New trainers alert


I know how you all like a piccy of new shoes, so here are mine. A lunchtime visit to Run and Become by Victoria station has resulted in my first gait analysis and huge personal embarrassment running up and down the side street, as I tried out several different pairs! It just doesn’t feel the same in work clothes and I usually don’t sprint either! Not to mention the lady who clearly needed to take her phone call out of the office, but sadly picked the very same side street as lil’ ol’ me, jogging up and down with my jeans rolled up and dangly earrings flapping in the breeze.🤦🏻‍♀️

I must say that nothing was too much trouble and I was allowed to try as many pairs as I could bear the outside exposure, and I wasn’t put under any pressure to buy the most expensive pair. Even my “there’s only one thing wrong with them” comment to the first pair was met with a wry grin as the sales assistant said “colour?” So, I’ll jog about the house for a bit, and then on clean roads, just to make sure that they feel the same wearing lycra 😂 and then I’ll see how they affect my times/distance, while watching a pig fly past! 🐖 What larks! 😁
