Q & A with Coach Teo
Three things an athlete can do to immediately improve their performance or their life?
#1 Get Quality sleep -> 8 hours at least
#2 Manage Stress -> work, girlfriend/boyfriend/husband/wife/kids/training/life
#3 Enjoy the little moments in Training -> As you become a more experienced athlete, PRs don’t come regularly. So if you chase PRs you will have more miserable training days than good. And little moments/wins happen daily. Just waking up and feeling good and training should be a win.
What is a habit or daily routine of yours that positively impacts your day?
I don’t watch or listen to the news, commercials, advertisements. I look up at the sky for rain and I rely on my senses as much as possible.
