions very close during the morning (6 o'clock and 10 o'clock), resting in the afternoon. This is an attempt to use SPECIAL BLOCKS also daily, with two workouts with short recovery, followed by a longer recovery. After one month I can understand if this system can work or not.
Greetings to all the posters
