Videos & Pics

Ok, I don’t know if any of these will be of interest to anyone, but here are some videos of training sessions and training locations. Apologies for the shakiness of some of the videos, but I don’t think that they’re too bad considering they were shot using a hand held camera and a mountain bike! Enjoy and as always, let me know if you’ve got any questions.
Mile Repeats on the 3k loop at Georgia Highlands College, January 2012. This mile was about 5:06.
I get a lot of questions about where I train in Georgia. Belows’s a good look at the trails on Lavender Mountain at Berry College. I can jog to these trails from our house and do a 20 mile loop almost entirely on soft surfaces and with whatever kind of terrain/elevation I want.
Another look at the same trail system. The nice thing is how they stay completely shaded in the summer – something very nice in Georgia.
On Possum Trot Rd., where many of my runs start and where I do a lot of my mile repeats during road racing season. It’s a nice straight rolling road about 2-2.5km long. On the run in this video I’ll make my way up the hills in the background and onto the trails in the preceding clips.
My 3×3 Miles workout just prior to the Olympic Trials Marathon. I’m in the bright orange shirt. Pacer is Jay Stephenson, coach at Shorter University. Location is Paris Lake trail at Georgia Highlands College. This was a training location for several countries during the 1996 Olympics. Nice to have facilities like this in town!
No, that’s not me. This is Benard Langat and Robert Letting doing windy 1000′s at the Darlington School, where I used to do most of my track work. The city of Rome has just put in a new Beynon surface on the public track, which is just down the bike trail from our house, so I might be there more often now.
Benard & Robert doing a fartlek on the Quarry Rd. trail at Berry College.
Same fartlek but now on Possum Trot Rd. Nice & Humid that morning, but it comes in handy when that’s how the race conditions are too.
