Training & new Freya Active 0

Hello lovely Fitting Talk readers!

I am sure you watched the Olympic Opening ceremony like me on Friday – wasn’t it MINDBLOWING? I loved the whole thing, from Branagh as Brunel to Mr Bean, Bond and the Queen, Becks on a boat…all of it was magical inspiring and just so….us.

So in the Olympic spirit I am of course still training for Cycletta and Run to the Beat. On Friday I was out on my mountain bike in the fens for 17k bike ride, and today I donned my trusty Team Bangs on the Run top and my Freya Active set to crank out a 4 mile run.

I feel like I have such a long way to go to get my stamina back up enough to be able to do 13 miles in October, but I know the cycling as cross training will help, and I have enough time to get myself there slowly, week by week.

Brook on a bike… 0

I just had to say I had some serious bike and dress envy when I saw the delicious Miss Kelly Brook in this amazing red number. The dress is by the Pretty Dress Company, and has been added to My Style Pinterest board as soon as I saw it. It’s £95 and pretty perfect for the curvy girl I think, certainly a showstopper!

Now, when I train for Cycletta I tend to look a lot sweatier than this, probably covered in rain and mud, and,  in my padded cycling shorts, decidedly less girly.  More

Freya and Dex Diva at the X Factor! 0

Well it doesn’t take much to ask me to go and see Gary Barlow to be honest.

So, when the team at Freya asked me to pop on down to the 02 and check out the X Factor ads being shown during auditions for the next big thing,  I was more than happy to pop along. Tough job and all that, but someone has to, right?

My buddy Jo and I en-route

 

This week I  scooted down to the O2 with one of my best buddies Jo, who also happens to be a die hard Take That fan of the original generation. Oh, and she is partial to Dermot O’Leary too it transpires….I have never seen her look more determined to do something thangetting within 6 feet of the man himself. Luckily we avoided police intervention but narrowly, I suspect. More
