11 December

saw the guys go through arguably the toughest day of their training block so far. In common with the other nasty sessions, it started on the track at Tropical Park.

For the second time this block, they hammered out ten 200 metre sprints, only this time they had less time to complete them, and less time to recover in between.

With the temperature and humidity both in the 80's, this one turned into a mental battle within the first few sprints.

As always, Andy and Ross ran all the rep's, with the oldies joining in when their creaking bones allowed. They are, after all, all in training for the Winter Olympics.

The track sessions they've done to date have looked nasty, but this one took it to a whole new level, the recovery times never seeming enough.

And so they went on, again and again, ten times in total. Deep into the session the heads began to wobble in the finishing straight...

The short drive to lunch was an unusually quiet one as people slowly came back to life under the blast of the air-con. It was thirty minutes before the banter was restored to pre-session levels.

Fed and refreshed, they hit the courts for a short hit at the University of Miami.

Interesting look from fitness trainer Matt Little today.

With Dani 'The Fat' Vallverdu in the library for five hours a day, Carlos came to down to watch them hit in the early evening light.

As if all that wasn't enough, they did a two hour core session when they got back home too.

Tomorrow's a half-day, but even that includes 1.5 hrs in a Bikram Yoga studio. Tough stuff.
