Olivia Breen: Headed for sunnier climes to train and get over a persistent cold

Happy New Year to you all! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and managed to stay dry through all that rain!

My Christmas was great and it was lovely to be with my family again. However, like so many people I was ill with a really bad cough and cold so I was unable to do all the training I had planned.

I couldn't shake the cold so my coach suggested that I come to Tenerife and feel the sunshine again.

So that is what my mum and I did and we have had an amazing time. It has been great to feel the warmth of the sun and I have been able to do some gentle training at the track here.

I feel so much better for a few days sunshine and warmth and it is all thanks to the Sky Academy Sports Scholarship.

I now feel ready to come back to some intense training in readiness for the indoor season but I will be really sad to leave the sun!
