British Summer Championships

So pleased for Lawrence today – not winning bronze – but achieving two 1.01 again in 100 breast at British summers. After a popped rib and back spasm in March and not being able to compete in Marseille but then having to compete at British Champs way below where he should have been, (in pain to rank qualifying times for these Championships) then, to compete in Barcelona Paris and Rome to try and regain lost race pace training below par, and where we would have liked him to be at this time, the frustration, feeling low but behind the scenes the sheer determination to pull something back from the last 7 months and a smile from both of us today to swim those times again to persevere, paid off.

Sense of satisfaction now and hopefully for me, dare l now say, in my own little bubble world, try to now get over the chaos and hardships of the last 7 months, with so many new beginnings around me now.
