My first ever sports bra was a Shock Absorber one. I loved it and it suited my needs perfectly. However after working out more and developing muscles on my upper back, shoulders, and arms I found it really difficult to take the bra off. Enter stage left the new Ultimate Run Bra. I was so excited to try it on and do a few workouts with it. My review is below!

Usually I sign up for races well in advance and then train and panic for them (in equal measure) for months. This one was a little different. I signed up to run the inaugural London 10 Mile 8 days before the start. I don’t think I have ever been so impulsive when it comes to my running before. Usually there are many reasons and excuses as to why I can’t sign up for one at such short notice. This time there were none.

Every Monday a group of amazing pacers lead a group of eager runners all around London. The pacers change and the runners change, and occasionally the time table changes and we run on a different day, but it’s always called Home Run. It’s something I always look forward to.

Barry’s West has arrived! After four years in London, the studio has finally opened their third studio in Queensway and last week I had the chance to try an exclusive Nike x Barry’s West class led by Mr PMA himself, Faisal.

For the uninitiated of you (like I was about a week ago) PMA = Positive Mental Attitude and as far as I am concerned this is as important as physical health. I have been lucky enough to train with Faisal before – he’s always encouraging, motivating, and has the best tunes! (Seriously, I was singing along for the whole class)

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.
