Ran my furthest distance today. I was spurned on by this new app called the Samsung Hope Relay. For every mile I ran with my GPS phone, £1 was donated to charity. How lovely is that! You take a picture of your face and stick it on top of a little running cartoon. I was only going to aim for 3.5, but thought, ‘may as well get it up to £4’. Ended up getting lost because one of the paths led into a housing estate and had to ask for directions. Took off my HotPants at the end, soaked through. Awesome!
Leg warmers will be back soon!
Would also like to thank those beautiful ladies at Zaggora, as my Viva’s have arrived! I came back in after my run to find they had arrived. So excited, planning on getting a good picture when the sun comes out. They’re very snug fitting, so I’m hoping for even more fat burn!
Planning on doing a Jillian Michaels DVD tomorrow, need to give these new HotPants their first run. So excited!
Also planning on hitting the Southport food festival tomorrow, can’t wait for that either; a chocolate festival, real ale festival and a bake off. I’ll certainly be gaining back those calories I burnt off!
Finally got into the city centre today, spent an hour looking in Marks and Sparks for a dress with zero success. Walked out the store with a pack of Percy Pigs and some teacakes. Three cheers for Cherry Bakewells!
What, they’re only …200 calories EACH!
Had a lovely scheduled rest day today, only bit of light yoga in my HotPants, still managed to break into a light sweat though, keeping the burning going! Hopefully it will counter that bakewell. Debated whether to go for a bike ride, but by the time I got back home it was bucketing it down (as per usual up North).
I did have a look briefly at possible races in the area. There is the BUPA Great Manchester run, which is a 10k in May next year, but I wanted something sooner and will be doing the Liverpool Half Marathon next March if I can get the time off and get down to Liverpool. This whole goal thing seems far more real now!
