Yep its been more than a minute since my last blog.
My 2011 season has ended and I ponder my next moves. Coach has given me a month off and then I am due to start back. I'm pushing for October so I can get my ducks in a row. The 2012 OGames circus when it rolls around is gonna be hectic to say the least. So maybe this premature end to the season is a blessing for my body.
I'm spending time with my family. As nephew number 1 in on summer break. So its death by children's tv, milkshakes and all the things 6 year old boys know they shouldn't be doing.
Now to the title of this blog. Well in terms of track this summer was hmmmmm interesting. For the 1st time ever I think I allowed outside forces and people to get in my head. Yep they won. I gave a good fight now. Its made me question myself, peoples motives and myself again. A healthy angry Joice is so not what they want going into the 2012 season. But hey that's what you got. Cause last time I checked. Karma is a bitch and she don't know when to stop.
So I didn't make the World Champs team. Hmmm been there before in 2005 and what a fab season I had in 2006. Thing is how many people on this Worlds team wont make the team next year? Damn I'm not the only person sitting at home from team GB. Life goes on.
Track allows us to dust ourselves off and come back again. Hard work is hard work is hard work.
Its the randoms that have tried to worm their way into my life this summer that has prompted this blog. What is it they see in me that makes them what to pry into my life. Facebook requests, Linkedin requests from people I have never meet. Kinda defeats the purpose of the site if you ask me. I thought Linkedin was a little cleaner than Facebook. (I guess not) shrug.
Yesterday was a classic. A guy claiming to be a serial networker with 500 people on his list contacted me. In my head I'm thinking sponsor or he knows someone who can. Yeah right and pigs might fly. He told me he doesn't know anyone who can help. Well Sir, maybe you should forget networking and collect beer mats cause you suck at networking.
On a real note the OGames is around the corner and come September (October if I have my way) I have to get my head down and train like my life depends on it.
No word of a lie I need sponsors I have not been funded by my governing body since 2008. All serious sponsors are welcome and needed.
But if your looking to peer in the window and merely watch what I am up to. Please don't bother me I have work to do. Like the title of this blog says. 'Aint nothing to see here darling'
I'm really just trying to achieve my own personal goals in an Olympic Games in my home town. Now how many people in their lifetime can experience that?
I'm looking for 'Team Joice' not sightseers. So who's with me?
Seats on the bus are limited.
