Two years ago my hubby bought me a pair of (skin tight!) Ronhill leggings for my birthday. At that time I wasn't running and hadn't even heard of the C25K programme. I was going to the gym a couple of times a week on and off but wasn't really committed and hadn't found my exercise of choice.
As I didn't even know who Ronhill was I thought the leggings were for the gym and duly tried them on. Well........ I was always slim and lucky enough not to have a weight problem, BUT the leggings looked bloody awful on me. They were unforgiving! My legs were bumpy, lumpy, sticking out in places they shouldn't have, my thighs met in the middle, I wobbled, my ar*e had totally collapsed! You get the picture. OMG I couldn't even look in the mirror. I badly needed to tone up otherwise everything would just head further south with each passing year. There was NO way I was wearing those leggings to the gym so I kept them in a drawer and forgot about them. Until today.
I was looking for something else and found them. Cor blimey, I thought, they're a pair of Ronhill's! Clever hubby! So I tried them on.
I couldn't believe the transformation. They fitted perfectly. My legs were slim and toned, my bum was tight and perky, my tummy was flat (ish). I looked like ....... well I looked like a runner! So I wore them today and felt absolutely fantastic!
I was chuffed to bits especially as toning was not a priority for me. Getting fit was. But what an unexpected gift.
Thank you running. It just gets better and better.
