OK baby lets go dancing

OK baby lets go dancing

It's very nearly my 3 year runniversary. I have been trying for the last year to work on my speed alongside my marathon training.

I watched American Hussle at the weekend and I love it... The clothes, music, vibe etc and I particularly love the disco scene. See clip:

So I downloaded the disco mix of, ' I feel love,' this morning and had it on a loop. It was fabulous, I did some boogie moves and it really powered me on. As a result I got two new PB's... I am soooooooooo made up. Pic is me in elated mood just after I finished.

5k: 26.54

1 mile: 8.23

Just goes to show the effect music can have...

Happy panthering

See if you can find the Patrick Cowley Mega-mix of IFL. 15 and a half minutes of disco oblivion.

Just downloaded that too... Can't wait to have them all on a rol for Bath Half on Sunday. I think I'd better wear disco running stuff too?

Yay - well done! Very speedy :)

My recent PBs were also music fuelled so I agree totally.

I better get me some disco!!!!!

I just bought "100 Disco Hits"!

Honestly, this running malarkey makes you do some odd things :)

Well done... You disco diva xx but hold on a second... fluorescent... lycra.. headband... aren't you ALREADY wearing '80's disco gear' when you are out running? Put on some ' leg warmers' and you have the full set?

Fab times JJ! Brilliant. I use to love discos and this song just brings it all back! The other one that always got me on the dance floor is "Can you feel it". Oooh I must add these to my playlist! Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

I wonder if that's why I'm slow, listening to folk chatting about their wheelchairs or bipolar on BBC Ouch or Gardener's Question Time or Infinite Monkey Cage.. or Arvo Pårt?

Lovely post!
