Happy Women’s Day!
Last weekend, I finally got around to using the Lorna Jane gift voucher I got for Christmas. I’ve been dying for some new workout gear so I was super psyched! The only problem I had? Trying to decide just what to buy. I wanted to buy everything in the shop!
Anyone who knows me knows I’ve been a huge Lorna Jane fan from the beginning. The fit of the clothes is so flattering and while it’s a little pricey, I don’t mind paying because I know that I’m getting good quality which will last me ages.
This time around, I got two pair of running shorts – the Sally kick shorts (they don’t seem to have them on the website anymore but this was the closest I could find) and the LJ Run Shorts, both in black), the Dion Excel Tank in fluro orange, the Holiday Sports Bra and one of LJ’s seamless intimate sports bras in hot pink (I prefer black, but they didn’t have any left in my size). And as it turns out, it was a good day for shopping because with each purchase of $200, you also got a pair of black tights worth $90 for free. Talk about a bargain!
Now I can’t wait to work out in my new gear!
Workout-wise, this week started out with a sluggish 3km run/walk but soon picked up. The first week of autumn still felt like summer so I forced myself out of bed early on Thursday and Friday to beat the heat and go for a run. I managed to get in both a 7km and 6km run and I was pretty happy with that! Plus, I think those speed and hill intervals on the treadmill in the past couple of weeks have paid off as I was definitely tackling slopes with a lot more fortitude than usual. Hooray!
I finally rounded the week off with a Body Pump class on Saturday and a well-deserved rest day on Sunday.
Have a great weekend, everyone! x
