Conditioning Heptathlon #2

The "Conditioning Heptathlon" #2 was held in Dunedin on the weekend, which I did with Jarrod Adams, Larissa Dyke, Tom Morrison, Chris Richards and Davina.

Many personal bests were achieved by all, with Jarrod Adams winning the competition. I ended up 2nd with a 300 point PB, scoring 6630, with PBs in every event except the 4th (hops for distance). I was most happy with my vertical jump 4cm PB as this should translate into some better high jump which is great points in a heptathlon.

Another highlight was the power clean test we did later that evening, with a PB of 95kg. Super stoked with that...especially considering the fatigue levels from the comp earlier in the day. Bring on a triple figure power clean!! I'm now equal first on the records board for power clean at the Academy of Sport gym in Dunedin with my good friend Tionette Stoddard, NZ Olympic skeleton racer.

I am counting down the days until I see the surgeon (9th June) as I am itching to have surgery and get the screws removed and move closer to being able to do full training. However I know I still have to be patient...there are still 423 days until the Olympics!
