Even Olympic medallists need a day off
For most of us the festive season involves at least a few days of food, family and fizz but having just one day off is a luxury for Jessica Ennis.
The Team GB athlete has had a pretty impressive year.
‘I move my week around so that my rest day is on Christmas Day,’ says Jessica, 26.
‘This year I’m having all of my family over and will cook with my fiancé Andy – I can’t wait.’
Her strict training regime doesn’t leave much space for indulgence so Jessica makes the most of Christmas dinner.
‘I train on Boxing Day, so I feel I can maximise what I eat on Christmas Day!’ she says.
‘Christmas is great and I think you should enjoy it and indulge.’
