Throwing Up Some Dollies

Beautiful conditions at Gateshead for last night’s competition, before I threw my girlfriend asked what I was going to use as an excuse for throwing like a girl – that’s confidence for you. Thankfully I didn’t need any excuses because I threw a season’s best 31.60 metres. It was nice to go over 30 metres for the first time this season, my first three throws were all over 30 metres and I built up nicely, however my second three throws were not so good as I tightened up a bit, I was slightly disappointed I couldn’t build on my first set. Overall its a step in the right direction and a good confidence boost ahead of the nationals.

There’s a lot of improvement to come, both technically and physically, it was by no means my normal preparation for a competition, I spoke at a London 2012: Student Leadership Conference in the afternoon before heading to work. So it was a very tiring day and after I’d thrown I was extremely tired – Which is why I’ve got to be happy with the result.
