PB yesterday but we can still be better
Yesterday at the national championships felt awesome. It was brilliant for me and Tom to get a PB and a new British record but the best point is that there is still room for improvement.
I know I’m not at my best because I’ve had a lot of disruptions to my training from niggling injuries and yesterday I missed the end a little on the back 3 ½ and front 4 ½ too. Both of those dives went really well in training so there’s definitely potential for us to take things still further.
People often forget that Tom and I are a relatively new pairing and it’s natural that we’re getting better all the time as we become more comfortable as a team.
That said, we’ve already put down a few markers – with the World Series and the various medals we’ve picked up so we’ve shown we can compete with the very best.
However, we still haven’t done that much training together so I’m looking forward to heading off for our two-week training camp in Spain. Hopefully we’ll still be able to catch most of the football but there will be a lot of hard graft - mostly conditioning work to restore the power and fitness that you inevitably lose during competition season because you can’t get so much time in the gym.
The truth is that I love that kind of stuff, which many people a find little strange, but it’s great to be able to get stuck in. Only the flexibility exercises can get a bit boring, the rest is great fun.
Of course the last thing before we go away is the small matter of the individual Nationals which will be the last time I get to compete against Tom before the Games. The reality is it’s a bit of fun as we’ve both already qualified and it doesn’t really matter who wins. But I have to concede that the way Tom’s diving he’ll be the favourite. Let’s see what happens.
