New Year Resolutions 2013

What’s in Store for 2013?

In January Mr F and I escaped to Riviera Maya in Mexico for some much needed winter sun. Looking grey and slightly knackered after cooking Christmas dinner for 10 people (my first Christmas dinner – just call me Michel Roux Jr). Feeling rather unwell we hopped on a plane and and I could not wait to hit the beach in my new Freya Showboat Bikini and ponder about what 2013 was going to have in store.

Having always set goals for myself each year, I had already started to make a few notes about what I wanted to achieve in 2013 – after all if you don’t know what it is you want to achieve, how can you go about getting it right?

Racer back love with Freya Active

Racer back love with Freya Active 0

Never one to make life easy for myself, I am currently training for Cyletta, a women’s 40k bike ride in Brighton in 2 weeks time, and Run to the Beat, my second attempt at the half marathon debut I made last year with Team Bangs on the Run.

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.

Team Bangs cross the line! 0

Yes, this past Sunday 25th September Team Bangs on the Run did our thing and completed the Nike Run to the Beat half marathon.

13.1 miles. For me, that’s a major achievement, as it was for the other ladies. We had all overcome so much to tackle the challenge, and I am still so elated for having crossed that finish line on Sunday.

Team Bangs are grateful to Freya for the Freya Active bras that kept our collective precious assets in place. Check out how
