In my last blog I said that I wanted a memorable Olympic Games. Well it certainly was memorable but unfortunately not necessarily for the reasons that I wished for!
Three weeks before the Olympics I threw a personal best and British record of 66.17m in the wind and rain at Crystal Palace. I had the best first three rounds of my life. However, in a latter round of the competition I partially tore an elbow ligament. Going into an MRI scanner on your 30th birthday (2 days after the competition), not knowing if you’re going to be able to compete in a home Olympics when you are in the shape of your life is not an experience I would recommend! I was thankfully given the all-clear to compete. My physio did a superb job to get me back to full fitness.
The only issue was that I had not thrown maximally in that time as I had to save the hardest efforts for inside the stadium. Unfortunately on my last warm up throw inside the stadium my elbow ligament fully ruptured making me unable to feel my hand. I tried to throw but the lack of feeling made it impossible. After the third round, the pain hit me.
I have never believed in luck until this experience. For whatever reason, I was not meant to be successful in London. I’m sure in years to come I will figure out why. However, my desire is still as strong as ever and at 30 I am still improving so all I can think of is that a medal in Rio will be that much sweeter.
I have since had an operation to reattach the ligament and I am back training moderately on the rest of my body. I have what can only be described as a Forrest Gump style brace on my right arm. When that comes off in a month or so’s time, the road to Rio 2016 starts. Success does have a destination but you have to enjoy the process. I do and that’s what matters most.

Hi I am Julie from Denmark (Fitness education)
In the first place, I was looking for taking the Fitness education in Denmark, but with my assessor, Liams, help I realised that the education, The Training Room, offered me, Was much better for me. Liam was very helpful and responded quickly. When I paid for the course I got my fantastic Tutor, Claire. She is very helpful and is very good at explaining the subjects if I don't understand the meaning of it. When I have a question she responds very quickly. She is a great tutor and I would 100% recommend her for you guys, if you are looking for taking the course. I would totally recommend The Training Room. Wonderful service and employees.
Thanks for all your help and support. It has been a fantastic journey so far and I will look forward to much more!

Very good .
Very good and easy
Overall the system is fairly good. The live lab is great but (understandably) a little restrictive. The hands on aspect of it made me feel i was learning how to solve real world problems. The only thing that would be better is a bit more tutor feedback on what you have done so far periodically and just check in to see what they are struggling with or curious about.
They are very helpful and cooperative .
