Lockdown training

9th Feb, 2021

I just want to start by saying, everything within lockdown has been tough. Training online with coaches still trying to make me the best I can be by running, muscle building, stamina, mobility and the list goes on. They're has been goals set for when we do return to court but until then the focus is muscle building and being ready to take part in the national championships when we return in June. There is not much I can say apart from what has the world come to! I am still thriving to be the best I can and I hope to return to the badminton court sooner rather than later. Once again thank you for the funding and I hope to carry on my career with your support. Thank you again!

2nd Lockdown

2nd Dec, 2020

Another month, another blog and still Training!

Before 2nd lockdown I had a good tough hard working training block with the PC and the University Elite squad but my feet deffinately took the brunt end of it and I ended up with huge blisters and when 2nd lockdown came they needed a rest! so I had nearly 2 weeks off before back to home training. Late November it was released that the English Nationals from this year would be played in early January so now lockdown has lifted and I can get back on court I have to work hard to be ready in January.

Huge Thank you for your support

College & Training

23rd Sep, 2020

Well, Throughout lockdown I have had a tough time training and keeping on top of things but recently I have passed my GCSE's to a good level which means I got on the course I wanted at Loughborough College and I have been provided with training at Loughborough University with the Elite squad. I have been training Physically and mentally throughout these times. I am staring to settle in at college and training, meeting new people and training with Elite athletes has helped me to thrive to be the best I can. Thank you again for all the funding and Thanks to the people in my life for their continued support.

Close but not close enough!

20th Jul, 2020

So I am still working hard on my training at home working on important specific areas but with the opening of leisure centres very soon you would think i would be getting excited but unfortunately still no Badminton courts available as yet due to sports hall being used for gym equipment and classes in the first phase so I must wait a little longer till i can hit the courts, hopefully not that much longer it's killing me :)

Training in lockdown

26th May, 2020

Well, what can I say?

Definitely not the best of situations for all high level athletes, anyway, this how I have been coping with training from home!

Within the first weeks of being of as-well as still working hard with school, I have been doing many things, a few examples are multi-feeds in my garden and on my drive, practising my movement, runs, sprints, circuit training also making use of things such as baked bean tins and little kettlebells to keep my wrist strength up as when I go back to playing badminton all my muscles will be ready, it has been hard don't get me wrong but it gives me and many other athletes a chance maybe to concentrate on specific areas of their game which are the weakest.

This is just a small blog on how I have coped with the self-isolation.

STAY SAFE!
