131 Days to Paralympic Games.
Training has been going very well. The April showers are very unpredictable and this affects the intensity of my training, especially on the track and road. Still, it has to be done, come rain, wind or shine. I was lucky today because I managed to complete my 10 mile roadwork before the heavens opened. I was joined by my friend Dougal, a very friendly dog who likes to race alongside me for part of my route. He is so cute.
Last Saturday I took part in my first meeting of the season at Kingston track in Surrey. The weather wasn't very good, very windy, but it was still good to be competing again. Mind you, we had to wait a long time before our races and we weren't allowed to have a warm up, but that's athletics. You have to learn to cope with such circumstances so you don't sustain an injury. Also, I felt very proud to be with four other wheelchair racers from Harlow, all introduced to the sport by me, and I was really happy to see them racing and performing well. It gave me a lot of joy.
