What a busy month!

What a busy month! I just haven't stopped! My last university exam was on May 18th and since then I've just been training and travelling as I've competed in a few races aboard. Two weeks ago I was in Greece where I competed in my first hurdles race. That was run in 56.75.


The following week I travelled to Switzerland whereby I won I ran my race in 57.01. So far so good bearing in mind I've just come back from a quad injury that happened at the British University Championships (BUCS). My next race will be the South of England Championships held in Watford. So that's what I'm working towards at the moment.

Other than training hard, I have A LOT of free time on my hands seeing as uni has finished until October - I love being a student! I'm gonna make the most of trying to meet up with friends and family. I don't really have any hobbies except I love to shop shop shop. And moving back home I've realised how much stuff I actually own (Too much) lol. 

Well that's enough from me but you won't be getting rid of me that easy as I'll be back with another update soon. X
