Every month Jessica answers some of your questions. And we publish them right here!
Franziska from Dublin started athletics aged 8 after watching me compete. She asked:
“How often I train?”
“I train twice a day, six days a week. But when you are young attending athletics club is a great way to develop.”
Maisie from Hitchin asked me lots of questions as part of her homework assignment:
“Do I get homesick when I am away at competitions.”
“I definitely miss my husband, and now I will have to leave Reggie at home too which will be hard. You also asked if I want Reggie to do athletics – I want him to try lots of different sports – but I wont be a pushy mum.”
Kyle from Highbury, aged 7 wrote a very lovely letter:
“It sounds as though you are doing all the right things towards being an athlete – stick at it and your coaches will guide you.”
Emma from Hythe – asked me about choosing a sport – she does swimming and running:
“I would say at 11 keep doing lots of different sports and you will find out which one you like the most. PS love the drawing of me!”
And finally a BIG thanks to Alice for this lovely heart picture Christmas card!
