I will start by saying I am Welsh and it has been proven that Welsh people (even us ladies) have larger thighs than the rest of the UK. That said, I did start dancing (ballet, jazz, tap etc) at the age of 18 months. I swapped my ballet shoes for high heels at age 18 and then high heels for bare feet (and a Shotokan suit) when I had my daughter. So I was always going to have large thighs. I have now started running (did week 6 run 2 last night) and they are just getting bigger (they are and have always been very solid though ). Last night I reached an all time low with despair about the size of my thighs. My husband had bought me a lovely pair of silky pyjamas (50 shades kind from Tesco) . I put them on and they fit wonderfully. Then disaster struck. I squatted down (to pick the cat up :)) and they split all down the thighs :). I just thought I would share this and cheer everyone up on a very grey and wet day.
