2012 is flying by! Reminiscing with my roommate Geraint Thomas it seemed like yesterday we were preparing for the Olympic test event in February. We finished in second place behind the Australians in the team pursuit. It wasn't the result we were hoping for but we made up for it in Melbourne just a few weeks later in March at the world championships. Melbourne was a great trip, it was brilliant to pick up another track world title but I'll remember the city and the good times had with teammates outside of racing with the fondest memories.
I can barely believe that (all going to plan) in just 5 weeks today I'll be competing in my final day of racing in London.
May and June was time for some road racing with my team Rapha-Condor-Sharp with a view of pushing on my aerobic power and trying to win a race or two on the way when possible. I always enjoy racing with my team, the tour series criteriums were great fun but also hard work with form slightly suppressed from on-going track training between the racing. Hopefully the hard road miles done in this block will give us the aerobic depth we need to move us forward come the Olympics.
A couple of weeks ago the final confirmation for the Olympic selection was announced. As I had hoped, I've been selected for Team Pursuit and the Omnium. To be honest, it's not something I'd given much thought to. I think I had been so focused on training hard for the Olympics that I forgot I had to get selected in the first place! Obviously I'm very proud to represent Team GB and can't wait to give my best in front of a home crowd.
Today is my rest day in Majorca; we are half way through a short road block before returning to the track again for the final push. The weather here has been good, a bit too good for my liking; at 36 degrees C riding up half hour long climbs isn't my favourite pastime. Sun cream and sweat dosn't mix well in my eyeballs! Just one more three day block here in Majorca then it's back to our English summer. Can't wait!
Next up is a short track camp back home in Manchester before moving into the holding camp in Newport, then finally on to the Village for the Olympic Games. I can barely believe that (all going to plan) in just 5 weeks today I'll be competing in my final day of racing in London. Like I said before, 2012 is flying by!

I found my experience friendly and helpful and easy to understand
Everyone who contacted me or I was in contact with was very friendly, helpful and informative. Very professional yet easy going.
Excellent service and help provided throughout, thanks a lot! Andy McGlashan (tutor) replied 99% of the time within a couple of hours to any questions and when providing feedback to me, top guy couldn't ask for more
The course was really helpful and it gave me the skills I need to become a Personal Trainer, I have now started work at Pure Gym in Warrington.
All of the admin staff were incredibly helpful and instrumental in my attendance and attainment of the course, and my tutor Tracey Lilburn at the Newcastle school was overwhelming supportive and absolutely the reason for my success.
I get very quickly answers to my questions.
Fast track course so it's intense but head down listen and you will be a happy pt
Course was really good
Very impressed with Jenna Coyle the tutor. Awesome tutor thanks
Would never of passed with out Jenna.
I thought the process was done very smoothly and professionally. I would say this is because of the training room staff being very quick and dedicated to their job and problem solving problems very efficiently.
great course with fantastic support from my tutor. the best part is that you do the work in your own time and not rushed by anyone.
