Quote Of The Day
“The biggest problem I tried to overcome in my career was jet lag and trying to adjust to the European time zone, which I never did. So, to combat that I just used to stay on the East Coast time zone for the entire European summer. I would often go to bed between 4am and 6am and wake up in the afternoon. I typically didn’t run until between 8-10pm, which was about 2-4pm East Coast time. … Some people would see me up at 3am and would then comment, ‘do you know how late it is? You know you are running tomorrow?’ Yet many athletes would be awake for 17 or 18 hours before they raced. To me, being awake six or so hours before I raced was no big deal.”
– Former Olympic and four-time World hurdling champion Allen Johnson talking about how he dealt with his struggles with jet lag when on the European circuit.
