Sport and You - Paula Radcliffe

Standing 1:72 tall Paula is literally a head above most of her female rival athletes. 

How many miles per week does Paula train? About 150-miles per week, less when approaching a serious competition.

Does Paula ever take time off? Yes at the end of a long season she will take a couple of weeks vacation where she will jog to keep in shape. The Caribbean is a favourite destination.

Does Paula stick to a strict diet? No, but she eats by personal choice a good healthy diet.

What's with those knee high socks? They help with the circulation of the blood. Blood carries oxygen to the muscles allowing the fibres to work efficiently.
