Life is what your thoughts make it!

I have now had six sessions back on the trampoline and I am really pleased with how everything is going. The impatient part of me is still frustrated at not being able to push on and pick up on where I left before the accident but the rational part of me knows that it wont be long before everything gets back to normal; it's just hard to remain patient when I have spent the whole 4 months in rehab being patient!!

I have a lot to look forward to in the coming weeks and I am doing my best to ensure that I am fit and prepared for it. In a couple weeks (obviously only if I am ready!) I will be going to a World Cup in Poland. I am just really looking forward to getting back into competing. Normally in the final weeks leading up to a competition I will be tapering off my training, relaxing and just working on perfecting routines; not this time! As I have only just got back into training there is so much I need to do- building back all of the moves, putting them into combo's, increasing routine stamina, completing whole routines then practising whole routines- and I only have two weeks left to do that. It will be tough and although I will do my upmost to ensure that I am on top form, I am fully expecting not to feel as ready and in form as I normally would for a competition so it will be a challenge for me and good to see how I deal with it!

How did you all enjoy the football on Saturday?! I really enjoy the World Cup and the whole atmosphere that it brings. I was on the edge of my seat throughout the whole game and just felt desperately sorry for England goalie Rob Green when he made that huge error to equal the score. A classic example of what can happen if you slightly doubt yourself under pressure. I don't know what he was thinking but I know that if I am at training and I think- "dont land on the mat", more than often I will land on the mat! His mistake was a mental one I am sure. It could be that when America were on the attack and coming closer toward him he had just thought too much about what he was or wasn't going to do which resulted in the huge stutter! I felt a bit cringey too about what would be said about him in the media the next day. Typical British attitude- hero if he makes the save and absolute moron, careers over, the bad guy should he make a mistake!! Personally I would like to hear shouts of support for him- he didn't deliberately let in a goal, he made an error. We all make errors in our jobs everyday! I guess it's just part of a goal keepers job and if they make a mistake it makes a huge difference whereas if a player make a mistake you have a chance to get the ball back and put it right. Anyway, next game on Friday..... C'mon England!!
