Got a great email last night. All the squad details of what’s expected of me, training wise, diet, drugs (!), social media presence…really exciting, but also really daunting because I can see how serious this is now.
My Mum has logged onto the ‘drugs’ website to check out my antihistamines and asthma puffers. The stuff I take for my stomach is okay, and the antihistamines are fine too. There’s a yellow warning on my Ventolin so we’ll head off to the doctors to make sure we really understand what dose is allowable. Oh the joys of asthma.
The big surprise was that there was some sponsorship money attached to making the squad. I’m so grateful for the help – every set costs £29 so it soon adds up. First steps to raising the money I need for my training expenses so its been a great day!
