Old Injury Dealt with in a New Way

Since running with Team Green I have enjoyed seeing my self progress steadily from when I started. That being said pushing my body to its limits every day is going to have a slight draw back. Lately I have been suffering from some Achilles pain, come to find out its my old Achilles tendonitis injury from a while back. Luckily its only a slight pain so it hasn’t kept me from running but the nagging pain in my calf has impeded my ability to push myself. In the past, I seen various doctors that have put me in boots, asked me to purchase calf sleeves, and even regularly see massage therapists to help alleviate the pain. Unfortunately all those solutions didn’t really take the pain away. So I tried to roll out on a foam roller every day again to help loosen up my tight calves. Did that for a couple of days then realized that it did not work I still felt the nagging pain. I thought to myself Could it be that In not warming up properly? No I do all my warm-up jogs and drills
properly so I couldn’t be that. So what could it be?

A Whole New World...

A brief background of myself. I was born and raised in a suburb of Oklahoma City called Edmond and of course traveled around the country, but always returned home. I went to high school at Edmond North High School and did not take my running career seriously until the start of my junior year. Growing up I always imagined playing basketball and played throughout my whole life and during the off season I would run cross country and track just to stay in shape. However, when high school started I tried out for the team but unfortunately didn't make it. Of course I was bummed out and not sure exactly what was next because I have always depended on basketball to be the sport to chase after. I thought to myself I guess I can just run now and I’ve been doing that ever since. I have wondered what things would be like if I pursued basketball further, but running is my life now and it brings me true happiness even when suffering through workouts and long runs.

A word from the Coach... Aug 10th

Team Green is not a one-man show. Training athletes to consistently achieve their goals is a complicated process that require much more than a coach. While the coach may be the focal point of attention, the truth is, like Cross Country, the program is only as good as the team. The support team that keeps TGR rolling is as good as any!

When problems occur we need the best help possible and we have it with Dr. Stephen Clouthier, Dr. Shaun Lehmann and Adrienne Langelier, MA LPC.

What now.... Keep Running, with TGR!

Originally being from Humble, Texas I have no problem adapting to these humid summers and short winters. I have just recently graduated from the best university in the world which is PrairieView A&M University. After finishing off my season I was in total shock that those 4 years went by so fast. I recall the day I sat at the track and just started thinking of the time I spent at the PVAMU track. I had some great moments in terms of my collegiate track and field career. I began asking myself what was my next move going to be? I felt like I had so much left to give and still wanted to compete. With several recommendations from respectable coaches and athletes I ultimately got in contact with Coach Green. He and the team welcomed me to the program with open arms and let me know from the very beginning that this would not be easy. I am a pretty tough guy, I knew it would take a lot more than that to scare me off.
