So, moving on, how are you all? Go on, tell me a story.... As for me, aside from being the laziest beast ever, I have some new and exciting things to show and tell, are you sitting comfortably? Operation Run This Town is well and truly underway, with both myself and the other members putting training into action big style and not only have we been running our little legs off (and sweating WAY too much) we now have a logo
Oh yes, isn't that just a whole load of kick-ass, I think so. Mahoosive thanks to Cat (@catreenie) for doing all the hard work and the lush Sam (@samcentric) for getting all of it into action. Training for me is going alot better than it has been doing previously - I'm back to running with no walking breaks and also stretching like a god damn banshee before+after every run.... I'm getting there that's for sure. It's not easy but there is progress, and the help and support of my fellow #RunThisTown crew is def helping (we all need a kick up the ass sometimes right) There is still time people to get involved - whether you are situated in Newcastle or not and if you are a runner but don't class yourself as one, you can still be part of our crew! Get yourself over to Sam's site for more info HERE Now I'm up and running and averaging 4+ miles every other day, I need to get me on another half mara training plan - anyone got any ideas?
Next up, I'm talking swag.... Nike swag to be exact. And yes, this has something to do with the above, but after simply making do with only one pair of Nike running socks and continuously washing them everytime I wore them I decided to stop. It was high time I got me some new socks.... and trainers... and, err, clothes. Yep, you're right I couldn't stop myself, who knew Nike had so much nice stuff!
Look at those trainers huh!?! I've bored pretty much everyone already about these babies but yeah, seriously look at them!! I shall be doing another blog post in detail about all my Nike swag, but lordy do I feel good when I'm running!
As well as spending (too) much money on my running habit, it made for a nice day out in London with my brother: As well as seeing the sights and shopping the shops, we had the most gorgeous sunny picnic in St James park... perfect...
After a glorious weekend and the return to work in the heat inevitable, it seemed like everything was going to be just a little bit dull in comparison, so imagine my absolute joy when my very own pair of self designed shoes came winning their way to me from the lovelies at Upper Street Shoes.... more on this soon
So, all in all you could say I've been busy. Busy with work, busy with life and busy with getting my life back to a schedule..... who says being an adult isn't fun...
What have you been up to?
