Here i go again, off on my travels. This time i am heading out to the world championships, which are being held in Shanghai.
First we are heading out to Osaka for a 10 day holding camp with the rest of the British swim team. I am so excited about getting out there and finishing off my preparations for the world championships. Once i get out to Osaka i will start tapering which i am really looking forward to. It means i get to start coming down in meters in the pool and i will cut my gym program right down. I love this time of year as i start feeling really good in the water and super fast!!! I love being in the holding camp with the rest of the team, we get to catch up with everyone and we normally have a few quiz nights. Everyone gets very competitive.
After the holding camp we will then head to Shanghai. I start competing on the 3rd day of the meet, which is the 200 freestyle. its going to be a very different experience to the last world champs. In Rome i was swimming nearly everyday and had a multiple of events, in Shanghai i will just have the 200m and 4×200. Its quite nice to only have a couple of events to focus on. I am really looking forward to getting in there and racing the best people in the world. Its a great stepping stone leading into the olympic games.
I will keep you updated on how things go and will be updating twitter as much as i can.
