Tenerife Training

I am writing this from Tenerife as I am out here on a three week training camp with the rest of the squad from Loughborough.

I absolutely love being in the sun and training outdoors. Of course, I am also very happy training at Loughborough as the facilities are great. However, it is nice to get away from the cold weather and have the feeling of the sun on my back when I am training.

There is now not long at all to go until the Olympic trials in March. These will take place in the new Aquatics Centre in London.

This training camp in Tenerife is my last period of hard training before the trials. Once I return to the UK I will start to taper down and this means an altered training regime prior to racing.

I cannot believe how quickly the Olympic trials have come around. It seems like the last Olympic trials were five minutes ago!

I am really looking forward to getting to London and racing in the Olympic pool. It is such an exciting time for sport in Great Britain at the moment and it is wonderful to be part of it.

The trials start on Saturday 3rd March and run until Friday 9th March. I will be updating my twitter account @joannejackson86 with the results, including mine.

Please keep a look out and your good luck tweets are always welcomed!
