You asked me to share a Kenyan running secret from the time I lived and trained with them in Italy and Kenya. One secret that may be helpful to you is this: “Move with the sun.” The Kenyan runners go to bed with and rise with the sun. They know that to stay injury-free, they must recover from workouts.

So be like the Kenyans. Sleep your way to stardom!
Great Job! – Phil
