• Rudisha Soon to Return to Full Training

Article source:

History's fastest 800m runner David Rudisha is planning to return to full training in 3 weeks after recovering from a knee injury he picked up in June in New York.

"I plan to start light training by Dec. 1. Slow and nice it will be. I want to ease into the running mood without much hustle, " said Rudisha Wednesday in Nairobi.

"I will be starting from Zero and there is too much ground to cover before I can say am back. Injuries have a way of humbling athletes and I will take one day at a time as I go through my training,"  Said Kenyan.

"The rehabilitation has been nice. It has however left me in and out of Kenya to Germany treatment and now, I can say the worst is over and it is just a matter of weeks before I return to training."

After training in Kenya Rudisha's is planning to move his training base to Australia in February and to open the 2014 season in March with two races in Melbourne  and Sydney.

"The plan is to ease back into training and see how the body responds. We will take it slowly and hopefully by February, I plan to move my camp to Australia," he said.

"But that does not mean that training here in Kenya is bad. In fact the best places to train is in Iten and Ngong and I will miss the atmosphere there. But the programme I have with my manager is to move to Australia and see how I will do in competition."

Unlike other years, Rudisha is not planning to race a 400m to prepare better for the 800m in 2014.

"I will only focus on the 800m races. To run in 400m will demand to much in training and because I ma just coming from injury, I will want to be reserved. So I will only compete in 800m races," he said.
