My time in Japan was cut short unexpectedly by the earthquake which hit on Friday 11 March. Although we were not in a seriously affected area, it was a very scary experience. We were in the gym on Friday afternoon when we felt at least two earthquakes. The following morning we changed our flights to fly back to Australia on the following Monday in anticipation of the chaos that ensued after the earthquake and tsunami caused so much damage. Obviously, all training was cancelled.
I am really pleased to be safe and sound back in Australia now, but my thoughts are with those people still in Japan. It really is terrible.
