Hi It's Abby here!

It’s Wednesday 28th June and I thought I’d write my blog. This month has been quite jam packed, some ups and downs. I’ve had a cold for about 2 months and it wasn’t going away, it wasn’t too bad at the start of the month but then it got worse, it had started to affect my training. So, I made a big decision to pull out of training for a week and recover. The week really helped my body to recover from my illness and it helped me to come back stronger. Training has been a lot harder this month as I am on the build up to the British Championships, the sessions have been a lot more tiring. I have qualified for the British Championships in the 200 Fly and I am ranked 16th. I am not seeded to make the final, but that is my goal, and then I will just see what happens from there..! We had our first day of our Summer Club Championships on the 18th June and I did 7 races, I had a good afternoon of racing. I got a few pbs and my 200 fly race went really well! I swam 2.20.25 which was a 4 second pb and I felt really confident and relaxed when I was swimming. My new 25 metre 200 fly pb currently ranks me 5th in Great Britain, which I can’t really believe, but it gives me lots of confidence for the British Champs (which we swim in a 50 metre pool) at the end of July! So, my next blog will be after the British Championships, I am really excited and I am hoping for a brilliant outcome! Wish me luck!

Good luck Abby! We are all hugely excited for you and hope you have a fantastic time at the British Championships!
