Pushed To The Limit

In general, I think what I'd say to anyone who feels pushed to their fitness limits, or is experiencing a fitness barrier, is to stay strong! Pain is short-lived, but the joy of beating your fears or overcoming obstacles will remain with you for long time. That's what I've learnt to do and I'm a much better athlete for it.

Come Rio 2016, I Will Be Back Challenging for the Gold Medal Once Again

I'm in a very good place now and it's nice to feel like an athlete again. It feels as though my body was trapped and it's waiting to be released. Now it's just a countdown to competing again. I'm watching my competitors and thinking "I can't wait to race you again!" I'm quietly confident that come Rio 2016, I will be back challenging for the gold medal once again.
