For those well-endowed ladies amongst us, I'm sure you will feel my discomfort, the rest of you can just have a laugh at my troubles!
As some of you will know, a Sports Bra is a feat of engineering, designed to hold everything firmly in place and prevent unneccesary jiggle. I am gifted fairly generously in that department, so a good bra really is a necessity. When I got ready this morning, the secondary shoulder strap was broken, but i thought that i would be ok without it so off I went.
So there I was, pounding away and trying to find something nice to think abou to take my mind off the last 10 minutes of my run, when PING! off flew my left bra strap! It appeared dangling out of my running top and then I suddenly felt a lot freer and I realised what had happened - the hook to change the length of the straps had disengaged, leaving one side completely swinging free!
At first I thought I could get away with just secretly cradling my left boob in hand, but I realised that I would have to run past the local secondary school (and it really wasn't a good look...), so I was contemplating having to stop and walk, but I really, really didnt want to do that. Luckily I was wearing my favourite Adidas top (bright pink, stripes on my shoulders etc, makes me feel like a proper runner!) - lucky because for some reason it has a hanging strap (for a coathanger) at the back around the neckline. So, I got my dangling strap and tied it up to this hanging strap behind my neck and it worked like a dream!
No more jiggle, everything all held back in place, and all achieved without missing a stride! Week 9 is beckoning to me, but I must go and buy another bra!
