7 Days to go!

In 7 days my outdoor season will officially start for 2017. To say I’m not nervous would be lying. When you have such high expatiations of yourself its hard not to get a little nervous, especially when this will be my first decathlon in 6 years.

First Outdoor Competition of The Season

Since finding out about the issues with my shins/calves training hasn’t been great and neither has my diet. But this is something that all athletes go through and it’s a tough dealing with certain little injuries. I suppose when you starve yourself of certain foods when there comes a point of being able to have them you just go all in, well I do anyway.

Northeast Pentathlon Championships Sunday 19th March

On Saturday I made the long trip up to Gateshead for my final indoor competition of the season. This was going to be a real test as it would be the first time I had completed 5 events in one day, for several years. It wasn’t a traditional pentathlon which would normally include, hurdles, long jump, shot putt, high jump and 1000m but the 1000m was changed to a flat 60m sprint due to the limitations of the indoor facility.
