Beware New Year Resolutions

www.kizoa.com_collage_2016-01-04_18-27-38

Keeping fit is always a good idea but if you start a new exercise regime you need to make sure your body is ready.

See your osteopath if you have any aches, pains or injuries even if they’re only niggles. You’re more likely to succeed in your quest for a leaner, fitter you. Good luck

Injury Woes – but Sophie ready to get back on Track

For the majority of the 2014 outdoor season, I spent most of my time as a spectator on a spin bike. Achilles tendinopathy in my right foot caused me to finish my season at the end of May. As I wasn’t able to train or compete all summer, I was determined to make the most out of the 2015 season. However, my injury had other plans.

Getting back on track

Getting back on track

With plenty of completed bike sessions, rehab exercises, treatment and recovery, my injury started to improve. I was soon able to jog, which over time turned into steady running. After a while, I was able to complete sessions again and things were looking brighter. At university, I continued with my rehab exercises to ensure I wouldn’t have any problems and for some time, it seemed to work. For many months, I was able to train without any pain and it appeared that my injury had finally healed.

During the Easter break, I was lucky enough to go on an altitude training camp with my university to Font Romeu, France. It was a great experience running in the mountains and it benefitted my fitness greatly. I would love to go there again next year.

However, once I returned home, the problems started again. About a week before the BUCS outdoor championships, I completed a speed session. The session went well and I was happy with the way I was running, especially with a competition coming up. Unfortunately, that evening, my Achilles was sore and inflamed. I spoke to my coaches and made a joint decision to pull out of the race. I was devastated. I felt like all my progress had stepped back a whole year. I went straight back to cross-training, rehab and treatment. Along with the sore Achilles also came a tight back. Due to my constant limping, I was straining my posture. However, thanks to Sara’s hard work at Cedar Hall, she has managed to get my posture back into the correct position.

At the moment, things are looking positive! I am not back to training fully yet but I am slowly getting there which is exciting! My aim for this year is to get fit and strong, and hopefully be ready to race for the indoor season.

The Sweet Taste of Success – Khai Style

Success

Is the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. So whether that is winning a Gold medal at the Olympics or even getting up early for school, you have succeeded. Now even though these points are not similar there is a common word used to accomplish this and that is WORK.

Yes, you even have to work to get out of bed because we all love to lay in especially if we have been up all night and have to get up early but in order to succeed we MUST work for it. Everyone who is successful has had to work for it, in my case, Athletics, hurdles to be exact.

Racing to Success

Racing to Success

I started off as a thrower but transitioned into a runner and that didn’t happen overnight. I had to work to transition my power from my arms to my legs. As we all know Speed+Strength=Power and you have to work hard to accomplish even one of these elements in order to achieve your main goal. This requires a lot of work.

Now when I talk work I’m not talking the bare-minimum, I’m talking 100%, Blood Sweat and Tears, put everything into it, “Train hard, Win easy”. That concept goes for anything in life, even getting out of bed or working your hardest to finish the race first.

Even though it may be a struggle or you feel like giving up, just remember why you started, was it worth investing all that time just to give up? No one can take your success away from you.
