Training in Kenya

One day I would love to go to Kenya for a training camp. I have done a bit of research and it is not impossible logistically or prohibitive price wise - it's just a matter of timing and other responsibilities (and no doubt some negotiation ... ).  Definitely not on the cards in 2012 with our big trip to the US and then tenative plans for Melbourne and Tassie later in the year but if I win Lotto (would have to buy a ticket first) who knows.

Here are some links and videos:



Some of these are a bit long and you get the idea fairly early on but I have included them for interest.  The third video has been distributed fairly widely (Flotrack, Lets Run etc).  It's worth letting it load and going to about 18.30 in to see Asbel Kiprop getting right back to basics.

The very last video is the end result ...
