As many of you know I'm in Boston for the next 6 weeks preparing for the biggest job interview of my life: Pro Day. In order to put my best foot forward, I've enlisted the help of Coach Carl Valle. Carl has trained numerous Olympians, various athletes from the NFL and MLB and is a genius in the field of human performance. Carl has a holistic approach to training in which all the elements bleed together to create a whole that is even greater than the sum of the parts. I'm very excited to be here and I'm anticipating fantastic results.
I'm living in the town of Waltham (sounds like WALL-THAM rather than WAL-THUMB), leave it up to the yankees to complicate such an issue, just kidding! From everything I have seen it's a charming little town and everyone that I've met has been very kind. I'm weight-training at Excel Sport and Fitness in Waltham and the facility is top notch, everything I need and more. For my sprint training I go to the Reggie Lewis Center in Roxbury, the track is a Mondo surface and extremely fast. My sessions thus far have been enlightening, I can't imagine where I'll be come March.
While I spend most of my day lifting, sprinting, eating and sleeping; I spend the rest of it thinking of my beautiful wife Lauren! I'm so blessed to have her and I love her with everything I am. She has been so supportive of me, my lifelong dream of playing in the NFL has truly become "our" dream and I'm working just as much for her as I am for myself. I love you girl!
I'll do my best to stay current with this blog and keep everyone aware of my day to day movements. Gotta run and eat my last meal of the day, cottage cheese with fruit and a few slices of turkey. Massage and bodywork at 9:30 in the morning!
