Welsh Indoor Athletics Championship

This weekend has been a busy one. On Saturday I performed sports massage at the Welsh Open Senior Indoor Championship and today I was at the Welsh Open U-20 and Closed U-17, U-15 and U-13 Championship. As I was the therapist providing pre and post event massage it certainly kept me busy enough, I massaged 25 ahtletes in total in two days which I think is pretty good going. I did enjoy it as I met a lot of lovely athletes. The guy in the picture underneath is from Edinburg and I think he felt like I was a bit horrible to his legs yesterday,but he came back again today for another massage after he won the gold medal so he was really pleased. Well done!

I look like a kid in comparison:)

 Over the last few weeks I have started working with some of the UWIC athletes during the week and today a lot of them were competing in various events. Some really good results, so it looks like the training they are putting in are starting to pay off, well done everyone! As this is now the third event I have done since I moved here I have been lucky to get picked for the Celtic Cup next Sunday which is an international event where UWIC, England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland will be competing. I will be one of the masseurs for the Welsh team, so that should be a really good experience. Looking forward to it!
  
Possibly putting on a brace face for the camera? :)

What happened to the smile here? :)
I think I will put my feet up now, have a cup of tea and watch some tv. Lovely!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend everyone!
