Well a lot has happened since my last post. We (Rowing Ireland) have gone through the entire world under 23 rowing regatta and have enjoyed every minute of it!! The pair I was in with Shane is now ranked 9th in the world at our level which considering the time we had together and our lack of experience racing this type of boat was very pleasing. Hopefully next year if we are both good enough we will be given the chance to improve that ranking and try to get a medal :)
The team arrived back in Ireland very early this morning at 3am. I have since arrived home to see my parents for a few hours, to regale stories of the adventures in Lithuania, before embarking on my first proper holiday in a few years. I am going on a trip to visit my sisters in England as I have not spent much time with them due to sport commitments.
On my return I resume studying for my August exams while continuing training so that once they are over Shane and I can begin preparing for our next challenge, the ‘World University Rowing Championships’ in Kazan, Russia.
Until next time,
Work hard at the things you enjoy so that you might have no regrets!
