Benefits of running - heels!

It was a run day but when I woke I could definitely feel the effects of a long bike ride yesterday so thought I might leave it a day. However, something about catching up on the posts on here works its magic and I was soon kitted up and out for my morning 5k. One of my better times too!

Afterwards I went up to the outlet centre and spent up in the Nike factory store. :-) After that I was trying on dresses in the Hobbs sale (as one does). The sales lady brought me some heels to try with the dress and commented on my ' fabulously toned legs' !! I know she was probably only trying to sell me the dress but it made my day! Another unlooked for benefit of all this hard work...

Oooh get you Ully!!! Toned!!! Good for you. All that cycling and running paying dividends obviously. Did you find a frock in the sale? I do like Hobbs but they seem horribly over-priced


I did, but I'm lucky enough to be able to go to their outlet store so when they have a sale I can just about justify it!


Small compliments always motivate me so much more. A colleague recently said I was looking really healthy and that was exactly what I needed to push me to go for a post-work run.


well done on the toned legs but I really thought you were going to say, I looked at the heels and the dress and said damn I could get new lovely ugly trainers for that !!!


Ah, I'd already been to the Nike outlet store!
