I get up at about 8 am and go for a run in the forest. After that I get back home, eat breakfast and at about 11.30 am I go for my first training session, which lasts usually about 1.5 hours. Then I go back home, eat dinner and sleep for about an hour before 3-rd training, also about 1.5 hours long, which starts at 6 p.m. I eat my third meal and the day ends with a supper and some rest. I go to bed at 11 pm to get a good 8-9 hours of sleep.
