On Thursday the 8th of November Pt England School had our annual Athletics day. Getting ready for the day my legs start playing up and straight away I knew that it wasn't going away anytime soon. I was in Mrs Tele’as group and our first event was high jump. When we were lining up we had to line up on two sides.
I waited in the line to jump over the bar and then it quickly got to my turn. I ran up to the mat and leapt over with ease. Then as I lined up again the bar shot up high, and in my head I was thinking “aye that went up high straight away”. As I attempted to jump the bar a second time I luckily got over. But as I tried to do it again I failed with my last attempt following the same way.
Our 12.9+ team moved to the next event, the sprints. As we were told what to do we all lined up in a line with each boys and girls having two heats before the semi finals. “On your marks... set.... Bang!” was the last thing I heard as we sped off down the tracks. Running with a sore leg I looked to the left and was surprised to see that there were 2 people behind me. I finished the race and while limping off to the side I tried to not race again but I had to.
After that we did a couple more events. Before I knew it the day was over. In my head I was saying to myself “why did you run so much yesterday?” but even with sore legs I thought that the day was good and I still liked it.
