Training in Italy
Just got back from Italy where I was training with Formula Medicine. What a great week! I’ve trained hard in the past, but this week I had to really step it up as they put me through some really hard tests. I really enjoyed being pushed beyond my boundaries though. all of the coaches there are first class and they work with many F1 drivers. They’ve given me a personalised programme to work with which I am now taking to the gym every day.
Tomorrow I’m visiting the Hewland factory as part of the MSA Race Elite scheme. Hewland are probably the world leaders in race car transmissions so it should be pretty interesting!
On wednesday I’m off to hockenheim where, as you know, I scored my first points of the year. this time, I want to get my first win of the year, and I think this is a realistic aim. The car feels good now, I feel good now, so why not?
I’ll keep you posted and let you know how it goes...
