New Year…New Goals

Hey Everyone, 

I realise it’s been a while – Sorry!

Yes, I got to have a rest day for Christmas and overindulged in dessert because calories don’t count on Christmas Day! 😉

As the saying goes New Year New Me, right?

Well no, not for me exactly, this year I haven’t done any new year’s resolutions.  

I did however sit down with my team (thanks Sam and Dave) late last year and set out my goals for this yearIt’s important to sit down and make sure we are all on the same page and can plan for the desired outcomes.

What are my goals for the Year?

1. Beat my Personal Best times
2. Race overseas

The start of the year is always the busiest time for me. I have the annual Summer Down Under competition which is the opportunity to race with some of the best wheelchair racers in the world. As always it’s in Canberra and I’m super keen to see how I go. It’ll be a litmus rest of how my training is going.

How do I prepare for events like these?

Race locally and try and beat my personal best – already completed this goal for 2020 this year – starting the year on the right track 😊.

Nutrition – Make sure I’m eating the right things – dietary specific.

Hydration – Getting enough water and salt especially after training and racing to reduce muscle cramping.

Ensure that all my equipment is running correctly 

Then the rest is up to me, 

Until next time,
