I heard about this a while ago, essentially is increases the amount of oxygen in your blood - obviously increasing athletic performance. I have personally been experimenting with it during the run up to the British finals and can honeslty say that I notice when I don't take it. It also turns out that it's an effective cancer treatment http://www.naturalnews.com/028409_cordyceps_cancer.html
So it's the last week before the British championships, I've had a great deal to overcome, a chest infection and the ensuing antibiotics while keeping the cardio levels up to 4 hours a day and consistently bringing my carbohydrates down each day. It's been hard but I think I am on track now. Just a few more days of overtraining and hard core diet and I will be eating my porridge watching films in the hotel :)
Thanks to all my supporters, freidns, family and fans for the encouragement along the way, without your motivation this journey would have been impossible. Special thanks to Sean and Helen from Panthers gym who are very patient with me, increasingly so the closer to show time. To my partner Natasha who has been very tolerant of my moods! To all my friends and family to whom I owe some real time once this season is out of the way.
Now on to the big stage on the 20th, an exiting time, I never imagined i'd make it this far... Let's see what's next...
