This is part two of David Hunter's feature on Clayton Murphy's ecstacy then agony. It is a piece for all coaches and athletes to read. There are times that the best laid plans do not work out.

How do you learn from them? How do you get back on the proverbial horse? That is the question.

Clayton Murphy provides some thoughts on where 2018-20 are going. It should be exciting.

Nick Willis may be the most under rated miler of his era. His bronze medal in 2016 was an amazing feat in Rio, and if you rewatch the moves over the last 50 meters, Nick Willis moved worthy of Bernard Lagat at his finest.

Nick Willis, like all track gladiators, is looking for new challenges. He wants to double, perhaps over 1500 meters and 5000 meters in the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

I thought that this story on Nick Willis, by RRW's David Monti would be a good read for a Saturday morning.

Blake for Gold Coast
KINGSTON (JAM): Former world 100m champion Yohan Blake is targeting the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast next April, informs the Jamaica Star. "I feel very good, my coach is happy, training is going great and I am looking forward to this season," said Blake. "I kick it off with the Commonwealth Games and so I am going to start from there. I just want to keep focused because I am over all my injuries," he said.
RunBlogRun opines: Yohan Blake was less than spectacular in 2017. The big question is when and if Yohan Blake can retake the form that he had in 2011 and 2012. That was five years ago. Blake is entertaining, but he needs to find his voice and his feet. We wish him good luck in performing well in the April 2018 Commonwealth Games. To regain form is a tough job. To overcome injuries, and regain fitness is even tougher.
