This month I have been really getting back into training and started to get into threshold and aerobic sets and training hard and every week we have been doing 2×50 max and timed and every time I’ve been improving which is really good and I’ve found out if there is no lockdown there will be winter Nationals happening in January instead of December which would be really good and I’ll be training really hard for!
This month I have finally gone back to training and I’ve never felt so amazing to get back and get a feel for the water again and I can’t wait until the new session starts so I can train as hard as I can until trials
This month I have gone away and have been training in the ocean for the past couple of days, we have also heard the news that pools reopen on the 25th which is really good!,so I will be able to start training and prepping for the new seasons,I am not to sure if all competition this year are cancelled for example winter nationals at the end of the year but just in case I will train like there is a competition anyway so I can put on a good performance.

This month I went on a 4 day Swimming camp at the Manchester npc learning new skills to develop for the perfect race day and learning about nutrition and antidoping for our lifestyles before entering the water which I really enjoyed I was also apart of a university study to see what would possibly work for the new classification system and to make it more sciencey like one of the tests on land where to see using a newton meter measure the strength on limbs and another was to see how our coordination skills were, using like tables using 1 finger tapping each one to the other see how fast we could tap it in 15 secs.
This month I competed in the county championships and I did 4 events swimming 100m backstroke,100m freestyle, 50m butterfly and 50m freestyle coming away with 4/4 golds ,I got 3/4 pb's and getting a pb on my backstroke which is now 3 seconds off the Paralympic consideration time and my butterfly which is 2.5 seconds off the Paralympic consideration time which is really good for when I compete in April at the Paralympic trials.

This month has been successful in some ways and ok in others basically I have recently done my first competition of the season where I only swam the 100m backstroke and got a pb which I've been trying to get for months which is extremely good for the start of season because it will push me to go even faster next time I race bearing in mined I'm only 3 seconds away from the Paralympic consideration time for team go which is extremely exciting I am now currently training for nationals which I'm really looking forward to because this is the competition that I do extremely well at I have also been selected for a national youth program on swim England which is the one before the world class program which is the one that I'm hoping to be on!

This month I competed in the British summer championships in Glasgow and I swam the 100m backstroke but unfortunately I didn't do to well because I felt under pressure and tired before my race and I did a disappointing time but I am going to take it as a learning curve and take it as an opportunity to work on the things that I did wrong and put it behind me next week I will be competing in the summer nationals in Sheffield doing my other events and hopefully turn it around there.
This month not a lot has happened in terms of competition because I have been focusing on my main event the 100m backstroke in Glasgow I am hoping to get on the 1:20.00 so I can hopefully get into a final and also the next week I am competing at the summer Championships in Sheffield competing in five Events unfortunately I cannot compete in 100 meter backstroke because British swimming haven't said that you cannot do the event from the British Champs in the summer champs apart from this I am training extremely hard and I will hope to do really good.

This mouth not a lot has happened, I am currently training for the para-swimming international meet in Glasgow at the end of April this year I am fortunate enough to qualify for all of my 6 events that I do and I am aiming to get the national junior champion I am going to do this by training hard, support towards the international meet and to get into finals in the meet which is looking positive at the moment. How you get the award is the most para junior swimmer with the most amount of points over the week of compation will claim the trophy and I am very excited to race and hopefully bring back home what I want!
This month has been amazing, I have accomplished something that only the committee form Leicestershire and rutland can vote for I was awarded the male swimmer of the year which I was extremely proud of not just that I was the first disabled male athlete to claim the awarded/trophy in Leicestershire and rutland this has boosted my confidence to try my best in everything to do with swimming especially the junior nationals in Liverpool I have next week where im competing in 6 events and I am look forward to what I can achieve.
This month I have been in 2 competitions, the disability winter Midlands and the county's in the disability winter Midlands. I did really bad because I had my reclassification which I was really happy about because I was the same class as before which was positive but then I had a 2 hour training session with the England program and 30 minutes after that I had the midland competition. In my 6 events that I had I didn't sussed in any of them because of how tired I was but pulled it back with 2 silvers and a gold. Then I competed in the county championship and so far I have done really well out of the 4/6 events that I have completed with 3/4 pb's. I was impressed with the hard work that has paid off I am now training hard for the para jr nationals in March.
This month I've competed in the para winter nationals it went extremely well with smashing my qualifying times with 6/6 pb's in all my events and 5/6 golds making me the s7 national champion in the 14/16 category this will be a big step for competition going into new year!!
in the last month I have competed in the London schools gala at the London aquatics center at the London Olympic park representing East Midlands in 2 relays. Our team tried there hardest and we came out 3rd over all in the first event but unfortunately we came forth in our category. I have been training really hard for the last 2 weeks in prep for the winter nationals. I am doing my 6 main events hoping that I come back with loads of achievements in prep for 2019 to qualify for the British swimming summer champs in Glasgow and do extremely well there. At the LRS awards evening it was tough because the people that I was up against were really good at there individual sports and unfortunately I came runner up but was extremely proud for even being nominated.
It has been a slow couple of weeks getting back into training but I'm gradually getting fitter and fitter to where I was before the season ended. Two weeks ago I competed in my first ever 200m backstroke race; I got a 2:58.00 which ranks me 2nd fastest S7 in the country which I was so pleased about! As it was my first 200m backstroke there is obviously room for improvement. I have got the London regionals in the next couple of weeks then I'm going to London again to swim at the London schools which I'm looking forward to. Then I'm heading to Manchester to compete in the nationals which I for some reason do the best at! I am working really hard to be where I want to be and I am looking forward to the future.
The CP World Games 2018 was amazing. All my hard work in training paid off with 5 events, 4 medals and 4 pb's. I can say that I'm proud of myself and did my coach and supporters proud thoughout the competition in World Games. I can honestly say I probably had the hardest competition out of everyone at the world with the situations that happened to me. I got a silver in my 200IM, a silver in my 100m backstroke, a silver in my 100m freestyle and a bronze in my 50m freestyle. Unfortunately I missed out on the 50m butterfly because there were only 2 people in my class and they could only award the gold medal and the person who beat me beat me by a second but it was such a good competition and I hope to come back in the following years.
