Ok, so it would seem that the fates are conspiring for me to get fit this year. First, the wonderful folks at Next gave me the lovely Davina for Next gear to try out.
Then, the two people I know who actually HATE RUNNING MORE THAN ME, namely my lovely mum and the wonderful Cat from Yellow Days, BOTH suggested running the Race for Life with me. This is on my Day Zero Project list to do again so am keen to get
it ticked off involved.
Then, yesterday, my lovely friend Pam who used to drag me out running in order to get me in shape for my wedding, but sadly moved away shortly after, is back in town and keen to put me through my paces again. OUCH.
So, I have all the necessary, and super stylish, Davina for Next gear, a running buddy and a goal in sight. Thats me all out of excuses then. Dammit.
Well the lovely Pammy is in MUCH better shape than me so before our first outing this Sunday I decided to have a little trial run on my own. Not far mind. Just round the block a bit. And tonight was the night.
I was yet to try on the Davina for Next capri pants, but when I did was delighted to find that concealed in the waistband is a small zip pocket. Perfect for carrying your house key and eliminating the need to stuff it in your shoes or socks or concocting weird wrist-straps from hairbands. HOORAY. They are also extremely comfortable, tight-fitting and supportive, reducing my ass-wobbling fears considerably, and even have glow-in-the-dark strips for evening joggers. You can just about make this out here…
Thank heavens she decided to put these on the legs and not across the bum or there could have been some seriously dazzled drivers in Bristol tonight.
This was also the first proper test for the Davina for Next white sports shoes and racer-back vest. The vest was comfy and supportive and the trainers felt great. They are really light and not a bleeding ankle in sight. SUCCESS.
So the Davina for Next gear held up really well.
I, on the other hand…
Lord help me on Sunday…go easy Pam eh?
