June 2014

My training routine goes on as I made the trusty weekend journeys to Bisley this month. And of course during the week as well at Budleigh Farm, Moretonhampstead and Okehampton with my air pistol. Not only is technical shooting training needed, but also my physical fitness is very important to me. I've recently had new insoles to my running trainers and shooting shoes which is really helping with my posture. If you're trying to be precise, it helps if you can stand still!

Getting out on my bike, running and riding my horse as well as gym work is so enjoyable, especially with the summer upon us. Dartmoor is just a beautiful place to have as my playground. It was great to be on the Dartmoor National Park stand on the Friday of Devon County Show, as their Ambassador. We were inundated with people of all ages chatting to us about all the great places to visit on the moor and ways you can be active and enjoy the landscape. I managed to get out of horrendously boggy Devon County car park, being pulled by a tractor! First time for everything! June last year was when we made the film "A Dartmoor Adventure," what a fantastic few days that was. This June has training camps, competitions and further days in schools delivering Support & Mentoring Sessions. It's all go!
