I kind of thought that I was just bashing around back then and ended up getting lucky. Turns out I was actually doing some seriously specific track training; in fact most of the sessions I am back doing these days. There was a spell (after my first big result) that I started "getting serious" and changed my whole approach- probably a good thing that I got picked up by GB before doing too much damage eh!
All the specific training stuff is quite boring when it's out of context, so instead I wanted to share the ridiculous parts so we can laugh at me.Here goes.
|First off, this is the (self designed) cover on one of the diaries. Like, seriously? I have female Olympians on the back cover, so I may have been a perv but at least I wasn't sexist. |
|It wasn't always clear that I had the kind of drive needed to be a top athlete...|
|But at least I knew that track league was something to be taken VERY seriously.|
|Still struggling to actually do that "training" thing though. Hhhhmmmmm.|
|Clearly aware of my own ineptitude, I'm reluctant to put my hand up for British Cycling's development programme...|
|But this is the dramatic last entry before I go digital. The good news is I start getting better!!|
|Even if I did never quite manage to crack this one.|
