Last week adidas celebrated the launch of their new Pure BOOST X running trainers with a series of events in London. There were the trainers all of TeamGB had been wearing in Rio and I really wanted to try them on. The event I went to was a 45 minute HIIT session hosted on the roof of The Printworks Club followed by a 3k run to The Sports Edit.

We’d planned a holiday full of walking and natural beauty. Thankfully with the weather behaving perfectly that’s exactly what we got.

Nike’s Unlimited You campaign has been running throughout the Summer of Sport and the aim is to get people to reach and then break their own limits. I love this ethos and the fact that they use real athletes to help promote it. Unlimited You has already set Amsterdam aflame and over the weekend it took over London.

For London 2012 I was a Games Maker and fully emmersed in the whole spectacle. For Rio 2016 I sadly have to adult and can’t change my waking / sleeping habits but I can watch everything possible and that is exactly what I have been doing.
