Over the weekend I became British Champion once again in tough conditions at the World Championship trials in Birmingham.
A blustery swirling wind which was mostly a 3 metre per second tail wind made it very tough for there to be big performances but I am happy to once again be named British champion, which of course was the most important thing going into the weekend. For the first time in my career I suffered with really bad cramps in both calfs which made it almost impossible for me to be able to apply power when I wanted to, I worked with the physio whilst warming up as it was occurring even before the competition started which did help but never the less it was a major factor in my performance being so low.
On the bright side the only way is up! I am in great physical shape and am ready to produce something very good in the not so distant future. I will compete in Barcalona in a couple of days time in a field full of good athletes and in good conditions so it would be the perfect opportunity for me to show what kind of shape I am really in.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the messages of support over the weekend, it means a lot for me to win a British title and being the only Welsh athlete to win over the weekend as they certainly don’t come easy.
