Sally ready to chuck it in

LONDON gold-medal favourite Sally Pearson reckons she's about to embark on the toughest month of training ahead of the countdown to the Olympics.

So bad will December be on the training track that hurdle ace Pearson described it as "vomit material".

Pearson, the current world champion in the 100m hurdles - and the 2011 world female athlete of the year - even began to feel queasy as she rattled off a typical training week to this column during an adidas photo shoot.

"I've been running longer distances, doing longer reps, it's vomit material. I haven't vomited yet, but you can still feel it in your head and stomach. It hurts, but that's what training is all about," Pearson said.

"Saturday is the day I get absolutely pounded with an endurance run. Last week I did four 400ms. I run a 400m, walk about 100m over to a grass hill and run up that hill three times. I then walk back and do it all over again."

The Olympic Silver in Beijing and Commonwealth Gold in Delhi will head to Adelaide at the end of January for the first competition.
