In January of this year I received some disheartening news about my physical health. Even though I have been an endurance athlete for many years racing in triathlons, marathons and century rides my weight and blood pressure were a cause of concern. I made a life style choice to eat better and be more attentive to my physical fitness. Enter Rod. The training with Rod has helped my physical fitness in ways that surprise me to this day. I have not quit racing in endurance events. However, because of Rod’s attention to detail my strength and stamina have improved! I beat a personal record in a half marathon this last October in San Francisco. With few places to train for the hills in Texas, Rod’s strength training was crucial in running, not walking I’m proud to say, the hills in San Francisco. Overall my average run pace has improved from a 13 min/mile to an 11 min/mile! That’s a big deal to me!! Especially since the only new addition to my training is Rod. Thank you Rod for helping me not only reach my overall health goal (weight is down 19 lbs and blood pressure is good), but helping believe that I can achieve more!! I’m looking forward to our next session!
