Lockdown: balancing self-compassion with maintaining perspective

In her first British Rowing blog, GB rower Beccy Muzerie shares how she has been processing the new normal in a turbulent few months.

2020 very quickly turned into the year no one could have predicted. As elite athletes, the rhythm of our existence beats in four-year cycles, gently rising and falling to finally reach the highest peak of an Olympic Games. So, when provisional selection, lockdown, Olympic postponement and confirmation of de-selection occurred within a four-day space against a four-year heartbeat of Tokyo 2020, it isn’t really surprising that some of us have taken a while to process the new normal we find ourselves living in.
