Below are two articles from Neil Scholes at Kinetic-Revolution.com, where he discusses observations from his time spent with the Kenyan Olympic Team.
Kinetic Revolution is a wealth of information, and definitely worth spending some time at to increase your knowledge base.
While the Kenyan athletes he worked with have abilities far beyond most of ours, we can still learn from them and apply their work ethics and habits to our own, in a hope to better ourselves.
Over the last two weeks it has been my privilege to work with the members of the Kenyan Olympic Athletic Squad, at their holding camp at Bristol, prior to the Olympic Games in London.
This gave me an ideal opportunity to observe them up close and to see all of their training routines, what they did outside of training, what they ate and how they conducted themselves in training and in life.
In this first blog post I simply want list of some of the sometimes surprising aspects I learned about the Kenyans during my time with them. In later posts I’ll then expand on many of these points.
The aim of this specific post isn’t to dissect or analyze their training methods and practices. Here I just want to give a brief account of my overall impressions having spent two weeks working with the squad.
