So this time 12 months ago I had been given the all clear to resume training after a 12 week period of rehab following the birth of my daughter by Emergency C Section. It's funny to look back over the past 12 months and see all my anxieties about returning to racing gradually melt into what has turned into another superb year!

Tonight is a rare night that Louisa has fallen asleep before 9.30pm. Much like me and Barney, our daughter is a night owl and so lately, with all the racing and training, I have found myself going to bed when she does! Of course this means less time for things like updating a blog, so with this well overdue I will attempt to condense a very exciting few months.

The 2014 Para-Cycling Track World Championships were a much anticipated event as this would be the first time the world had reconvened for a major track international in 19 long months since the London Paralympic Games.

Since writing to you from my first Club La Santa training camp of the year the build up to the 2014 Track Worlds has been in full flow and there’s been plenty of activity to cram in, on and off the bike!

Winter Training!

Training Blog
My return to racing at the end of November last year was a welcome hit out on the boards of the Newport Velodrome. I was, like any new Mum, nervous I could produce a performance that would be respectable given I was balancing the demands of looking after a 5 month old baby and training. I needn’t have worried, the race went quite well and although I had hoped to ride faster [I think as an athlete that is a common theme!], I was able to post a time over the 3000m that would still have won me a gold medal at the London Games. [below: Louisa and I with my gold medal from my comeback race!]

Four months has passed since the birth of my daughter and there have been so many blogs to write in that time but so little time in which to actually sit down and even start one! Louisa was born by emergency caesarean section after becoming stuck and wrapped in her cord, so the plans to jump back on the bike after a few weeks were put on hold and my family joked that the only way they could slow me down was to do major abdominal surgery!

Over the past 8 months I have been gradually getting bigger and bigger, slower and slower, not exactly the words you would expect to hear from an elite athlete, except that of course I have an excuse, Baby Storey is hopefully going to make an appearance in the next month or so!

Training Blog
Returning to training after a major event is usually planned beforehand, but every four years after the Paralympic Games there is a little more leeway and anything up to 3 months out of formal training is acceptable provided you get back on the straight and narrow quickly enough!

As an athlete the period in the run up to and during the Games is the familiar part you operate in for so long. Living and breathing cycling, making sure that every base is covered, making sure that no stone is left unturned so that on race day there can be no doubts that all there is left to do is race to the very best you can.

It’s been quite a while since I managed to sit and write a blog and even now I am perched on the edge of a bed in my umpteenth hotel room since the Games ended! The journey has been incredible and so I thought I would wind the clock back a few weeks talk about the last bit of the build up, the Games themselves and then the post Games fun!

Two years ago the Tour of Limousin was my first stage race in women’s professional cycling and I lost 24 minutes in the first stage alone. It was a baptism of fire in the road stages, but I managed to salvage a decent result to finish 13th in the Individual Time Trial stage, but left the race thinking I would never have what it took to get through the challenging roads of the Limousin region.

Escentual For VioRed headed out for the Krasna Lipa tour in the north of Czech Republic with a slightly depleted squad due to illness and injury but with spirits high and legs ready to hit the roads of the race and see whether we could achieve a top ten overall and the odd podium spot on a couple of stages.

It may only have been a couple of weeks since my last blog but the racing has been packed in and the team announcement for London 2012 was finally made after what felt like an eternity of keeping it a secret! There was also time to fit in visits to 2 primary schools, a High School awards night as well as a visit to recce the Brands Hatch course being used for the Paralympic Road Races, see the London 2012 medals being handed over to The Tower of London for safe keeping and squeeze in two of my best performances in a road race!

Since the National Lottery Funded Programme for Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls was launched back in 1996, I have been fortunate to be supported by the Programme ever since. Of course in order to be eligible to receive funding there are strict performance targets that have to be met every year and in my case I have been in the top 2 in the world in at least one event, every year in order to have my membership of the programme continued.

The second Saturday of June has, in the last two years anyway, been the traditional date for me to start the John O Groats to Lands End route alongside 600 or so participants sponsored by Deloitte. This year however I was doing an epic journey of a different kind and hoping that my powers of recovery would stand me in good stead for a double header of racing in two of the best UK women’s races of the year.

South Africa has always been on my list of places I wanted to visit, so when the chance to ride Tour of the Freestate came up with Escentual For VioRed, I jumped at the chance to be on the team. Heading out for our team were also Elle Hopkins, Gaby Shaw and Claire Galloway, with Lauren Creamer and Ciara Horne joining EFV for the race. It was a strong squad but all relatively new to stage racing, this being only my 3rd tour.
