29th December 2012 to 4th January 2013
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year, may 2013 be a year that is filled with many precious memories, good health, happiness and achieving goals.
My 2012 ended by spending time with my Nana and Pop, they are now back home, but the time we were able to spend with them was precious and special.
Just like many places in Australia, the temperature in Canberra has risen to be extremely hot, today was a sweltering 36.8 degrees and it is predicted to be even hotter tomorrow and the high temperatures look like continuing until the end of next week.
I have found that hot weather can be just as harsh as the cold for me. Particularly yesterday, I was exceptionally sore, unable to move without pain, it was just dreadful and a little frightening. Because I was so sore and then felt terribly ill I was not able to throw at Interclub, so I was so very disappointed.
Nalani was able to throw last night, she did Javelin and Shotput, in Javelin she threw 15.40m and in Shotput she got 6.01m which were both personal bests this season for her. She throws a 600g javelin and a 4kg shotput, which are much heavier than what I throw.
Jarrett is running this coming week, he is competing in the Mile Championships. I am hoping I will be well enough to throw also as well as cheering Jarrett on.
Today I am not quite as bad but the pain and nausea is still making me ill, so this Blog is not very long.
Apart from having time with my Nana and Pop and not feeling well, we have been looking after a gorgeous little puppy, her name is Lily and she is a Blenheim Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, she has been so cute and playful and brought so much joy into our days. She went back home to her owners today and we were all just a little sad to see her go. Even Tinkerbelle had become fond of her, they often played together and Tinkerbelle watched over her like a Mum would.
It was a relief for me on Wednesday to have physiotherapy with Kaitlyn, she worked on my neck and spine doing gentle releasing, it felt wonderful and then those terrific heat packs at the end.
Have a splendiferous week, keep cool and keep smiling.
