Just a heads up on how I make Worlds–Since I finished 4th at the USA Champs, the throwers who were 2nd and 3rd have until August 8th or 9th to chase the standard since neither have it yet. I will make the team if neither hit it or if only one hits it. I will not make it if both hit the standard.
How has your training been going recently?
My training has been on hold for a little due to a back injury that began what seemed like in Japan. It isn’t something that would put me out for a while but I am just a little precautions with training and throwing. I’ve been trying to heal it the “right way” and have been seeing a chiropractor/ strength trainer who I was actually referred to by my girlfriend from her back injury.
What is the focus of your training schedule?
The focus has been on my core and speed. I did a good job in the off-season and during the season with my strength but just throwing and lifting has proved to be the wrong way to go.
Is there anything new you are implementing into your training?
The new things I have been doing are more sprints, more shoulder workouts as well as more core strengthening exercises.
What technical issues are you working on?
My issue has always been throwing too high and too far right. During the off-season I had worked on coming through the point better with the javelin but it had caused a few things that threw my timing off. I’ve begun working on staying long and staying back on the javelin like I used to.
Where are you currently training?
I am currently training at two places, Illinois State University most of the week and at the College of Dupage on weekends/ throwing with my girlfriend.
Will you be attending any training camps at another site? If so, where and when?
Not sure when or where I would go for any training camps so we will see what I hear.
Who is your current coach?
I do not have a coach currently. Have been doing everything on my own since last year.
Are you currently working a job?
I am not currently working, I have been looking for jobs but it is hard because of the situation I am in waiting to see if I make Worlds.
What competitions do you have planned?
Right now there are no competitions planned. If I make Worlds, I think it will open my season for one or two after the championships.
When will you travel to Asia? When will you travel to Beijing?
I believe it would be mid-August.
Will any friends or family be travelling to Beijing?
None of my friends or family will be traveling to Beijing. Thanks
