Evening all- and thanks for all the comments on my last post- I really appreciate everything you say 🙂
I hope you all got out and enjoyed the beautiful weather today. I was raring to go, and got to try out my new sports bra;
I like Shock Absorber ones, but was put off this one before because of the double strap at the back. But Rose convinced me (thanks 🙂 ) and I am so glad she did. I read on the Womens Running forum that the easiest way to put it on it so have the top strap done up (it’s like a bikini strap) and then do the other one as normal. It was really comfy (I was surprised) and this morning I did my fave 8.5 mile route and it was comfy the whole way. Hooray! I spent a lot of my run listening to the new marathon talk podcast, and now I can listen to it without feeling like a fraud 😉 ! I am also tempted by some Thoosa running gear- I have a code for 20% off and free postage before the end of October so I think I will order some tomorrow. Once home, I had a fab snack;
My fave part was the yummy Cranberry Apple Cherry Clif bar- I love them! The fruity flavours are turning out to be my faves so I am looking forward to stocking up at Christmas. I still cannot get over how much bigger the American ones are.
Now I just wanted to mention marathon talk, and specifically one of the guests they had on this week. It is a guy who has so far lost 120 pounds, and has gone from being totally inactive, to competing in 5k, 10k, half, full marathons and even an ironman. There is a link to a video of him, which is totally inspiring- it has footage of him right frrm his first runs. My fave part is his tag line at the end- If you want to do it, all you have to do it do it. Anyway, I really enjoyed the interview and I would recomend the video if you are in need of inspiration.
This afternoon has been spent mostly laying in front of the TV, and partaking in some of this;
Teapigs chocolate tea with coconut milk- yum!
So, my question today is what inspires you?
