Age grouper of the week
Steve Hatton from Olympia, Washington has taken it out this week. He managed to beat his PB by 15mins at the Nappa Half. The reason he is our age grouper of the week is because John, his coach, told him to hold back on the swim and bike. He came off the bike 6mins slower than last year but managed to run 20mins faster! It was a great display of trusting your plan. Well done Steve.
High 5 for long haul travel tips
1. Get an isle seat.
2. Say something to the person next to you when you get on the flight.
3. When you get on the flight switch to local time where you are going. Stay awake or go to sleep, pills are ok.
4. Take a drink bottle (empty) and energy drink powder in hand luggage.
5. Don’t be afraid to ask for extra food. John’s tip - always ask different hostesses
