DONT WATCH if youโ€™re squeamish ๐Ÿ˜‚ my mum cried ๐Ÿ˜ฉโฃ๏ธ What it sounds like to snap your Achillesโ€™ tendon on the landing ๐Ÿ’ฉ it just felt so bizzare at first then the pain came! ๐Ÿ’ฉ . My 3rd run having so much fun - I sent the Long Jump (first jump you see) & jumped furthest out of the Women! Yeeeaawww ๐Ÿค˜ then 30 seconds later Cased the finish jump & that was my season OVER!! From long jump to short jump ๐Ÿ˜‚ . . I didnโ€™t know weather to post this as itโ€™s quite emotional & a bit grim,but Iโ€™m posting it now! Thanks to John for helping me out xx @gopro@goprouk#gopro#goproathlete#achillesrupture

About Today: it was INSANE!!!!!!!! . Crazy racing all the girls pushing so hard, Tracey sent it so fast but crashed right st the finish :-( Nina crashed & lost a show!! Marine sent it so fast! Emi sent it... Vero sent it... Eleonora sent it...!! . . The track was so insanely hard deep in dust & blown up with big holes & just savage, I knew after I qualified 3rd I would have to dig deep .... pushing to the edge of the limit but not over that limit.... I was changing stuff EVERY practice run, trying all sorts to get comfortable on such a wild track, race day 2 practice runs still changing settings & rebound making a huge difference in the heat... & even dropping my forks thru by 3mm more - huge improvement! Last practice run I suddenly had the answer... my brake levers were not in the right position and I couldnโ€™t ride very aggressively with my arms..... well that change made a huge difference! (Try it and see!) Even after so long racing I still canโ€™t get my brake levers in the right position ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ So big thank you to @marekufnal@cordijortes for putting up with my mental shite every run & @tomlloyd123@athertonracing for mopping up my puke cos I was so nervous I puke a lot ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Ant from @dyfibikepark@Dyfi_diggers with the gnar horns @porosa@millejohnset dinner date!

Felt amazing to be back riding The Beast today!! ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ’š . Lots more testing on the new bikes & pushing the clock โฐ & my limits to find those seconds & milliseconds - felt so exciting to be doing that again today as ive had to miss the last few weeks since Leogang as it turns out my hurt hand has some pretty squashed metacarpals ring & little finger, & a fracture in there too!! (White arrow) ๐ŸŽฏ . It is feeling a lot lot better tho & I can strap it up & ride hard without much pain so itโ€™s all good!! . ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ”ง Racing is gnarly on Bike & Body & both need looking after!

I wanted to give this some context - for the last few days I have been in such a stressed out mood - exhausted & wanting to cry all the time, too tired to train, too tired to do anything normal, unable to ride as my hand is painful, and generally stressed out by the smallest of things: today I made myself get out and do something fun, to get outside, & get outside of my head & that would give me a bit of an adrenaline kick but also be relaxing!! . . we paddle boarded with the dog across to the sand banks and We @ollydavey ran around yelling & waded the estuary, then paddled down for food in the pub - it made me feel alive again! Then I went Home & got an early night & for once didnโ€™t worry about feeling like I had to stay & watch an epic sunset & fit everything into the day , because that wouldโ€™ve made me too tired! . I guess what Iโ€™m trying to say is that A) instagram makes everything look epic and you donโ€™t know the backstory so donโ€™t think everyone elseโ€™s life is better than yours! B) Get OUTSIDE & MOVE !! Fresh air, sunshine, rain, exercise ๐Ÿ‘whatever it is just go outside & move your body for a bit , it lights our natural energy โ™ฅ๏ธโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ’ช C) eat CARBS! Feel good ๐Ÿ˜‹ D) listen to your body . . Mental health is just as important as physical health & we all feel those super low moments, itโ€™s about recognising your triggers & having a few tools to bring you back to normal again & being honest with yourself .
