Well another year has come to an end and I managed to due four Qualifiers: Pwllheli and Weymouth in the spring and Lowesoft and Torbay in the Autumn.

The National rankings or Radial ladder is made up of your top four events, so counting 2,1,1,1 leaving me still ranked number one in the country which is a tremendously relief after having so long out of sailing due to injury.

I have now been in the gym for a month and I can feel the difference it is making. However it is putting increased stress on my body with the muscles down my left side (back, shoulder, tricep and forearm) tending to spasm (tighten up and not “let go”).

I am now doing the majority of my training at Weymouth in Future Physiques gym who sponsor me.

Whilst in Weymouth I having Physiotherapy treatment at the Nielson clinic, where my physio Tina has been fantastic working to get my muscles to relax!

Although it has been a far from pleasant experience with the pain levels increasing in waves an in my last treatment I actually went through agony into total numbness. However my focus is total on 2012 if that means I have a hard winter ahead of me getting my body in order then so be it!
