Hi, I'm Huw, a member of the British Handball Association's World Class Development Programme based in Arhus, Denmark.
You can follow my progress on 606 over the coming months (and hopefully years) as I try to make the squad for London 2012...
Well, it's the end of another week of training, which now takes us to about three quarters of the way through this season here in Denmark, and I feel that although I have made much progress since last August, I constantly feel like there is still so much more that needs to be done...and done quickly, if we are to be successful at London 2012.
The return after Christmas started with a high intensity GB training camp - just what you need after a Christmas break! It was an okay camp for me personally, but as usual I felt that I could have done better.
Since then, I have moved clubs and joined up with fellow GB team mates Ciaran Williams, Johnnie McAleer, and Sebastian Prieto, playing at TMS HK.
The club scene has been pretty frustrating for me. Clubs understandably see players for where they are now and not for what potential that they may have. Therefore, given that I've come from a different sport, I'm pretty low on the pecking order, and so getting game time is often difficult.
The language barrier also presents problems and sometimes I feel that I present too much of a risk to coaches. This is something I need to overcome and hopefully just take any opportunities that may arise.
In fact, on that note, this weekend saw me play another game for the club's second team. A lowly division it may be but it is giving me invaluable court time nonetheless. I managed to get on the scoresheet and also felt good about my all round performance in attack and defence.
Hopefully this will be a another step towards getting me where I want (and need) to be, which is moving up the leagues and playing at higher and higher levels.
In the immediate future, there is the weekly business of training at the Idraetshojskolen Arhus Handball Academy to look forward to.
However, in a few weeks' time, there is another GB training camp, with head coach Carsten Albrektsen. All players are eyeing that up as an opportunity to impress once again, and I guess I am no different.
These camps are always good and extremely beneficial - just the intensity and standard of training we need. It'll be a hard few days but I'm looking to come out the other side with a sense of improvement and with new targets to try and reach.
I will update you during that camp, to let you know how it's going...
