Today's episode comes with a slight twist. The air is crisp and there’s snow capped peaks. It is our first episode abroad..... in one of my favourite places to hit the slopes We are coming to you from the region of Tyrol in Austria, where you might expect me to be chatting to a snow sport athlete, but no …. I’m chatting to a man who knows the mountain walls of this alpine region better than anyone else. He's a rock climber, it is Tokyo 2020 Olympic Bronze medalist and 4x World Champion Jakob Shubert.
We chat about growing up in one of the best regions for outdoor sport in the world, Tyrol. The excitement around the inclusion of Lead, Boulder and Speed climbing to the Olympic Games, and what it takes to turn your passion into your profession.
Aimee will be probing for answers from the full spectrum of routines; the early birds who have finely tuned Monday mornings, to the late risers who struggle to get up before 11am. How do elite athletes find the motivation to kick start their week come rain or shine? How do celebrities deliver no matter what the time of day? What knowledge can they pass on?
Each episode drops on a Monday morning and plays out in real time. Aimee will meet each of her guests for a walk and a chat and over the course of the mile she will find out how they cope on a Monday morning - their idiosyncrasies, breakfast routines, alarm noises - and how, when they need to, find the motivation to kick-on through the week.
Dropping every Monday as a bitesize piece of content and weekly dose of motivation - right when you need it - sharing some of Britain's greatest athletes’ secrets on self-motivation, candid thoughts on what they struggle with and a sideways look at some of their more unusual morning habits.
