Florida means lizards, and we caught this guy doing some push-ups outside the team hotel. He's probably just trying to keep up with the fitness levels of the U.S. players. That's not easy as the players are looking quite fit and once again ran the beep test at the beginning of camp. The heat certainly made the test a bit harder, but the players, as usual, busted it out. As the players are on a bit different training schedules according to when their WPS matches are on the weekends, one group did the beep test yesterday and one ran it today. Heather O'Reilly and Christie Rampone ruled the day yesterday while Lauren Cheney put in an impressive score today.
The players were told by U.S. fitness coach Dawn Scott that this was the last time they would run the beep test full out before the Women's World Cup. And the players rejoiced.
Running alone, Lauren Cheney -- aka, The Machine -- is urged on by her teammates
