Firstly, I would like to apologise for the lack of posts over the last few weeks. Due to a heavy work period and injuries preventing me from training, I haven’t really had much to write about.
Last weekend was the Southern Athletics Combined Events which was going to be my last decathlon of the season. Unfortunately, it has been the last competition of the season due to a reoccurring knee injury, which has been hampering my progress over the past few weeks.
My coach and I thought the injury had calmed down but after 4 events at the weekend I had no choice but to pull out. What the injury actually is, is still not known.
I will now have 2 weeks off and then start some rehab before we go back to training in September. To say I am disappointed would be an understatement but after 6 years out I have had a great 11 months back in the sport and I am really looking forward to some rest and family time and then getting back to it in September.
In the meantime, keep a look out for a review I will be writing as part of my ambassador role with Ashmie.
