So for all of you who wished me luck for the interview, thank you. I didn’t get the job but I will hopefully be doing some volunteer work for them which will enable me to start getting the qualifications I need plus give me the experience they thought I was missing in the interview. Apparently it was very close between me and another candidate but the other candidate pipped me to the post with community experience which I don’t have. Luckily I have a lot of other stuff going on in the background so as much as I would have liked this job I can at least say I now have more time to do X instead.
TOMORROW IS THE COMPETITION. I thought I would be more nervous than I am, maybe because it’s my first competition I know it will all be a PB so no point being nervous. There is only one event I am actually worried about and that is the 65kg farmers walk. Picking 65kg up is a struggle for me, I am hoping with the help of magic chalk, belt and PMA I will be fine.
Erm there really isn’t much more to say, usually the plan would be to eat well and get a good nights sleep but I have had a dodgy tummy (nerves?) for the last few days and I have 2 young children so I never get a good nights sleep (yeah worlds tiniest violin). Unfortunately for this competition I will have no home support as we couldn’t find childcare but I do know a couple of the other girls watching/competing and I know the atmosphere will be supportive and friendly.
All I can do now is smash it :)
