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!
I think I have fallen out of like with running. I do it and I enjoy it but that’s about it. I have one race coming up and am slightly meh about it and wish I was more excited. So many of my friends are running the running the London Marathon next month and I’m not even jealous of them. I can’t remember the last time I ever felt so apathetic towards running so yesterday I sat down and actually thought about why and the answer is so simple: pain.
I was trying to think of a way to introduce you all to the latest amazing person to star in my London ETC series but when it comes to Emma, the first thing I want you all to know about her is that I LOVE HER. She is one of the strongest, most determined, most inclusive people I know. What’s more she is one of those genuinely lovely people who actually wants you to succeed. Emma is a former athlete, keen runner and Nike pacer. Like me, she was a Games Maker in 2012 (and like me she loved it as much as I did!). Unlike me she has completed an indoor Iron Man and the 24 hour burpee challenge (!!) In this weeks’ London ETC she talks about her love of training outdoors, how she honours her father’s memory, and what healthy means to her.
Welcome back to another London ETC! Today the star of the show is Tashi Skervin – runner, blogger, PT in training, and all round wonderful human. She was one of the first people I ever followed on Instagram and I have absolutely loved following her journey. To have her star in this week’s London ETC has made my day! She talks to me all about her favourite areas of London, what healthy means to her, and how she plans to slay 2017. Enjoy!
If I ever write an autobiography that will be the title. With my twisted ankle and constantly-in-pain knee, running has become little more than a beautiful dream. I can’t remember the last time I ran without pain. In fact I can’t remember the last time I ran 5k! Usually when the joints get a little too painful I rest, let them heal and then start running again. Only to repeat the cycle. This time I have decided to get them better properly. So that meant physio and a Profeet 3D analysis.
