Alcohol. Does it affect athletic performance?  Mikki tells us yes or no and if so why.  We combine the Hot Property Interview and Workout of the Week and bring back Professor Paul Laursen.  Paul leads the Performance Physiology Team at High Performance Sport New Zealand.  In this episode (Part 1 of a 2 part interview) Paul and Bev talk about 'Heat Adaptation'.  Why should we heat adapt, what's happening in the body when we do adapt and how does it help athletic performance.  In The Geek Out Mikki tells us about the best vitamins to take for heat adaptation and hot climates.  In this week's 5 Minute Focus Bev chats to Rob Dallimore of Foot Traffic Coaching.  Rob is a Field Marketing Rep for Magellan GPS Products in New Zealand and tells us about the range of products they offer for runners, cyclists and triathletes.  And we're delighted this episode to be giving away a Magellan Echo watch!!  To be in with a chance to win send us a photo of the most beautiful place you could imagine yourself running and wearing the watch.  See Facebook for details.  Competition ends Sunday 31 August 2014.
