Three days ago I was wearing short sleeves... Currently wearing three thermals, a long sleeve cag and pogies (paddling gloves) 😂 the water is icy, and that first splash to the face is enough to curb the jetlag and shock you into focus. we are sooo spoilt with the weather in Australia! Spain is freezing 🥶 and it’s meant to snow on Thursday buuuut I’m so happy to be back in La Seu and training here☺️. 📷 @aidanwilliamsphoto
Time to fly! ✈️ excited to head to Spain for a training camp ✌🏽
So honoured to win the 2018 Sportswoman of the Year at the World Paddle Awards 🥰✨ Thank you so much to the @worldpaddleawards academy and all who voted ! Well done to the other finalists and award winners! Looking forward to 2019 🌟😘
Puppy cuddles with my bestie made for a great end to the weekend. #puppies#moodles
Ah Sydney, you beauty ❤️ it was nice to see the ☀️ sun again momentarily after a week of rain 😂 being outside, in the sunshine just lifts my mood! But it looks like we have another week of storms & rain coming 🤷🏽♀️ #howdothebritishdoit
This ankle hook contraption kinda terrifies me #trustissues hence the slow descent and constant checks to see if my feet were still holding on 😂 buuut it’s an amazing stretch. I’ve had some back niggles lately and this and some Swiss ball stretches help lengthen the spine. I’ll work up to doing some upside down sit ups eventually!
Focussed and fierce with 500 days till #tokyo2020 😍😱 Putting in the grunt work - This ain’t always pretty 😂
Celebrating the ladies #iwd19 🥰 Happy International Women’s Day. Keep dreaming big and working hard.
I feel fortunate to have had some wonderful female role models. Yesterday, I spoke at the Women of the Year awards and got me thinking about the ladies I’m grateful for.
Here’s one strong woman who greatly inspires me! Mamie (French for nana) taught us so much about hard work and passion - she practically raised her 7 siblings, was a single mum at one stage who worked hard to build a career as a nurse and have her own practice, she worked until she was 78 .. SEVENTY EIGHT !!!!! Because she loved it, and because she could ! She values education so much, a privilege for her to have studied... she’s now 83 and hanging out with us in Aus, and all by herself, she signed up to an online course to study and learn Hebrew, how bloody cool is she. Age is no limit and learning is for life. I aspire to have her energy and her passion, her selflessness and generosity to everyone, and her cooking skills... this will be the hardest because I swear she purposefully doesn’t give me all the steps or ingredients so it never tastes as good as hers. 😂 .
If you read this far, who’s a woman who you’re grateful for and who has inspired you? .
☀️sometimes training involves repetition repetition repetition... I have done this upstream gate a thousand times, but every time is a little bit different. The goal is consistency! #canoeslalom#training#gopro
