If you know me well, you'll know my habits leading up to something big. I'm very good at planning and organising (hence Event Manager!), but I do get nervous and stressed on the final run up to an event, a big swim, a dinner that I'm hosting... I start to lose focus and doubt myself. My body tenses and this has a knock on impact with my health. I am incredibly lucky with this particular challenge to have THE Steve Hopkins by my side who has been a tremendous support in reminding me to relax and trust myself!
So my focus over the next 9 days is...keeping the focus!! I've taken a day off work tomorrow to enjoy myself. I'm not training in the morning so I can have a sleep in! I've then booked a facial and hair appointment and I have a date with my gorgeous boyfriend in the evening. It's going to be a opportunity for my mind & body to rest. I have to trust myself that I can done all the preparation required and I am able to achieve this. There's nothing else to worry about!
Keeping the focus!
