Kicking off the New Year in New Zealand

After a trying December, when the conditions were so terrible that I couldn’t do any road running whatsoever I’m off to the World Championships in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Although we were snowed in, I didn’t stop training and had to content myself with extra strength and conditioning sessions as well as indoor training in Lee Valley. I also spent a week in Lanzarote, at Club La Santa, which was great! It did seem as though I was training with all Eastern Europe’s athletes!

But the big focus now is the Worlds, I’m in New Zealand from January 5th and will be competing in the 200m and the Marathon. I’m feeling pretty confident and despite the less than ideal snowy conditions back home in the lead up the meet, I’m fit to race and raring to go.
