Its come around so fast.....my first heptathlon in two years!! Needless to say I am rather excited about the upcoming competition in Germany, which is on Thursday and Friday of this week.
Preparation for the competition has gone great here in Switzerland and I am confident of getting the Olympic A standard of 6150 points over the two days.
I have been getting faster in my 200m and hurdles races in the local competitions I have done here in Switzerland in the past weeks. I have also had my second best high jump comp ever, clearing 1.70m, just shy of my PB of 1.71. Training for the other events has been going well; I am fit and healthy and cant wait to get out there!!
For those of you who would like live updates online (the meeting is held over two evenings, so its perfect for a bit of early morning NZ time viewing!) this is the link http://www.iaaf.org/Mini/WCE12/Results/ResultsByEventWCE.aspx?/eventcode=4913/index.aspx
A MASSIVE thanks to all the people who have helped me to get back on the heptathlon start line, and in great shape. I will write again with results on Saturday!
