ovi8: I'm in moscow! - Sunday, July 10, 2011
Mike Vogel: So a couple of months of summer left. How do you spend a rest of your summer? How your training program changed or evolved since you came in the league 6 years ago?
AO: I was here, I talked to Nemo [Caps' strength and conditioning coach Mark Nemish - tj] and I explained the whole situation, I talked to Bruce I talked to George and explained the whole situation, so I probably gonna start training like right away when I come back to Moscow.
It's gonna be tomorrow... not tomorrow, probably like Wednesday or Thursday and... I don't wanna... the situation has changed and I don’t want to say about it, I don’t want to talk about it, but I’m gonna decide on some little things, but don’t worry; I’m gonna be in good shape and I’ll be ready for the year because this is a very important year for Caps and for me, too.”
I am a bit worried. He had to explain the whole situation? Sounds like Ovi doesn't have a detailed plan and a fitness coach for now. And it's harder to train on your own, even for athletes like Alex Ovechkin. BTW, Crosby skates for the last couple of weeks already. In his 6 years in the league Ovi never started on ice training before August, so it's not a big deal, just sayin'.
