I’ve had a busy month. Actually, scratch that – I’ve had a busy three months! Back in August I started a new job, in September I started my personal trainer course and by October I had to find time to begin my marathon training as well. It’s all been so exciting to do, but as Christmas approaches, I am definitely in need of a break!
I’ll admit it, I’ve been in a bit of an exercise rut this summer. Actually, that’s not true – I started the summer on a high, hitting some weightlifting goals and keeping my running speed up. But a hot day where I pushed myself too hard in half-marathon training gave me a knee injury that has put me off going heavy or fast, pretty much wiping out my usual exercise routine. After a couple of weeks feeling sorry for myself, I decided that I could still do yoga (SO much yoga) and I could head to MoveGB and see what else was out there to satisfy my exercise cravings.

This summer I’m so excited to be heading to a yoga festival! It’s been a while since my Reading days so I’ve been working hard on updating my festival wardrobe, ready for three lovely days of yoga, gin and glitter. Luckily for me, last weekend Crown and Glory came to Bristol with their pop-up stall and invited us down to have a go at designing our own flower headpieces. View Full Post
