Learning From 2020

They say that ‘failing to prepare is preparing to fail’ but if the last year has taught us anything, it’s that no plan should be set in stone and we should pride ourselves on our adaptability.

Eilish compared her disappointment … Continue reading Lockdown Fun For Schools

World Championships Doha

We set off straight after my last race of 2018, in order to squeeze in … Continue reading Dream Safari

St Moritz

Every summer, I spend a few months at altitude preparing for the major Championships of that year. Previously we had always chosen Font Romeu in the French Pyrenees because it was the preference of British Athletics (both Mo Farah and Paula Radcliffe have apartments there).
