Building the dream 🧚🏾‍♀️

Exhausted or sunbathing. You decide

I’m so happy to be working with @bulgari to mark International Women’s Day and the launch of the new Bvlgari Bvlgari pendant. They have pledged to gift 10% of the necklace’s first month’s proceeds for me to donate to a charity that I admire. ⠀ ⠀ It seemed pertinent to support those helping people who have experienced, and are experiencing, domestic abuse. For the past year home has meant to be the safest place for us but tragically it hasn’t been for all and still isn’t for so many.⠀ ⠀ I chose Southall Black Sisters; a not-for-profit organisation that provides a safe environment for people trapped in abusive relationships or at risk of violence. SBS have done amazing work for over four decades, both directly helping people and campaigning for the provision of proper support services to help survivors live in dignity. And whilst they were established in 1979 to meet the needs of Black, South Asian and ethnic minority women, they will help anybody in need - irrespective of age, gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation.⠀ ⠀ This is Bvlgari’s first ever customisable necklace and my one is engraved with ‘Kaizen’ which is a Japanese proverb that I just love. It focuses on the idea of continuous incremental improvement through efficient practices and I’ve applied it to my sporting and working life for a few years now 🌱⠀ ⠀ It’s so important that in these times, when inequalities and difficult situations are exacerbated, that we support charities, big and small, as they often find themselves on the front line dealing with these crises alongside emergency services - especially in cases involving people that have No Recourse to Public Funds. I’m really happy that Bvlgari have wanted to donate to such a worthy organisation at this time. ⠀ ⠀ Sending loads of ♥️ ⠀ ⠀ #InternationalWomensDay#SouthallBlackSisters#BvlgariBvlgari

Introducing (Bra) by Dina! Nike’s first ever sports bra takeover, guest edited by moi 🧚🏾‍♀️ link in bio xxx

Back into hard training, got what we wanted from indoors and now onto the main event 👀🔥 #tokyo2020

♥️♥️

Fun fact. We shot this way back in September. The forward thinking people at @womenshealthuk thought it would be wise to get this done super early just in case all the rules changed. Smart move ✨

🏁

We ♥️ races that give out flowers. Would normally give them to my mum or someone in the stands... so I’ll be keeping these ones 😂😍 💐 Thank you for having us @istaf_indoor_duesseldorf

Took the win in Düsseldorf! ⠀ ⠀ Happy to have put together a series of good 60m performances in such a short space of time ⚡️ now for a few days work and then we go again in Lievin ♥️ love being back racing!

mood when you open with an =PB but you weren’t really expecting it 😅✨ catch the event highlights today on BBC1 at 13:45 (U.K. time) xxx #WorldIndoorTour

Finally back at it!!! 💥💥💥 7.08!! A world leading time, equal PB and my fastest season opener ever. What a way to kick off 2021 and end the competition drought. Düsseldorf tomorrow - can’t wait to get on the line again 🚀 #WorldIndoorTour

IT’S RACE WEEK 🏁🏁🏁⠀ ⠀ I can’t even express how EXCITED I am to get back on the circuit! 😭 ⠀ I haven’t raced Indoors for three years (!!!) and I CAN’T WAIT to get out there again⠀ 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥⠀ ⠀⠀ #LetsGetIt #WorldIndoorTour @WorldAthletics

I love Track and Field⠀ ⠀ One of the reasons is that it holds you accountable. You have to be honest with yourself and accept responsibility. ⠀ ⠀ You can’t hide from the clock. If you haven’t done the work, or the ‘right’ work. It’ll show. And even if you’ve been set the ‘right’ work but cut corners by not eating, sleeping or acting right. Again, it’ll show. ⠀ ⠀ Of course there are loads of reasons which may result in us not performing at our ‘peak’ every time - periodisation, errors, injuries, our own private hurdles etc. And sometimes that’s just the way it is. You appreciate + evaluate performances differently in these conditions. Give yourself credit where credit’s due and move on. ⠀ ⠀ But when those logical reasons can’t quite apply. When everything is theoretically meant to ‘work’ and it just doesn’t... you have to be honest with yourself. Because the clock will always be honest when you perform.⠀ ⠀ You have to break it down, see where to improve and build, make key decisions and go again next time. ⠀ ⠀ This whole process makes achieving a personal best even sweeter. You can sit back + be proud. Because for that moment in time you are the best you’ve ever been. All your hard work, practice and focus is showcased and you have the results - and hopefully the smile - to prove it. ⠀ ⠀ Can’t wait to get back to it 🏁♥️

Patiently waiting for life to go back to normal 🙇🏾‍♀️⠀ ⠀ I hope everyone is staying safe, reaching out to friends + fam and when you’re not working, you’re focusing on things that keep you happy and occupied. Sending loads of love. 2021 is going to be a good one 🧚🏾‍♀️

My thoughts halfway through a tough session ⠀ - OMG⠀ - I can’t feel my legs. ⠀ - I can’t see. ⠀ - *nothing - just a blank* - There are dots floating in the sky. - The sky is too bright. Don’t look at it again. ⠀ - I can feel my legs now. And they sting.⠀ - I taste blood. ⠀ - My chest hurts. The air is so cold. - My eyes hurt. ⠀ - Oh we’re only halfway through. I have to do this again, don’t I. ⠀ - *self-pity* ⠀ - I feel sick. ⠀ - I have to walk the lactic out now or it’ll hurt more. ⠀ - Oh no it’s time to go again. ⠀ - I still feel sick. ⠀ - My legs are so wobbly.⠀ - Oh well. ⠀ - It is what it is. ⠀ - It better be worth it ⠀ - It’ll be worth it 😫😂⠀ #thestruggleisreal #tracklife

Blasts from the past!!⠀ ⠀ Merry Christmas to you all.⠀ ⠀ Wishing you love, health, peace and stability on a Christmas Day like no other. I sincerely hope that wherever you are, whether you’re fortunate enough to be with loved ones, caught away from home or by yourself this year, that there’s joy and laughter involved.⠀ ⠀ Zoom for the win 😂 ⠀ Sending loads + loads of love 🎅🏾🎄♥️
