About 18 months ago I started to get fit again.
But its surprising how quickly the bug catches you, I started with a pretty basic routine 3 days per week but after a couple of months I already found myself trainign 5 to 6 times a week and enjoying it.
About 6 months ago I decided I'd put all that training to use, and I started to focus in on a specific event. I never did any throwing events before.
So I thought the shot put would be the easiest to learn. Could I be more wrong. For an event that looks very simple on TV, its a lot more complex. But its good to learn something new.
Anyway first competition tomorrow.
The Leevale Games 2012
The European Junior 1500m silver-medallist Ciara Mageean will be taking part and I can't wait to see that race.
Hope it all goes well. It will be strange putting on the old track gear again.
