I was at my 1st competition of the season yesterday! and myself and my athletics club (Chester-le-street AC) did great!
I woke up on that morning excited, i was jumping around the house getting ready to go! When we arrived, we did our normal warm up as we would do it at training. I felt more relaxed after the warm up.
My 1st event of the day was the 100m. I felt really relaxed and very confident about the race. There was 4 girls in my heat. I came 4th but I got a brand new p.b! 14.6! knocked 0.4 second off my old time and I have been working really hard on my 100m in training!
2nd event was my long jump. At my 1st jump I had a very bad start! But I came with a good comeback! I also got a p.b in the event; 3.51m I wanted a higher distance but I just started the long jump a few weeks ago since France! But I have a lot more competitions coming up! I will have a lot chances to get better!
My 3rd and final event of the day was the 200m. I was so tired and hot because it was at the end of the day and the weather was really hot! I had 4 girls in my heat. I felt a bit confident because I worked on my blocks and did a small warm up before the race. I came 4th and I knocked a second off my old p.b; 31.1! I was not expecting to get a p.b because I felt so tired and hot! But I was very happy!
Everyone else in my team did great! Gaining new p.bs! We all did fantastic!
I would like to say a BIG thank you to all my friends and family for the support before the competition!
My next competition is next Wednesday (the day I go and meet my local ASDA!!) . 1st event of the Grand Prix! Its a outdoor league which will be happening once a month until August!
