If you’ve been lacking in motivation lately, and you keep starting over again, then maybe try focusing on how you feel instead of how you look.
I’ve created my own range of adidas footwear, inspired by the city of London. How crazy is that!!
During the Q&A Jess talked about how she’d prepared for the Olympic games in London and in Rio, which of the heptathlon events she enjoyed the most (100m hurdles) and how her life has changed since retirement.
I truly believe that it is never too late to start a brand new chapter of your life. I’m turning thirty later this year and I have huge ambitions of the future. I honestly feel like I’m just getting started! Maybe it’s taken me until now to really figure out what I want to do, how I want to live my life and who I really am. That might sound a little bit lame but bare with me okay… I guess what I mean is that I have a very clear idea now of what I want both personally and professionally, and I’m ready to work mega hard for it. So work wise, I would say I’ve had two careers and endless side hustle jobs. Job number one ; Dancer. When I was nineteen, I graduated from dance college and I was a professional dancer for three years. Before getting a dance job in a musical, I worked in a restaurant, a clothes shop, and I also did a few commercial modelling gigs too. Whilst …
This week I’ve been doing a fifteen minute talk on instagram live each morning at 6.45am. It’s something I’ve wanted to do it for a while because I thought it would be a cool way to share my ideas about self motivation as well as answering questions and having more of a two way chat. Why so early? Personally, I get up early to ensure that I get as much out of the day as I can. If you’re up and getting ready for work/ uni etc, then you can grab your morning coffee and listen at the same time. Maybe you’re not even up but you can watching from the comfort of your duvet. It’s crazy that some people have been watching from the other side of the world! This week we’ve had ‘Hello’s from Dubai, LA and Australia! Let’s spread this positive energy like Nutella on a pancake! 🙂 Let’s talk … Here a little bit of what we’ve talked about so far this week. DAY 1 HABITS – We create habits for …
This week I learnt more about the partnership between adidas and Parley. Together, they are working to transform marine plastic pollution into high performance activewear.
I’d be lying if I said that I enjoyed every minute of it but it is life experience that I will never forget. We never really know what we’re capable of until we try.
It was amazing to see over a hundred women coming together to kick start their day with a mega tough workout. It was a celebration of sweat, strength and empowerment!
I’m letting go of any pressure and letting go of my ego. I believe that anyone who is willing to take on a marathon is incredibly brave and I’ll be proud to cross the finish line, even if it takes me all day!
In just four weeks time, I’ll be lacing up and heading to the start line of the London marathon. This is going to be a huge challenge for me, for so many reasons. I’ve been road running for the last three years, however, I’ve always enjoyed running shorter speedy races. I’ve completed lots of 5K and 10K races but prior to taking on this epic challenge the longest run I’d ever completed was 10 miles. I was offered a place in this years London marathon by the fab team at adidas uk. I’d never even considered running a marathon before, but I said yes without a second thought! (I was later filled with fear as I considered the reality of not only the marathon itself, but also the four month training process.) I began training in January and so far it’s been going really well. It is definitely a bigger commitment than I first expected. It’s not just the time that you need to spend running but also the self care that supports your training. …
