The first can of beer is easy, as is the first lap. Lewis runs the first lap almost as hard as he can, but slows down a little shortly before the transit zone.



The second beer is much harder to drink because you are out of breath in the first 400m. At this point, Lewis advises burping because the release of gas makes the next lap much more comfortable.

He also recommends slowing down at the end of the second lap to catch your breath, and in the transit zone, do not immediately rush to drink, but first restore your breath.



The third beer is the hardest to drink. Lewis himself empties the jar in short sips and continues to run at a steady pace, even if the rivals have pulled ahead.



After drinking the fourth beer, at the finish lap Lewis accelerates gradually, every 100 meters. Sprinting too early can lead to vomiting resulting in a penalty loop.
