For those of you who are new to my blogs, thanks for taking the time to read this. I am writing to keep everyone updated on my progress as it happens and also to try and boost the sport of throwing and shot put in general!
So since my last blog, I have become British Indoor Champion and got a new PB (TODAY!). I threw a lifetime best of 18.90m in round 6 against the best that the UK has to offer to become the Champion. Really happy with how my competition went and also really excited about the potential in which I hold this season!
With a lot more left in the tank I am hoping to push on to qualify for my first major championships and be able to compete against some of the best in the world in my event! There is still a long way to go but my coach and I know what we have to offer this year and I cant wait to start producing in the outdoor season!
Training has been going pretty well and if im totally honest, I believe that my preparations and training up to Vienna (my first Indoor meet of 2016) were better than what they were this weekend at the British Championships but I do however feel my technique going into this weekend was a lot stronger. I was hitting better positions in training but the distances were down from what they were before Vienna (only around 30-40cm).
I now look forward to some warm weather training in around 4 weeks time and starting to change my training to aim towards speed and bigger distances! My coach has put me forward for a couple of competitions in the mean time so will let you all know via social media whether I am going to do them.
Thanks for reading and thanks to everyone for the messages of good luck and the support. It really gives me a huge confidence boost going into competitions!
