Sweet Home Arizona

As the New Year comes along, so too do new challenges and changes…This fall, I made the decision to switch to a new coach and training group. It wasn’t a decision that I made quickly or easily; but in the end, something that I thought needed to be done. I’ve joined the National Training Center under the supervision of Wynn Gmitroski (coach of World Silver medalist Gary Reed) and look forward to working with him over the next couple of years.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get off to the best of starts with the new group since I had to have sports hernia surgery on November 30, 2010.  Surgery left a nice scar (bye bye modeling career), but it took care of the pain I’d been having for almost a year, so I’d say it was worth it!
I wasn’t able to do any real training before the surgery and I was pretty much useless, (more so than normal), for about 3 weeks after the surgery. So, upon my arrival in Scottsdale, AZ, after about 7 months of no training, I was fat and out of shape.
Things progressed rather slowly for the first few weeks (barely being able to do a lap of the track without dying) and I was still having pain in my groin/lower abs. But, in the last week or so, it really seems like I’ve finally turned the corner and my comeback is on!!
It feels like there’s a lot to say since I’ve just started this thing, so I’ll try to jot down some more this weekend while I’m lying at the pool enjoying the 26/80 degree weather we have here…Those numbers are Celsius and Fahrenheit, by the way, to accommodate my Canadian and American readers!
