Today I competed in Loughborough in 60m U20W hurdles, I was pleased with my race as I have just moved up an age group and my times so far have been consistent. I ran 8.04secs in my 60m sprint, which I am pleased with as it is my first race of 2019. I am excited for my next competitions and hope to continue improving.

I have started my winter training and am working hard to try and improve my speed and strength. I have started hill training and am doing longer endurance training at the track, all in order to improve my performances and achieve PBS.

I'm going to continue working hard throughout my winter training so that I can perform to the best of my ability during the indoor season.

Winter training

22nd Sep, 2018

My season has now come to an end and I am getting ready to start my winter training. My season has had its ups and downs, my highlights were winning gold at the indoor nationals and a bronze medal at the outdoor nationals. However, I was very disappointed with my performance at English schools and can only hope to perform better next year through hard work and persistence.
I would once again like to thank Go Gold for supporting me throughout my training and competitions, I am extremely grateful.

Winter training

7th Oct, 2017

Today I had my first winter training hill session. My training group trains in Western Park on Saturday mornings throughout the first part of winter training, this is to build up our strength and endurance. I hope to improve my stamina and strength, enabling me to push harder whilst running a hurdles race. I am hoping that after winter training I will be stronger and fitter, ready for the season ahead.

Derby Open Meet

10th Sep, 2017

Today I competed in my last competition for the season. I ran my first 400m and was pleased with my time.

I am really pleased with how my season has gone this year, coming second at English Schools, meaning I was through to represent England, and also coming second at my first ever international competition. I was quite disappointed with my performance at the England Championships as I came seventh and was hoping to do better, however I can't complain overall as I achieved what I had worked hard to.
