It’s spring and it is time to get out and start pounding the pavements again. The idea is to alternate with Spin classes and that should hopefully keep me injury free. I always run with music – sometimes I get so in the zone I actually get chills and I can feel the rush of energy and endorphins that a great track gives me. Normally I run with an iPod shuffle – it’s tiny, neat and light so doesn’t hinder the – ah hem – athlete in me. However, when I was back in the UK I really wanted to take some photos of the amazing views I am privy too when running over t’moors. That meant either holding my camera while running – no thanks – or taking my iPhone. The latter option was obviously preferable.
Now I’ve always been put off by wearing a cumbersome arm band while running but I have to say this one I used was very light, sweat proof and easy to adjust. It’s the iPhone neoprene armband from MobileFun.com. It’s also a pretty decent price at just $12.99 especially when you compare with similar products on the market. If you are like me, and feel the need to document as you run, I can recommend this – perfect for keeping all your Instagram followers up to date. The other advantage of running with an iPhone of course is that you can actually keep track accurately of miles and pace using an app like MapMyRun. You can even bore people to tears on Facebook with how many miles you’ve run:)
What else have I been up to? Well yesterday I went to Target to stock up on some Spring clothes for Poppy – you have to be quick as they disappear fast. She thinks her Mommy is ‘totally the best’ for buying her her first denim jacket. I also sneaked in a pair of jeans for me. Target have some fabulous bright clothes in right now – lots of tie dye and dip dye items too – right up my alley. These jeans were just $25 and they come in green and purple too.
Finally here are my ootd for the past couple of days. I’ll be reporting back later with a new haircut – think I’m going back to the faux hawk/undercut – I feel the rebel in me rising again.
