Kelda writes- Time to put my money where my mouth is!

Next Saturday, the 4thJuly, it’s the selection regatta for the World Championships. We’ve been talking about it for so long, it seems madness that it’s actually here! The reality is that I have to finish in the first 2 boats in my category if I’m to be selected. There’s no excuses, nothing to hide behind….either I’ll be good enough, or I won’t!

I’m determined it’s going to be the former!…..However, I’m well aware that there’s no guarantees! I’ve been training hard and things have been going well. I got a new PB this week, and for the first time ever I’ve actually managed to do pull ups in the gym without an assistance band! Now that’s got to be a good sign!!:-) I’ve been feeling really powerful on the water too, there’s still a lot more to come, which I find a really exciting prospect, but in the meantime the priority is delivering next weekend!

One of my good friends gave me a card this week in which she’d written “You were born to do this”…..and that’s just how I feel! So, it’s time to put my money where my mouth is and prove exactly that to myself, my coach, and all the amazing people who have given me so much support.

I’m a little bit scared, but I reckon that’s a good thing, because it proves to me just how much I want this and just how determined I am to make it happen!

If you never take the risk, you’ll never know how far you can go!!
