Hi! This is my first blog, so it might not be perfect! I’m going to tell you what has been happening over this Christmas, and what I will be doing over the next couple of weeks as I start my 2017 gymnastics year. I’m going to make this year the best year of all.
Over Christmas I have been training, but I’ve also had time off for fun at home. It’s now time to get back to full gym training, and I know that I definitely have to work hard this year because I have an important Level 3 compulsory competition in March and my very first GB squad camp the first weekend in January. I need to get my flexibility and strength up ready for those things. At my GB camp I will be tested on different tasks to measure my fitness and flexibility and strength. I want to be at my best.
I’m going to go up to Lilleshall National Sports Centre, about 4 hours drive in the car, on Friday and I’m feeling scared, but more excited than scared! When we get there my family will stay over for one night, but will then leave me with my coach, Kelly, and the British Gymnastics national coaches for the weekend. I’ll be training with other girls that got into the GB squad as well. One of girls I know the most is my friend, Madi, and I hope I can share a room with her. My Mum and her Mum have already been texting about meeting up in the hotel.
Right, I need to go now because I need to practice at home my straddle lever to handstand.
