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.

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!]

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!

With over 30 hours of training under my belt after our first week in Mallorca, our second week saw us transfer from Alcudia to Santa Maria for the second part of the camp and this gave a slightly different angle for training rides. With my Time Trial bike arriving on the team van, I headed out for several sessions getting back into the TT groove ahead of my first race, and For VioRed racing debut, on Sunday 1st April.

It has been a while since I blogged anything so I thought it was time to get typing!

A brief rest from training after the success of the Track Worlds saw me busy as a labourer for my Builder extraordinaire husband who has been masterminding the extension on our home and has needed someone with the patience required to cut and hold plasterboard while he works out where to attach it to the studwork and batons! I also spent some time in London with Links of London working on some media related promotion of the latest items to hit their London 2012 range and a photo shoot for the Guardian alongside team mate Jon-Allan Butterworth, this should appear in May. A quick trip to Edinburgh to see Scottish Widows was also fitted in and a chance to speak at an Intermediary Sales conference. It was fun to do so many different things in a short space of time, but for the past couple of weeks it has been all about getting back into training and hitting the roads for a block of long miles.

It has been a couple of months since my last blog and that has largely been down to the fact everything has been full on with training and the preparation for the Track World Championships being held in Los Angeles from 8-12th February. Sarah and I are also having some work done on our house and since my previous working life was in the building industry, I have been leading the project which has been brilliant to get my brain active in the area I used to work in everyday prior to becoming a full time cyclist.

After returning from gold at the Columbia World Cup and the change of direction for me with my training and racing after the Team Pursuit was removed from my schedule, it was time to make a quick and decisive change to the plan that would lead me into the Para-Cycling World Championships in February 2012.

Post Road Worlds was a heady mix of chill out time, some work with some of the Olympic and Paralympic sponsors as well as that all important first chance to ride the London Velodrome.
