Olympic athlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson has created the Switch7 workout alongside Brita. At the end of April I headed to Finsbury Park to have a go at the workout and get my hands on the new BRITA fill&go Active, a squeezable sports bottle which filters whilst you drink. After a while the workouts which were once so exciting become boring. With Stitch7 Katarina has created a workout which challenges and improves your body in seven different ways – from gaining explosive power to hydration and recovery.

I’ve been at that place where workouts are boring and seemingly ineffective. I hate being there so was really excited to try Switch7. Click through below for the workout details and what I thought of it.

There is something magical about 26.2 miles. It’s so easy for me to forget that I have run this distance TWICE. I want to celebrate this a little more often because I am so damn proud that I did it.

But when a friend of mine posted about Sportmaps I knew I had found exactly what I wanted to commemorate my achievements.

Four 6km runs in four days and no knee pain and very little ankle pain. I am back!

I don’t want to celebrate too soon because who knows what will happen to my legs tomorrow, but I can’t help but be excited. I am so close to being able to do what I could before things started to go wrong. My speed and stamina need a lot of work but I have managed to run consecutively for four days and have no limp!

So it has finally sunk in that this is happening. I am running the Lulelemon Seawheeze Half Marathon this year. And more than that it’s happening in Canada so I am going to Vancouver! I have never been there and running a race there with my wonderful family watching is going to be amazing.
