In preparation for any major event like a World Championship you have to be very well prepared both physically and mentally.
This can mean forking out a few extra pounds on a massage, a chiropractor or a few supplements that may be needed.
The final countdown to events needs a lot of care and thoughts.
Listen to your body and see if it's trying to tell you its in pain, tired or weak,
then visit a specialist in the field that is necessary and get cracking on sorting out
the more important smaller issues before they become bigger problems.
I visit Dr Thomas Gillen every week to 10 days to keep my little niggles at bay.
Without this I find the little pains become worse and I have to visit a physiotherapist or cryotherapy etc.
In preparation for a big competition I can advise you on your nutritional needs before the event which can help with performance results.
Also I can help with pre warm-up massage and exercise tips.
Thorough preparation makes its own luck.
It's better to look ahead and prepare than to look back and regret.

To be prepared against surprise is to be trained. To be prepared for surprise is to be educated.
Spectacular achievement is always preceded by spectacular preparation.

Here are some tips to start and keep you in an activity.
It is wonderful to meet with friends from all over the world through sport and competitions. Here I am at the Games in Italy in 2011 with my Russian friend who also competed in the 2000m steeplechase, that's what sport helps with, breaking down barriers even in language, we can still communicate enough through social media to be good friends.
