The pre-Olympic year has now officially started and already we can feel the extra focus and emphasis on getting our training programme just right so the team peaks at just the right time. I celebrated my 21st birthday at a private party with family and friends on Saturday 8 January before joining the rest of the GB team at the Lilleshall National Sports Centre on the 10th for our first GB training camp of 2011.
We spent the next seven days analysing our fitness, diet, training programme, current/new skills and our short term/long term goals. The focus is now on building the correct training programme around the data gathered so we achieve our goals over the coming year.
We now have two weeks at our personal gyms before flying to
Cancun, Mexico for the 2nd GB training Camp of 2011 where we will be meeting up with the Japanese team for two weeks of intense training and preparation for the Berlin European Championships in April.
