‘Mourning routine is very important’ – He gets up at 7:45 and makes coffee, he loves it and grinds the beans himself. Vitamins are vital in his diet and so he makes fresh juice as well. The fruit and veg is often organic. He eats cereal with semi-skinned milk and adds some banana and honey :).
He has decided to live near where he trains this makes everything easier. He’s allergic to cats and dogs and can just about handle a gold fish.
He always says how grateful it is for the support he got in Beijing and how organised everyone was. When he goes to training in the mourning’s he often cycle as this is a good warm up he says. ‘Warming up is vital as you cannot expect to go further without taking the little steps first’ Chris said this at Beijing two days before his race.
